Hi I'm Treva

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom with 5 children. I spend most days doing laundry, cleaning and cooking. Once my kids get home from school, I change hats and become a taxi service and homework tutor, sometimes simultaneously. This school year, I am helping two of my children with algebra and geometry (guess my teacher was right when she said I would use geometry in real life). I am also relearning important dates in history, drilling sight words, and flashing lots of math facts. None of what I do is very exciting, just necessary. When my last child leaves home (and I can have uninterrupted thoughts again), I would like to be... ???? I'll let you know when I figure that out, but it will probably have something to do with writing and teaching.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon Faith, and like most kids who are raised Mormon, when I was young I believed because my parents taught me to believe. However, at some point everyone has to look inside themselves and decide is this what I really believe, or is this just what my parents believed? Borrowed light can only take you so far and then you have to find light of your own. That's what happened to me once I left home and found I could no longer lean on my parents faith. I spent a lot of time soul searching, reading the Book of Mormon and asking is this really true? The answers didn't come all at once or in some powerful manifestation, but they came little by little as I continued to attend church and study and pray. Today, I am a Mormon not just because I was raised as one, but because I have received my own witness that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and contains the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am a cubscout leader. I love working with the cubscouts. Working with cubscout age boys provides me with lots of laughs, gives me a place to let my hair down and be a little crazy, but mostly it gives me a chance get to know some wonderful boys who are becoming great leaders.
