Hi I'm Heather

I'm a wife, a book lover, an amateur cook, and a wanna-be pilot. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, a mother, and a homemaker. I love to read and would spend most of my time doing just that if I could. We recently had over 8 years of prayers answered and now have a beautiful son. He is amazing, and we have loved every second of pregnancy and his 7 months of life. My husband and I love doing home DIY projects. It gives us with the opportunity to work side by side and learn new skills together. I've been lucky to be able to travel back and forth with my husband to Japan for his job. It's opened my eyes to a whole new world of food and flavors. I love to cook and am constantly trying new recipes. I love to go for walks and to play floor hockey. Someday, I plan on getting my pilot's license.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I was the youngest child and I watched some of my siblings make choices that brought them pain and unhappiness. I saw the disappointment on my parents faces each time and knew that I never wanted to be the one to put that look on their faces. Many of the choices I made, I made for them. I set the goal to be their first daughter to get married in the temple, the first way, the right way. Then when the Mt. Timpanogos temple was built, I went through the open house with my family. The tour took us through the bride's dressing room and I was able to stand in front of the large, ornate mirror in the room. As I looked in that mirror, I saw myself on my wedding day. I was in a pure white dress and I felt beautiful. And suddenly I knew. I knew that I wanted to be married there. That someday I would be sealed to my eternal companion for time and all eternity within those walls. And I wanted it for me. Because I knew without a doubt that it was the right thing to do.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and get to teach and learn from the primary children. They are so pure and innocent, and I love getting to teach them. They are so eager to learn and to put that knowledge to use. I love the simplicity of the gospel in primary. I am a child of God. Jesus Christ is our Savior and died for our sins. Families are forever. These are the perfect building blocks for strong testimonies and a firm foundation in the gospel. I'm so glad to be able to strengthen my testimony and help the children grow theirs too.
