Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife. I am the mother of four kids. I love to read. I find great satisfaction in organizing things and I am a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both members of the Church so I was raised a Mormon. I think I am blessed to be a person of faith. I always found it easy to believe what I was being taught. I found very little doctrine to doubt and my youth was filled with the comforting knowledge of who I was, why I am here and where I am going. I met my husband in my early twenties and he was not a Mormon. As our relationship progressed, I had to ask myself some hard questions about what in life was important to me. Was the religion of my parents really MY religion or was it something I would be willing to walk away from? Did I want to continue to live my life with the ideals and beliefs I had been taught or should I give it all up to be with someone I was growing to love? At this point in my life, I developed strong testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for myself. I knew that what I believed was true and the gospel of Jesus Christ was not something I was willing to abandon. This was a very personal journey for me, I knew in my heart what I believed and I felt great peace with my decision to marry my husband. So after three years of dating and agreeing to disagree on our religious views, we got married. I continued going to church and tried my best to show my husband how important the gospel was to me in simple ways. After eight years of marriage my husband joined the church. He wrote that he had decided to be baptized in a card and gave it to me for Christmas. It was the best Christmas gift I have ever received! I feel incredibly blessed that we are both members of this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to do what is right. I try to be the best wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend that I can be. I try to consciously be more Christ-like, to be more compassionate to others, to love more and criticize less, to think of others before myself, to love more, and to serve others. I am nowhere near perfect but I can improve myself daily by living the gospel. This past summer I was lucky enough to be in charge of a girl's camp. The girls in our congregation age 12 to 18 get to spend 4 days together enjoying the beauty of God's creations and building relationships with one another while learning of and feeling of the love that our Savior has for each one of us.
