Hi I'm Aili

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have four daughters and a loving husband. I get to stay home with my girls and I am so grateful for the opportunity. I love to sing, read, and write, and I am an excellent teacher because I have to understand how everything fits together. I am passionate about music. I love to read and learn new things. I am always interested in the why and how: things, people, relationships, motivations. I am not shy but I do need my quiet time. I love talking with people and learning together.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were baptized into the church when I was a small child. I always felt peace and love at church. When I was a teenager I often would go to church by myself while my family was going through some hard times. Going to church helped me feel loved by my Heavenly Father. I needed to be there on Sundays. I know that God loves us and made a beautiful plan for us. We have a great opportunity to grow and learn while we're on Earth. I am grateful for my knowledge of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I am a busy person! I have to prioritize constantly. My family comes first. I am so grateful that we have a home full of love and respect. I know what a blessing it is to have a home that is a haven from the world. We love to get together with friends and have people over, but my favorite times are quiet times with just the family. I love music and teach group singing classes. I often pray for help in teaching my students because I know that the Lord wants them to reach their full potential. I participate in the Messiah performance at Christmas because I feel such a strong testimony of Christ when we all rejoice in music together. On Sundays I teach music to the children at church. We sing songs and play games to learn the gospel together. I spend a few hours every week putting together a lesson, making fun props, creating games, and posting my ideas online to share with other primary choristers around the world. I never put together a lesson without having my own testimony strengthened by the Holy Spirit testifying of the truth of the things I will teach. And when I teach and talk with the kids on Sunday, I am constantly amazed at the truths they know and find totally obvious. The children know that they have a Father in Heaven who loves them. They know how to make good choices. Everything is so black and white to them and it helps me remember that the gospel of Christ is simple and the path is straight. If we follow Christ we will be happy and blessed. The children teach me this every week and I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve them and be blessed because of it.
