Hi I'm Auburn

I'm a mother of three. I love running. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Missouri. I moved to Arizona 8 years ago, after graduating from college. Not long after moving, I met my husband. We were married in the Mesa, Arizona Temple. We now have three beautiful children. I'm blessed to be at home with them every day. I enjoy running, reading, and graphic design.

Why I am a Mormon

After graduating from college I was living in a new city, and searching for a church home. I met a Mormon at work. I began asking him questions about his church. I didn't know much about Mormons, and the little I knew was mostly false. I asked my co-worker if I could attend church with him to see what it was like. I went one Sunday and felt the spirit so strongly that I chose to be baptized only two weeks later. It has been the greatest decision of my life. The church has brought me much joy, and I am grateful for the guidance and peace it brings. I love the Savior, I love the temple, I love my family. I am glad that we will be together forever.

How I live my faith

I love going to to church. I feel at home there, and feel I am among friends. I currently work with the youth, specifically the young women ages 14-15. I learn from the girls, and hope that they are learning from me as well. We spend Wednesday evenings together, and one hour together on Sunday. In the past I have served in other roles as an activities coordinator, teacher, and as a secretary. I am grateful for the "callings" in our church. I like how they give us opportunities to serve in different capacities, and to grow as individuals.
