Hi I'm Beth

I'm a single mother of six beautiful kids. I live in a small town in Northeastern Colorado. I work from home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single mom of 6 school-aged kids. I work from home as a medical transcriptionist. My kids keep me on my toes and keep life interesting, but I have the best of both worlds of being able to be a stay-at-home mom while still working to support my kids. For the most part I work while the kids are at school, but I can be fairly flexible so I can take off when I need to or still work while my kids are home sick. I moved out here to a small country town a couple of years ago from the city. I love being able to raise my kids in the country and I love the people out here.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but like everyone else there comes a point in your life when you have to make the decision for yourself whether you believe the church is true or not, whether you have your own testimony of the church or not. I don't think there is one specific moment in my life when I could say. that was the moment I knew the church was true. For me it came from years of little experiences. Having experinces of praying and having my prayers answered, reading the Book of Mormon and having the Holy Ghost witness to me that it was true. It was the culmination of experiences in my life that led to my testimony of knowing the church was true. Those experiences are also the reason I now raise my children up in the church, hoping that one day they too will gain a testimony for themselves, to know that Jesus is the Christ and to know that he died for us so that one day we can live with him again.

How I live my faith

Within the church I work with our young women, our girls ages 12-18. I help organize the activities that we do each Wednesday. I help organize the camp the girls go to each summer for a week. There are 3 of us leaders that work with the young women; on Sundays we take turns giving the lessons to the young women. We try to teach our youth to hold high standards for themselves, to not always follow the crowd, to stand up for what they believe in and to stay morally clean. We know that youth today have a lot of pressures put on them to do things they know to be wrong. We try to remind them who they are and where they came from and where they are going after this life, so that they make those decisions in life that will be for their good from day to day.
