Hi I'm Misty

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 16 years. I am the mother of 4 children and have a step-son who is married with one beautiful little girl and another child on the way. My children range in ages from 14 to 9. I work full time in Special education. I have been a full time student trying to get my degree to be a special education teacher. I enjoy camping, and being out doors. I also love sports, especially softball. Some of my other interests are music, reading, watching movies and laughing.

Why I am a Mormon

I would have to say i was baptised a member of the church as a child. I think i was baptised because i had felt the spirit in my life and knew the right answers to the questions. I have some very special memories of my baptism. One being that it took 8 times to get me completely under water. Back then we wore dresses and my dress kept floating to the top. I think when i was baptised i had a VERY simple testimony of the gospel, and hoped and prayed it would grow into a full testimony. Then as i grew i learned more about the gospel and did develop a stronger testimony. I thought this testimony was strong enough to carry me through any trial i faced. It worked for a while. As a teenager i did face trials, nothing major but it seemed that satin knew exactly when i would have a weak moment, and he would hit me. This seems to have followed through my entire life. Even to this day he knows when and what to hit me with. So it is a continual struggle to keep him at arms length if not further. As a mother i often (everyday) feel unworthy to be a mother of 4 of Gods choice spirits. I know that these feelings are from satin, but i still get them, along with the feelings of am i good wife and do i do my best with my callings and on, and on, and on. But i have a testimony and if i work at it everyday i can handle these trials. It is one thing to grow a testimony but i have to work continually to keep it equal to my trials. I am sooo not perfect. I have bad days and then i have really bad days, but i also have good and great days. These are the ones i focus on. Prayer is a huge thing in my life. I often find myself reviewing things i want to talk to my heaven father about. I know he answers my prayers and my Heavenly Fahter loves me. He walks beside me when i am strong and carries me when i am weak. I know that one day i will kneel at his feel and i pray to be worthy to hear the words "well done you have been a valient daughter".

How I live my faith

I have two calling in the church right now. I make the ward program each sunday for sacrament meeting, and i lead the music for one of our meetings. I coach sports for my kids, and love to work with children that have disablilities that range from bi-polar to autism to learning disabilities. I find joy in other people.
