Hi I'm Teresa

I was born and raised in Mesa Arizona. I have been married for 31 years and have 8 wonderful children, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My family joined the church when I was 5 years old in Illinois. I come from a family with 6 siblings, and was raised by a single mother. I have been married for 31 years and have 8 children. 5 Biological and 3 adopted. I love to read on my kindle and do crafts. I love spending time with my family and we often get together for family dinners. My husband and 4 of our children are going to school to become Court Reporters. Life is busy but I am really enjoying it for the most part.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of my Savior Jesus Christ. It gives me strength to know that I am a child of God and that my Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ love me. I know I can find peace and comfort from life's trials as I pray for help everyday. I love to read my scriptures and find great comfort in the words written on those pages. I know that the Book of Mormon was written by the Lords Prophets for us to benefit from in these latter days. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and restored the Gospel back the the earth. I know this is the Lords church. I have prayed and received the answer for myself that these things are true. Because I know these things, life makes more sense to me, I know what my purpose is and where I will go after this life, which brings me great comfort and peace.

How I live my faith

My family tries to follow the example of Jesus Christ. We Try to help others and to serve in church callings. We read our Scriptures together everyday and pray together as a family. This helps us start the day off in a positive way and helps us remember to make better decisions during our day.
