Hi I'm Andrea

I am from Arizona. I am a wife and mother of five. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother to five busy kids. Our oldest is 12 years old and our baby is 10 months old. I love being a mom even though it is the hardest thing I could do. My favorite part of the day is when my kids get home from school and I get to hear all about their day. When I am not busy being a mom I love to read, make crafts and exercise.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into a wonderful family. I grew up being taught the gospel by my parents and they always set a great example for me on how to live the gospel and keep the commandments. I remember when I was a young child thinking that my friends of other faiths thought their church was true so what was it about my church that made it the true church on the earth. I began to gain a testimony of my own after I was baptized and grew in understanding the gospel. During my senior year in high school I truly studied and read the Book of Mormon for the first time. I prayed and felt that it was true. I just knew it! I have had my testimony grow as I have tried to live my life as my Heavenly Father would want me to. I know He loves me and has given us His gospel to help us through this life so we may someday live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life as my Father in Heaven would want his daughter to live. I love to be around people and make friends and serve others whenever I can. I live in a great neighborhood with wonderful people. I love that there are people on my street that I know I can turn to if I ever need anything. I hope that I can always be the person to help of they were to ever be in need. I serve in the boy scout program as a cub scout den leader for the 9 year old boys in our neighborhood. I love working with these fun, energetic boys. It is sometimes a challenge to meet all the needs they have but I know it is important for them and they are learning such valuable things in this program. I often think that I am learning so much more than I could ever teach them.
