Hi I'm Nancy

I just retired from the teaching profession. (25 years) Now, I am teaching the 12 year olds in Sunday School, and just love it!!!

About Me

I am recently retired. I love everything!! I have 6 children, 3 are married, 3 are single. I have 5 going on 6 grandchildren, 2 boys and 3 girls. I like to organize my time and look for fun ideas on redecorating, sewing projects or any fun life improvement ideas.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon religion. I have come to know for myself that the church is true. This process of "knowing," started when I was sitting in primary as a little girl and feeling so much joy, and a burning feeling in my chest that certain things that I was hearing were true. Since that time I have had many uplifting, joyous, fulfilling, elevating experiences from living a clean wholesome life that I have constantly tried to build into my family. I am so grateful to now have more free time to ponder the joys I notice in my life and set goals to be more like my Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother.

How I live my faith

My husband and I like to plan and set goals together. We start the day, reading scriptures together, taking turns praying, after we discuss the day and ask specifically for God's help in these things. In the evening we have a gratitude prayer, to thank Heavenly Father for helping us and for the miracles we experienced throughout the day, with His help!! Then, I try to eat a healthy breakfast and exercise. One of my main goals in my day is to pray for or to help members in my famiy. I think a lot about preparing for my Church responsibilities and preforming my priorities as a daughter of God. So I carry a notebook around with me and write down things I would like to do next. I like to say polite things on the phone and encourage people that I come in contact with. I like to maintain a grateful heart for every good thing that I notice and get down on my knees and thank Heavenly Father for specific blessings that come during the day. I try to focus on positive attributes of my family. When I think about problems I have or have had, I try not to dwell on the past, but refocus on what is the best thing I can do in my actions to more align with the most positive outcome. I tell my children frequently that the 3 most important words are: love, gratitude and forgiveness.
