Hi I'm Monica

I'm a wife, a mom and a Medical Assistant. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother. I have a wonderful husband of 3 years and a beautiful 2 year old daughter. I really enjoy being the mom of our household but I also love having a career. I work in a doctors office and I really enjoy helping people feel better. I'm also very crafty. I love to make things, whether it's food or decorations for our home. .

Why I am a Mormon

I feel like being a member of this church is the only way I could be happy on this earth. I love the church's teachings. I love that I can learn to come closer to our Heavenly Father through those teachings. I love my family and I am thankful that I can be with them forever. I know that we have a Heavenly Father that loves us and I know that through His gospel we will one day be able to return to Him.

How I live my faith

Twice a month I organize activities for the 10 and 11 year old girls in my ward. We try to do productive stuff but we also like to have fun. I feel like this is the perfect calling for me because I can relate to girls that age. I like that I can be a positive influence in their lives.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Monica
I think that modesty and chastity are closely related. If a person is modest in how they dress and act they are less likely to feel comfortable doing something unchaste. I plan on teaching my children to be modest by example. I have found a personal style that is cute and modest at the same time. I also don't curse, in front of them or ever. I have a daughter and I think it's important to teach them to be modest starting when they are young. I know that if she is modest in dress, language and behavior she will develop a self worth based on her personality and attributes. Show more Show less
