Hi I'm Tricia

I'm a mother of 4 girls, a part-time musician, and I teach violin and viola lessons. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful husband and 4 girls, ages 10 and under. We recently adopted a male shih tzu who was abandoned and rescued. They keep me very busy! I feel blessed to be a "stay at home mom" and have tons of fun with my girls. It can get a bit crazy at times, but it's worth it. I am also a violist. This has been a big part of my life. I find time to do freelance playing at various events, along with teaching some private lessons. Our family loves hiking and the outdoors. Other activities I enjoy are snow skiing, excercising, long drives (if it's a nice view and there is a vacation involved), and spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and had many special experiences growing up which contributed to my testimony. Being a mormon always felt right to me, however in my teen years I really prayed for a deeper feeling of it's truth. I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. I did not fully understand every detail, but had many experiences that confirmed what I was reading was true. One thing I love is how strong I feel the spirit at church...especially through music. It's amazing!

How I live my faith

Not surprisingly I often am able to be involved in the musical areas of church. I currently lead the music for our Sunday meeting. I am in charge of choosing the hymns we sing, which can be fun. I also help plan monthly activites for the women. We do service projects, social dinners, and learning activites. I am never bored! On my own I pray daily, do my best to read scriptures with my family and on my own, and we also have a Family Evening on Monday nights. Everyday I am thankful to be a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I strive to be a better person because of what I have learned. A few years ago my brother, who was 33, died a painful death from cancer. He had 3 brain tumors when he was diagnosed...which was secondary. He left behind 3 young boys and a wife. This has been the biggest trial of my life so far, and I depended on my faith to get me through this time. There were many small miracles and prayers answered even though he did die. I am thankful for our knowledge of eternal familes and for the peace I get from being a member of the church.
