Hi I'm Angela

I grew up in Nebraska. I'm a mother and a substitute teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Nebraska. I was involved in many activities throughout school including sports, band, choir, National Honor Society, Key Club and more. I graduated from High School and went to college at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. I went on a study abroad trip to Madrid, Spain to help me with my Spanish teaching minor. I graduated with an Elementary Education degree just before heading on my mission to Helsinki, Finland. Following my mission, I taught 1st grade for 3 years and 4th grade for 3 years. Soon after I met my wonderful husband. We were married less than 2 years later and now have a wonderful daughter. I substitute teach and enjoy cooking, couponing, and being a mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a Mormon, but I had to find out for myself if it was the only true and living Church. As I continued to learn and apply the principles I was taught as a child and youth, I found great blessings, peace, and comfort in my life. I knew that the principles were true. I also became closer to my Heavenly Father through prayer and knew that I could find out answers through study and prayer. The Church's teachings are able to answer the hard questions about the purpose of this life and helped me know there is a life after death. Heavenly Father has a plan for His children to return to live with Him and it is through the principles and ordinances of Jesus Christ's Gospel that makes this possible.

How I live my faith

I attend Church every Sunday to feel of the renewing Spirit and fellowship of others. I am currently a leader in the women's organization. I help lead meetings on Sundays with a song, lesson, and prayers. We discuss the doctrines of the gospel and how we can improve our lives and especially our families. We offer advice, support, love, and service to one another. This summer 5 new babies were born in our congregation. We helped organize meals to be brought to these families in order to help with the transition of bringing a new baby home. We also visit those that are sick and offer assistance for the poor and needy by providing them with food, clothing, and other necessities. At least once a month another woman and I visit members of the women's organization and provide a spiritual message and offer assistance as needed. It is a great opportunity to get to know them better also.
