Hi I'm Sonia Garner

Enjoys giving away smiles, hugs, and kisses to family & loved ones. I’m a Texan through and through, but I love living in Arizona.

About Me

Love sharing time with family and friends by just chilling at home or shopping for deals. I enjoy hitting the gym and pampering myself at the spa. I prefer to travel by car then airplane, because I get to enjoy nature. I'll camp when I have a few luxuries with me like electricity and an air mattress! As for education after High School I completed my associates in one year and five weeks, and then took six years off before I decided to complete my bachelor’s degree. Immediately following college I pursued my career and find enjoyment in serving the medically disabled population. Sharing my life with someone is still crazy to me but after 10 years of marriage we hope to add some sweet spirits into our home.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, I know my efforts in following; the teaching of this gospel brings peace and clarity into my life. I am loved by an earthly family and heavenly parents, all whom have provided me with the knowledge, energy and tools to accomplish this life and stay eternally focused. And I am fortunate to have shared 10 years with a husband who understands and comforts my personality. We hope to welcome children into our home, through birth or adoption.

How I live my faith

My faith is exercised all the time but I am also the first one to admit I have lots of shortcomings. We are not perfect but I know that we should always strive to be better and do better. Throughout the years I’ve provided church service with children and youth in teaching Sunday lessons, care giving, and shared in weekday activities that build upon righteous principles. Some of the more fun and active services encompassed managing a volleyball season, helped girls orientate to the outdoors in camping. And on very rare occasions I have been asked to speak to the congregation on selected topics. This is something most people don’t feel comfortable doing, and I fall into that category, but it’s a very common practice for members to speak. In my daily life my husband and I strive to regularly read and ponder the scriptures. Sometime together though most of the time apart. We pray often and live by high standards that encourage us to always remember that our lives have meaning, purpose and value. I am grateful that my husband lives his life in such a way that he treasures his priesthood authority. All these variables make my home more peaceful and loving. A complete contrast to my childhood home. I look forward to sharing this home with my future family. I know eternal principles will be taught and practiced in my home.
