Hi I'm Audrey

I was born in the heartland of America (Missouri). I love to teach youth how to Ballroom Dance. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a sister to 11 siblings, a wife to a great guy who works hard to provide, and a mother of 6 children. I love to be with my family. We live a simple life, but it is full of laughter, tears, and a little bit of craziness. :) I teach Ballroom and sometimes choreograph commuinty plays in the area. I love serving the youth. I have a deep love for the handicap. I do Respite care and take care of my handicap sister who has helped mold and shape me to the person I am today. My family has been affected by the economy and my husband works hard to provide. I have been blessed to be able to find a way to earn a little extra by doing a little daycare in my home and do some respite care for my sister. This trial has made my marriage and family stronger.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight year old by my dad. I have been taught by patient parents the scriptures and how to apply them in my life. I was taught the standards early on and the consequences that come from the choices I make. I have learned that once you have a testimony DOESN'T mean you always have it. I have been tested by my peers and the world many times. I study and pray for what is right all the time. It helps keep my testimony healthy, and myself and family life happier. When I was young, I went to church NOT because I had to but because I wanted to. My friends and leaders had a big part in that. Today, I try to be a good leader to the youth in my area and a good example of righteous living in my neigborhood and community.

How I live my faith

I serve the 12 & 13 year old young women in my ward. I teach them lessons on Sunday that can help them get through their daily lives. And during the week we meet again for a fun activity. The activities help the girls grow spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. The girls are full of life. They are just like every 12 & 13 year old. They like boys and music and such. But most importantly they want to be accepted by their peers. They are learning quickly that every choice they make comes with a consequence (good or bad). They are made fun of because they choose to be modest and keep the word of wisdom that is taught in the Bible. They know that being human means sometimes making mistakes. But they also know that because they have mightly souls they can learn to control their desires and appetites. They are strong and courageous young women! Once a month I go with another friend to visit a couple women in my church in their homes. I am called their Visiting Teacher. It is a responsibility I recieve, and I take it very seriously. On our visits we ask them how they are doing. We talk about what they are going through and if they need help with anything. We also teach them a little lesson that helps them be a stronger individual. Sometimes they are sick or are in need of some extra help. At that time I help by preparing a meal or take care of little ones if needed or help in whatever way I can. I feel like an instrument in God's hands when I do this and it makes me feel loved and needed not only by the women, but by the Savior. My husband also serves the elderly, widows, and divorcees in my ward. This requires him to be away from family at times. With all these responsibilities comes a lot of sacrifices. But I also know that these responsibilities have helped my family tremendously. My husband is a greater man because of this service.
