Hi I'm Loretta

I was born and raised in Mesa, AZ. I am the youngest of nine kids. I would love to travel the world someday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love doing anything outdoors. I am really into hiking and running and am starting to pick up cycling as well. I hike the Grand Canyon every summer with my family and look forward to it every year. I have run a couple of half marathons and competed in a couple of triathlons but hope to run my first full marathon this year. I live in Arizona with my husband and our two little dogs we rescued from the pound. I enjoy baking and am learning to cook more and more everyday. I like living in Arizona but take any opportunity I can to get away and travel. I don't have any kids of my own yet but, in the meantime, I try to play the role of favorite aunt.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that if I live to my fullest potential and follow the teachings of the gospel, I will return to live with my Savior again. I know that my Heavenly Father knows me and is always there for me in my hardest moments. I have felt the spirit many different times in my life and know this is the true church. I believe that our Savior suffered for our sins to give us the opportunity to return to live with Him. I am a mormon because I want to be with my family forever in this life and the next. I am blessed to be sealed to my best friend and know that through this gospel, I can be with him and our future family through all eternity. That is why I am mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing service and trying to help others in need. I am a cub scout leader with the nine year old boys. The boys are full of energy but love learning the basic skills of everyday life and most importantly, learning to help others. I attend my church meetings every sunday to be enriched by the teachings of the spirit and to partake of the sacrament. I live my faith by trying to be a good example to others and staying true to my beliefs.
