Hi I'm Diana

I'm a mom to 5 amazing boys and a wife to a wonderful man. I love to read and shop. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the Midwest all my life except for two years when I attended an LDS college in Idaho. When I was finished and moved home I met my husband and was married shortly after. I have always loved kids and ever since I can remember I wanted to be a mother. We have been blessed with five boys. The boys keep me busy but I can always find time to do some of the things I love, shopping and reading. I work very minimal part time hours at two different jobs. I take care of kids at the local YMCA and do a few hours at a baby/toddler retail store. I love being around people. I have been blessed with many friends from all the different parts of my life. I love nothing more than reconnecting with people. I am lucky to have an amazing supportive family and there is nothing better than making memories with the people I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the church. Growing up I never doubted the things that I was taught at church or at home. I knew the things that were being said were true. I felt it. I never felt a need to rebel or challenge things. I had thought that if I did all the things I was taught that I would live a nice easy life. It wasn't until I was about to deliver our second child, our daughter, that all the things I had been taught were going to be tested. While in labor, our daughters heart rate fell dangerously low and I was rushed in for an emergency C-section. I was put under general anesthesia and our daughter was born. Unfortunately she only lived for 2 hours. She was perfect, both physically and spiritually. I had done everything that I thought I needed to do to ensure a life of ease. I had no idea how wrong I was. After the death of our daughter I remember falling to my knees in prayer. I was in need of some major peace. Because of the things that I was taught I knew that I could find comfort in the one person who knew exactly how I felt. In those moments of complete despair, my Heavenly Father covered me with the peace of the Holy Ghost. I knew that our daughter was okay. I knew that because of the doctrine of eternal families she would always be a part of our family. She was not lost, she was waiting of us. She touched many in her short life and continues to as I share her story with others.. I love the fact that because I am a member of Jesus Christ's church that my family is united for eternity. I realized that by following the commandments it wouldn't prevent me from having trials but by following the commandments and doing what I was supposed to would help me deal with the trials I was given. People say God won't give your more than you can handle but really He won't give you more than you can handle with His help.

How I live my faith

I have always loved being with children and taking care of them. I have worked with the cub scouts and with the Children’s program at church (Primary). I loved being able to teach them all every month about Jesus Christ. Children amaze me with the things they understand. Even though I was teaching them, they would teach me. They teach how to forgive and how to trust. I am now serving as a counselor over the Primary in our area. I help with organizing the Cub scout programs in each congregation. I love the scouting program and what it can teach our boys. It helps them become leaders and how to be honest, trustworthy, loyal, brave, kind...ect. All the things you would want in a husband, father or co-worker. I am also a visiting teacher. That is where I get to visit a few women from church every month. I love being able to get to know those women who I might not normally. We are all different but we have one thing in common, we love our Heavenly Father. Because of that we are united to create stronger families, homes, marriages and communities.
