Hi I'm Valerie.

I love hiking, backpacking, traveling. I had the blessing of serving as a missionary in beautiful Ireland.

About Me

I have lived in, and visited, some amazing places and met many beautiful people. I work for a busy Sports Medicine practice. I am a Cub Scout Leader. I have a beautiful daughter. I am most happy when I am hiking , kayaking or road tripping.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of goodly parents who loved our Father in Heaven and taught His ways. When I was 18, my lovely father was killed in line of duty and I was forced to lean on my own understanding of Heavenly Fathers plans for me. I believe with all my heart that prayers are heard and answered. We are loved beyond measure by our Heavenly family, and helped through this life in good times, and bad, by the power of the Holy Ghost. Knowing that we will live with a loving Heavenly Father again, after this life is over, brings me peace and helps me seek what is truly important.

How I live my faith

I have been through some very tough trials. At times, I am left alone to grow and stretch and feel the pain. As I have stayed faithful to the teachings of the scriptures and to the trust my Father in Heaven has in me, I have been blessed with peace and healing. I pray, and expect answers to my prayers. I share these feelings so that others won't feel alone or afraid. It is marvelous to feel that eternal, immense love and care. Seek it!
