Hi I'm Stephanie

I'm a Mormon. I live in Mesa, Az. I am a wife, a mother of four children, and a full-time student.

About Me

I have been happily married for 21 years to an amazing man. Together we have been blessed with four awesome kids. I currently attend school full-time working on an associates in business degree. When I am not busy with school, housework, homework and attending activities for our kids, I really enjoy getting lost in a good book. I also like to travel with my family and experience the beautiful scenery and sites that our country has to offer.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised Mormon my entire life. I had a few years in my early adulthood where I chose to not attend church anymore. I realized that those were the years of my life where I was the least happiest. I love this church and all that it has to offer me. Being a member of this church gives me great peace, comfort, and hope for the future. I love knowing that I am a child of God, and that God loves me and knows me personally and knows my every need. I love that I was taught early on that I can turn to my Heavenly Father in prayer and that he will answer my prayers and that He knows what is best for me. I love knowing that families can be together forever through the blessings of the temple. I get joy from being with my family and I have great joy in knowing that I can be with them forever. I'm grateful that the Lord has given us scriptures and that I can turn to the word of God and gain knowledge and insight to questions that I may have. Living this gospel brings me happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each Sunday so that I can start my week off by trying to live a little better each day. I have the great opportunity to work with the youth, particularly the 12-13 year old girls. I get to teach them on Sunday and plan and join them in fun activities each week. I also live my faith by reading my scriptures and having daily prayer. I can't get through a day without prayer!
