Hi I'm Zoe

I am going to school to become an interpreter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one of thirteen children. At age five my parents were divorced, both have been remarried since. Because of my spilt family I now have a grand total of six brothers and six sisters. I have real/full siblings, step siblings, half siblings, and adopted siblings. I was born into the church and have always made it apart of who I am. In high school I played badminton, ran track, pole vaulted, attended Cosmetology school, and spent countless hours with friends. I graduated from high school with my Cosmetology License and a scholarship to pole vault at a local college. Back in 2006, I was standing in the lunch line at a church summer camp (EFY) when the most ridiculously handsome boy I had ever seen walked up and started talking to me. However, I was shy and we hardly spoke again. That is until after he returned home from his mission. In March of 2010 we went on our first date, and less than a year later we were married for time and all eternity in the Mesa Arizona Temple. My husband and I are die hard sports fans and love anything to do with our home state. We are both full time students; I am in the Interpreter Preparation Program to become an ASL/English Interpreter. I love cleaning, blogging, photography, camping, decorating, the outdoors, and cooking. I can’t wait to be a mommy! I love my husband, my family, and the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have chosen to be. I was lucky enough to be born into the church and have loving parents who have always been an amazing example to me. However, this is not what makes me a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I have prayed to my Heavenly Father to know, for myself, if the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints is in fact the true and living church. On several occasions I have fallen to my knees in prayer, and every time I have felt the love of my Heavenly Father comfort and confirm this gospels truth. I know that this church is true and that my Heavenly Father knows and loves me. We have a living prophet on the earth today, and he reveals to us what the Lord would have us do. I am grateful for the priesthood, and that power it has. I am confirmed with the knowledge that I am sealed to my family for time and all eternity. Jesus Christ bled for my sins in the Garden of Gethsemane; He was placed on Calvary’s hill to die for you and me. It is through His death and His atonement that all of us can live with our Lord and Savior once again. I know this because the power of the Holy Ghost has revealed its truths to me. The Savior knows me individually and He knows exactly what I have been through in my life, because He has lived through it as well. I try to live worthy so that I will be able to live with my Heavenly Father and Savior again. The gospel has been restored in its fullness to the earth. The Book of Mormon is another testament of the living Christ. It is because of these truths that I am proud to call myself a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My husband and I attend our church meetings every Sunday. I dress modestly so others will see me for who I am, and not what the world wants to make of me. My husband and I have been called to teach the youth, particularly the nine year olds, in our ward. We attend the temple where ever and whenever time permits. At night before we lay down to sleep, we kneel together in prayer. The scriptures play a huge role in my life; I have had many truths manifested to me while reading their words. Another way I live my faith is by following the living prophet. I trust in the priesthood power and am grateful for its many blessings. Everywhere I go I make my standards known. I share my testimony with anyone who is willing to listen!
