Hi I'm Nanci

I'm a Mormon. I am a mother in Peoria,AZ. I have 4 active children and a wonderful husband who works tirelessly for our family.

About Me

I was blessed to be raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I couldn't imagine living any other way. I have seen blessings come into my life especially during times of grief and tribulation. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me. I have been faced with great trial in my life. Children did not come easy for me. I spent many many years suffering through infertility treatments and subsequent dissappointments. Through his grace, mercy and his own timing, I have been blessed with four beautiful, healthy and valiant children. I am a stay at home mother. I do not take that description lightly. I LOVE to be home. It is my favorite place to be. It is my refuge from the storm of life. I have been married to my sweet husband for 18 years. I am so grateful that I get to walk down the path of life with him. I was born and raised here in Arizona. I dream of living somewhere with four seasons, but this is home and where I will always live.

Why I am a Mormon

It is such a difficult world to live in. Too many of us suffer from not knowing what voice to listen to or what direction to take. The gospel gives me great direction and purpose. I know that my Savior lives. I know that I have a Father who knows my name and loves me. There are many days when the burdens feel too heavy to carry. It is during these times that I can lean on a loving Heavenly Father who knows my needs better than I do. Through the gift of the Holy Ghost confirmed upon me at the age of eight, I can receive personal revalation that guides me through this life. I am grateful for the promises I made to my Father in Heaven and in turn the promises he gives to me. These are my covenants and I hold onto them for dear life. I know that I have an eternal family because my husband and I chose to marry in the Lord's holy temple. That promise brings me great joy. I know that there is a wonderful life waiting for me after this life on earth. I know that my Savior died on the cross for me and that he was resurrected on the third day. I know that a living prophet speaks again on earth. It is because of this knowledge that I strive to live the gospel plan each day. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day as I care for my family and serve in my church. I love to share the gospel with those that I come across. I hope that through my example others will seek to know what makes me so happy. I have many oppurtunities to serve my fellow brothers and sisters. I strive each day to read in my scriptures, have personal and family prayer and live up to the promises I have made with my Savior.
