Hi I'm Peggy Enriquez

I love the color purple, sewing counted cross stitch and new shoes. I believe chocolate should be a food group and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I worked for almost 20 years as an employment and training counselor/recruiter in both in the public and private sectors. I am a now a fun loving stay-at-home mom enjoying the blessing of raising the last of my four children a little later in life. Yes, I was the oldest woman in my lamaze class and I am probably the oldest mother in the PTO, but who cares? I don't. I try to focus on the positive. Whether I am watching HGTV, reading good books, or trying out a new recipe in the kitchen with my daughter, each day is beautiful gift from God.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a 7 generation Mormon family. However, it still took many years to confirm the Mormon Church was the right one for me. I guess some of us just have to take the scenic route in life. I attended other churches with friends and non-Mormon family members in my teen years, eventually setting all religion aside for a time. But after a divorce and other life challenges I had a yearning in my heart to have a relationship with God. I had to take an emergency trip From CA to TX so I took the Book of Mormon to read on the plane. As i read the chapters tears flowed down my face. At one point I turned to my husband and said, " I don't know how to explain my emotion. This isn't even a sad part"! Then, the sweet spirit of God spoke to my heart and confirmed to me what I was reading was true. I have never been the same since. I know with all the conviction of my soul the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and a companion book to the Bible. I know that God loves me even though I am not perfect, and I know that being a Mormon is right for me. I encourage you to find out if it is right for you too. Read the Book of Mormon and take its challenge. I promise it will change your life.

How I live my faith

Mother Teresa once said, "I am like a little pencil in his (God's) hand. That is all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do with it. The pencil has only to be allowed to be used". Whether I am feeding missionaries, babysitting for a tired military wife whose husband is serving in Afghanistan, sewing hand puppets for world wide humanitarian aid efforts, or organizing a large scale event such as a women's conference it is all the same. I live my faith each day, serving my God, by serving others.
