Hi I'm Joan

I'm a wife and a mother of two beautiful boys and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full time mom and I have two boys, a 4 year old and a 17 month old, that keep me very busy. My 4 year old is a special needs child, so we're always going to therapies and working on things at home together. He's a very happy boy and he brings me much joy. And my 17 month old is curious about everything and loves to learn and play. When I have time, I like to play violin, quilt and be active outside. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and still enjoy outdoor activities together and with our boys.

Why I am a Mormon

I live the gospel because it makes me happy. I know that I have a Savior that died for me and suffered for my sins, so that I can repent and live with Him and my Father in Heaven again. I know He knows and loves me individually just as I know He loves you. I know that families can be together forever. I love my family and I want to be with them for eternity and I know that I can if I live righteously. I know that The Book of Mormon is true and that it testifies of Christ and if I follow its teachings, I can and will be happy. I love my Savior and I will follow Him.

How I live my faith

Most recently I have taught and worked with the Young Women (12-18 year olds). It is a very rewarding calling to have. I have grown more while working with them, than in any other calling. You really have to be prepared when teaching them. They are smart and faithful and notice if you aren't giving 110%. I really strived to show them how much I loved them, by being prepared and putting in the time for them.
