Hi I'm Stacey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a great man who strives so hard to be a good provider for our family. I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls and a wonderful step daughter. I love each of them so much. I was recently blessed to receive a new job that will allow me to be home more for my children. As a family, we enjoy days on the lake, camping and anything that we can do together as a family. I recently took up glass painting which I found to be fun and great gift ideas.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. After I graduated high school and started life on my own I realized I had relied on the testimony and example of my parents. I truly didn't have the full understanding of the church and it's teachings. I had always felt in my heart the gospel was true and what I had been taught all my life was what our Heavenly Father wanted me to know. But when it came down to it I didn't have the full "light" of the gospel and a complete understanding for myself. So I decided it was time to read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover and to apply it to my life and my current situation of being on my own and needing to know for myself. It wasn't too long into reading the Book of Mormon that I knew without a doubt the gospel was true. We do have living prophets here on this earth and they do lead and guide us today. Life is not easy and we all have trials, but during these trials I always think back on that time I gained my understanding on my own and how it made me feel and I know my Heavenly Father loves me and is always there for me. I see a difference when I follow the gospel and live according to our faith. When I do this I always see so many blessings. They may not be big things, but I know it is because I am being watched over and guided in the right direction. When I chose not to follow Heavenly Father's teachings I see my struggles become more and more harder to deal with and I become more and more unhappy. I know the gospel is true.. Joseph Smith was a prophet and we do have living prophets on this earth today to guide us as there has always been.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth. Working with these young girls the past 2 years has been a true blessing for me. I see how each of them struggle with peer pressure, their families and school. As I spend time with them on Sunday's and on our weekly activity night, I have come to realize what special daughters of our Heavenly Father they truly are. They are our future leaders and I am blessed to be able to teach them what I know and how they can be great Mothers, Sisters and missionaries.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a true prophet of our time. He was led by our Heavenly Father to teach the "fullness" of the gospel. I served a mission in Ohio where Joseph spent time teaching the gospel, building a temple. There is where I came to know for myself that he was a true prophet. Show more Show less
