Hi I'm Diane

A married mom of three, I am passionate about immigration rights, natural childbirth, and breastfeeding education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have been married for two years, and we have a blended family. I was married previously and had two children; we now have a one year old baby with another one on the way. I am passionate about immigration rights and treating everyone with love and compassion, the way our Savior showed us. I am also passionate about natural childbirth and breastfeeding education. I am studying to be a doula so I can help other women trust their bodies and be courageous and powerful during birth, dispelling fear. Our Heavenly Father created women's bodies perfectly and we can reclaim our birth power when we are supported and educated. I also volunteer with a few organizations to help moms breastfeed their babies. I believe that human milk is another gift from our Heavenly Father, and moms and babies deserve the best chance possible at establishing a positive, successful breastfeeding relationship.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church, and it took me a long time to find my place in the Gospel. I always knew the Church was true, but it was hard for me to let go of pride and worldly attitudes so that I could fully understand and live the Gospel. When I hit my twenties, I knew I wanted to be a full member of the Church. I missed the presence of my Savior in my life. When I was pregnant with my first child, my father questioned what I was going to teach my child about religion. I thought hard about it, and I knew that if I didn't teach my child about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, that there was a good chance no one would. I couldn't imagine my son living in darkness, and I knew I needed to come home. It took a long, long time and a lot of fellowshipping on the part of my ward members, but I became an active member of the Church. I am so grateful for the opportunity to come back, to raise my children to know our Heavenly Father and our Savior. I am grateful to have met my husband and for us to be married in the Temple for all eternity. I am infinitely more happy living the Gospel, knowing where I am and where I am going. The Gospel brings me peace and joy and has blessed the lives of my family and me.

How I live my faith

I currently serve with the cub scouts for our area. I help the boys learn how to be good citizens and build their moral character.
