Hi I'm Bianca

I am a professional harpist, an entrepreneur, a marathon runner, a mother of 4 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 4, a harpist, a business owner and a runner. I started playing the harp at age 6 and continued through college. While I am considered a professional harpist, I find the most joy in teaching. I love teaching and I especially love teaching children. I am also own a small business in which I am able to meet diverse people from all over my state. To keep myself level headed, I love to run. The joy in my running is found in the journey. It has never been about speed but about the experience I have on long distance runs with dear friends. I've run two marathons and can pretty much compare any difficult situation in life to running a marathon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith but I consider myself a convert. At 18 I left my home and moved to a liberal college in the Northwest. I lived in a very diverse, co-ed dorm where I found my core beliefs tested every day. One evening, at a party, my religion became the topic of dicussion. I had several, very bright people ask me detailed questions about my religion and found that I didn't have the answers. I knew that I felt peace in my decision to be a Mormon, but didn't really know why. Following that party, the next month of my life was dedicated to finding out for myself if what I believed was really true. I read the Book The Mormon. I pondered it and the night I finished, I knelt beside my bed and offered a sincere and heartfelt prayer asking if what I had read was indeed true. I felt that same peace as I always had, except this time the peace was followed with conviction. From that time forward, I have always embraced the opportunity to speak to others about what I believe. I cannot imagine a life without knowing what I know. Three years after that experience, I was able to serve a mission in an Asian country.

How I live my faith

I know that my home is one of the most sacred places on earth and work very hard to protect it. Like the palaces in China, I keep a lion at my door to remind me of this obligation. I believe that the greatest impact that I will have on this earth is in how I raise my children. I am dedicated to helping them become responsible, respectful, chartiable, intelligent and spiritual human beings. I feel fortunate to work in a leadership role with the children in my church and feel that there is nothing more rewarding to me than being able to connect with young people.
