Hi I'm Angela

Life-long learner enthusiast!

About Me

Life as has many stages. I'm currently in the stage of supporting my children and husband. We have three children: a son and two daughters. Our son is on the autism spectrum. So far we've been through homeschooling, four public schools, and three private schools. Hoping our most recent move to Southlake is our last! In a prior stage of life I attended BYU and graduated in communications/public relations emphasis. After BYU my husband and I worked in Seattle, then we moved to Omaha for him to attend medical school. The first few years in Omaha I worked as a communications specialist. Then babies took over my schedule. The Air Force paid for three years of medical school and we were in San Antonio his residency and payback time, including deployment, with the Air Force. Now my husband is practicing medicine in the civilian sector, and we are currently in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro. My interests include: researching, reading, writing, planning, photography, design (graphic, web, and interior), cooking, and running. As my kids grow older I look forward to going to graduate school to study social sciences, psychology, and education. As I've discovered my own talents and interests, seen my husband develop his, and have watched my children begin to discover their talents and interests I am amazed by the uniqueness of every individual.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child I was blessed to be taught I could communicate with our Heavenly Father. I remember as an eight-year-old finding myself alone in my parents bedroom one afternoon. I was thinking of baptism and decided to kneel down down on their blue carpet. In a simple prayer I asked if this was the true Church of Jesus Christ, if Joseph Smith was a prophet, and if the Book of Mormon was scripture. For me the answer was equally simple, a feeling of peace. In small increments these feelings of peace and my commitment to Christ's teaching have grown as I've nurtured my faith with prayer, fasting, gospel study, and Church attendance.

How I live my faith

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, local congregations are called "wards". Through my life I've lived in over 20 different wards, in 10 cities, and 5 states. It is wonderful to be able to find the same gospel of Jesus Christ wherever I've lived. I've enjoyed getting to serve in many different areas of the Church. From teaching adults, young children, and teenagers to planning activities for cub scouts, teenage girls, families, and women -- I've most enjoyed getting to know and love those I serve with.
