Hi I'm Heather

I'm a Mormon. I'm a wife, mother, sister and therapist. I have 3 amazing children. I'm a sports,dance,music,theater enthusiast!

About Me

After a brief stage career, I was married to my amazing husband and settled down to have a family. I love dance, theater, and choreography but I love my family too. Early in life, I realized I could not travel around dancing for very long and have a family too. I am so grateful for those experiences early on, for they make me who I am today. I love my family. I am a licensed mental health therapist and enjoy helping people of all ages find happiness and success in their lives through a variety of therapeutic modalities, working in schools and privately. I also use ABA therapy with kids who have autism, which is extremely rewarding! I still teach dance, choreograph, train an coach and direct when I can. I love kickboxing, soccer, basketball, hiking( outdoors), skiing and dance. I love to help and guide others to becoming healthy and the best that they can be! I love to study the scriptures and good books that guide me through life. I love to write about experiences that I have learned from and identify with. I love to learn and understand people and cultures. I become very curious and intrigued by them. Life is so inspiring!

Why I am a Mormon

Early on in my teenage years I pondered about life and why I was here on earth. It didn't take me long to realize through prayer and scripture study that the church was true. But I had to take action and find out for myself. The spirit amazes me and touches all of us in different ways. When we recognize when the lord is speaking right to us through the spirit, we acknowledge his hand in our lives. I did this early as a teenager after reading the Book of Mormon and taking upon myself Moroni's promise Moroni 10:4-5 "....if ye shall ask with sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." Today the Holy ghost resignates in my heart daily. I can identify with the prophets of old in the Bible and the Book of Mormon when I read and listen to today's prophets , teachers, leaders. I find happiness in knowing the savior loves me and knows me just like he knows you.His atoning sacrifice is a gift to us from our father in heaven, my life is a gift to him. I can't imagine life with out the sweetness of the gospels message. My life would be totally different. Being mormon is every bit a part of who I am in persona and disposition. I would encourage you to take action on your spirtuality and be open to feeling the spirit of christ in your daily life, you will feel true happiness.

How I live my faith

I try me best.....we all are not perfect, but the lord knows our intentions, the lord loves us in-spite of what we do, he wants us to be happy, we just need to try.Everyday I try my best as a wife, mother, sister, therapist and in my church service. I have had many opportunities to serve in the church I have leaded and guided many women, children and teens grow closer to Christ as other members of the church have served me. Serving in the church is such a great blessing and opportunity. I have learned so much about people and myself from volunteering service to the needs of others in the church, it brings me great happiness. I love serving the lord through church service. The service that is given is not only teaching the gospel, there is activities, camps, luncheons, dinners etc. I know service and charity is the pure love of Christ and I try to live my life through Christs example. Life can be challenging the Lord is shaping us into the person he wants us to be. We should be grateful for our challenges and trials in life that means he is entrusting us with more growth. I live my faith with my family, a family that prays together stays together! So we pray, read, play and create as many memories with our children as we can daily. Every Sunday we partake of the sacrament to remember our Savior. My husband and I try to consistently go the temple, this reminds us that families can be together forever through the eternities. Reminds us of our commitments, promises we have made with the Savior and our Father in Heaven. I try to keep an eternal perspective about things. I try to act on the spirit when I am prompted and inspired to do so.
