Hi I'm Audra

I'm a full time online student. I'm a computer guru. I love power tools. I'm a military wife and mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full time online student. My goal is to be an ethical "white glove" hacker and someday work for the military in Computer forensics. I was born on an Air Force military base and spent the first part of my life traveling America and Europe. Now I am married to a military man and have a deep respect for what my Mother and Father went through. We have three beautiful kids that are under five. My oldest seems to know just as much about computers as I do. I have a passion for painting on walls. I love white walls, they are a free canvas. I learned how to sheet rock and mud when I was a teenager, so making walls isn't a problem either. The most dangerous thing my husband does is leave me home with power tools. I love refurbishing old houses and uncovering the details our ancestors left behind. Being a Mormon goes hand in hand with being a builder and refurbisher. I find beauty in everything. I'm kind of quirky, I love being on the move, and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I didn't admit that I had a testimony of the church until I had a family of my own. I am a Mormon because it makes me into a better person. It makes me move forward on a path the builds, not destroys. I gives me the knowledge of who I am, and who the people around me are. It gives me a greater capacity to love. Most importantly, I am a Mormon because this is Christ's fully restored church. Whenever a question comes up, there is an answer. I know that Christ needs me to help spread joy and the fantastic news of His gospel. He taught me how to consistently be happy, no matter where I am or what circumstances I may be in. Being a Mormon gives me strength that I could not muster on my own.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a full time Mother and Wife. Kids are definitely an adventure! I was terrified of being a mother when I had my first. It took time for me to realize that I had a great responsibility to raise this next generation in the strength and comfort of the Gospel. Taking them to church, personally teaching them in Family Home Evening, and saying bedtime prayers is so important to them and to me. I'm not very loud. I try to listen for the promptings of the Holy Spirit in my home. I do this by beautifying my home and creating an atmosphere of reverence. It's surprising, but we have more fun together when the Spirit is in our home. It helps me in my schooling and my parenting. It gives me patience when schedules suddenly change or plumbing suddenly breaks. My Faith is my life and I could not be happier.
