Hi I'm Beth

I'm a fifth generation Arizonan. I am the mom to five kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've always been fascinated with other places in the world. I graduated with a degree in International Relations and an emphasis in the Russian language. I love to travel whenever I get the opportunity. I am married to a good old Idaho boy and am the mother to five children. I enjoy serving in my community, most specifically at my children's schools.

Why I am a Mormon

I love how so much of the Gospel teaches us with the perspective of families. I understand what its like to be a parent and to have love for my children, so I can apply that to my relationship with my Father in Heaven. I know that He is there watching over me and wants me to return home to Him. When I am living my life as I should I can feel His guidance and His watchful care over me. Life isn't without its trials, but after overcoming these trials with strength from my Father in Heaven, I am able to see the wonderful growth I have made and grow closer to Him. My family has been in the Church for several generations and I was raised in this Church. I am touched by the sacrifices that were made by my ancestors so that they could practice this religion and by so doing I have been able to have it in my life today many years later. It gives me direction and hope and I am so grateful for it.

How I live my faith

I really like to "enjoy the journey" and try to plan lots of ways so that my family and others can have fun and make happy memories. I spend a lot of time planning events to promote family involvement at our school. I like to create traditions at our school that enable our families to spend quality time together. My goal is to create an opportunity for families to have fun in a safe environment with minimal cost and if we can help the school out in the process, that's even better! Recently one of my sons began cub scouts and I was asked to serve as the cubmaster for the pack. Not having any scouting experience at all, I nervously agreed. It has been fun learning more about the program and to spend more time with my son. I have enjoyed getting to know the boys in the program and motivating them to make goals and achieve them.
