Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a Mom. I love Math and tutoring. I love sewing and songwriting. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've spent most of my life in the bay area in California but I've also lived in Bangkok, Thailand and Singapore. Both my husband and I have physics degrees and I am passionate about math and about teaching! We have one infant son who absolutely hates peas and loves grabbing my hair. He's the most awesome thing I've ever seen. I love to be creative and I do many things to that end. I love to sew, knit, write songs, decorate and cook delicious meals!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon not because my parents were Mormons and their parents were Mormons but because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I'm a Mormon because it is in this church that I have developed a close relationship with my savior Jesus Christ and it is by following His teachings that I've found happiness and peace. I'm a Mormon because we believe that families are eternal and my family is the most important thing to me in the whole world. I'm a Mormon because we are led by a prophet today, just as people were in ancient times. I'm a Mormon because I know Joseph Smith saw a vision of God the Father and Jesus Christ in answer to his prayer. I'm a Mormon because the people of this church, though flawed as we all are, help me to see my Savior more clearly, to drink from His words more deeply and to feel His love more purely.

How I live my faith

I teach the Gospel Doctrine class in my local ward once a month. I absolutely love this calling! I love to teach more than just about anything and I learn so much by preparing the lessons and hearing what everyone in church has to say when they discuss the principles being taught. I visit teach two ladies in our ward who are wonderful and I spend a lot of time talking to other young Moms like me about being a mother and learning to juggle life as a wife, mother, and disciple of Christ.
