Hi I'm Tracy

I'm a CEO (of the home), a boo-boo fixer, a educator, a volunteer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I am a wife and a mother of three beautiful kiddos. But for some reason, that wasn't enough. Some of us are better mothers when we are not exposed to our kiddos 24/7. I realized I was one of those women. So, after three years of being a stay-at-home mom, I entered the workforce finally taking advantage of that college degree I earned so many years ago. I love my life and feel my family is truly blessed for the experiences we encounter each and everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born and raised a mormon, it was always a given that this was what I was supposed to do. When I turned 21, I wasn't so sure anymore that this was the path I wanted to take. My life began to spiral out of control. I was doing things that I knew my parents, friends and even my Heavenly Father would be ashamed of, but that didn't matter. Several years later, I began to have significant health problems. I was passed on from one doctor to another with no diagnosis and no end in sight. I finally received a diagnosis that was going to change my life forever..."Churg-Strauss Vasculitic Syndrome". This disease causes many ups and downs. At one point in my treatment I had what the medical community call a severe exacerbation. I remember that day vividly. I had just seen a specialist, she had left the room for a moment to make some additional phone calls to other providers to coordinate my care. I guess she didn't realize that the door was still partially open. I heard the words "she will be lucky to see Monday morning"; those simple but strong words caused my short life to flash before my eyes. Was I ready to meet my God? Was I living my life in the way and manner I should be? Of course not, I knew that for sure. I began to pray in those silent moments after my visit with this doctor. I begged and prayed that I would be given another chance to make my life better, use it to do good and help those in need. I read the Book of Mormon for the first time that night and knew the gospel of Jesus Christ was true. I knew if I put my faith and trust in God, it would all turn out okay. That was 10 years ago, while my life is not as cookie cutter as I would like, I know that with God all things are possible if we just open that door and let him in.

How I live my faith

One of the greatest examples of the Savior, Jesus Christ was his willingness to serve others. That I believe is the best way to stay connected to what is really important in a world that is plagued with so much negativity and bad influences. I am active in the community with various volunteer projects and organizations. I love to get my hands dirty and get down to the nitty gritty. When I am serving others, I feel my Savior the most.
