Hi I'm Marcy

I am the oldest of 10 children. I love everything about the dental field, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with three great kids. I have worked off and on in the dental field for over 25 years. I was a dental assistant early in my career, but now work as an Office Manager. I absolutely love what I do and thoroughly enjoy my job and the people I work with. I also love spending quality time with my family. Coming from a large family, our get-togethers can be quite a noisy time, but I enjoy every minute of it. I think making memories with my loved ones is just THE BEST!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, was baptized at eight years old, and have stayed true to the gospel throughout my life. This is due, in great part, to a special witness of its truthfulness that I received at a very early age. When I was 14, my parents decided I could stay the summer with my cousins, whose family lived far away in another state. One night I was feeling really homesick. The sadness of being away from my parents and siblings was almost overwhelming. I was given the small basement area to sleep, and was feeling very alone in the dark room. Everyone had gone to bed and the house was quiet. As I was getting ready for bed I began to remember the things I had been taught in Sunday School. I remembered learning that we are never alone. That we always have a Father in Heaven who is there for us. So before going to bed, I decided to pray. I got on my knees and prayed for comfort. I prayed that Heavenly Father would take away the sad feelings that I was having. It was a simple, 14-year-old prayer. Then I got into bed and laid there a while, thinking, and not feeling much better. So I decided to pray again. This time, and as I look back I remember it being, a more humble pleading prayer. Gradually, I had the most special feeling come over me, not easy to describe; a very unique feeling of warmth and overwhelming happiness and joy. At that moment I knew that my Heavenly Father and my Savior was real, and that They knew me, and loved me. I remember feeling like I had to know more. So I asked if the church that I belonged to was the true church. Again I got the same warm, happy feeling. I asked my Heavenly Father many more things that night, and spent a better part of the night in tears of thankfulness and pure joy, before peacefully falling asleep. Even as a young child, I knew that what I had experienced was important! This experience is one that I will always hold dear, and is one of the most special in my life.

How I live my faith

I have served in many callings throughout my life, and absolutely love the programs of the church, and that I can participate in them. I am currently serving as a teacher to the 4-yr-old children. They are so much fun and I look forward to hearing their sweet little comments each week in Primary. I am also a visiting teacher, which means I am given an assignment, and am able to get to know and care for the needs of a few of the sisters in my ward family. This is such a special blessing to me, because it gives me the opportunity to feel very close to those sisters that I visit with and care for. I love that no matter where I go, anywhere in the world, the teachings of the Gospel are the same, and there is a ward family to support and uplift me... and it really feels like family to me! We have moved many times, and I found this to be true in every place we've ever been!
