Hi I'm Tracy Cochran

I love to sing, sew, cook, read and play with my baby girl. I am a wife and mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

First a foremost I am a wife, secondly a mother. My little family is just beginning. My husband is currently on the long journey through medical school and I and my daughter are along for the ride. I love being a mom and seeing my little girl learn and grow. I like getting to know people and hearing their stories. I love learning new things. I love music, listening and creating it through voice and instrument. I love to sew and be crafty. I hope to someday be a big part in a community when we settle down. I hope to leave the world a better place though small and simple actions.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but never got a real sense of why I was a member until I watched and helped a friend find the truth and peace found in the knowledge of the Savior Jesus Christ. I watched as he learned and implemented the basic principles I had grown up following. I gained a real understanding of how the gospel of Jesus Christ shapes a person to be better than they could be on their own, how the Atonement can heal a person. For the first time I knew that this Church was different. That it was true. I saw it through the eyes of someone that had never seen it before. As I listened to the missionaries teach my friend I felt the Spirit anew. I started doing all the small and simple things I had been taught through primary and Sunday school. I gained my own testimony. I am a Mormon, because I know that when I follow the principles taught in it that I am truly happy.

How I live my faith

As I have grown I have continued doing the things I know make me a better person. One of those principles is to teach little children. I have always had a love for little children and have been so blessed to be asked to serve and teach them at church. It has always been inspiring to see their faces as the gospel of Christ becomes familiar to them. They remind me to do the simple things, to have faith, to love everyone, to be kind, to love learning and to keep a smile on your face. I also love to be a part of a world wide community of sisters that care for one another. That visit and serve each other, and that teach each other principles essential to return to be with our Father in Heaven. Every where I go I have felt so loved and included by the women at church.
