Hi I'm Martha

I live in Arizona. I'm a wife, mother, and dental hygienist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time wife and mother who loves the simple joys of organizing a closet, playing games with my family, trying out a new recipe, and curling up with a good book. I also work as a dental hygienist part-time. I get to treat and help patients and educate them about their oral health.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised a member of the LDS church all my life and was taught by amazing parents to have a strong devotion to Jesus Christ. But it wasn't until I was a teenager that I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover and learned for myself that the restored gospel is true. Through the power of the Holy Ghost, I learned that Jesus Christ was my Savior and Redeemer and that Joseph Smith was truly a prophet of God and devoted his life to returning the Savior's gospel to the earth again. It is this witness and answer to prayers that keeps me in this faith and gives me a sure & strong foundation in life.

How I live my faith

Today I try to live my devotion by being actively involved in attending church meetings, serving and visiting others in need, and working closely with the young children in our congregation by teaching them to sing praises to Jesus Christ. I also am strongly devoted to teaching my own family good habits so they can be happy in this life despite the challenges they may face.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

No, we are free to choose whichever political party we feel is best. However, we are encouraged to research political stances and issues to educate ourselves. We can then vote & support those whose agendas are closest to the teachings of God and keeping our country free and strong. We are also encouraged to be good citizens and uphold the laws of the land.
