Hi I'm Nancy

I've been a hair stylist for over 30 years, but the career I love is being a wife, mother and homemaker! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life and take delight in many things around me! I'm married to a wonderful man who also happens to be my best friend! I love spending time having fun with my family. My three children and two children-in-law are great blessings to me. I'm so grateful for my close relationship with each of them! I feel very blessed to be the grandmother of two precious grandchildren, who bring great joy to my life! I can often be found outside in the garden, caring for my rose bushes and happily trimming the shrubs and trees. I enjoy painting and decorating rooms in my home, and my married children often recruit me to help them paint their homes, too! I learned to sew at age 12, and I still love it! I have fun creating quilts, tablecloths and curtains, as well as clothing. Music is a very important part of my life - I've loved singing ever since I was a little girl, and I enjoy teaching uplifting songs to children and teenagers! Because my parents and brothers have faced many health problems, good health and fitness are important to me. I eat a very nutritious diet and exercise every day except Sunday. I really enjoy smiling at people wherever I go - I often make friends with bank tellers, store cashiers, and postal workers! I have a blog where I post many photos of my family and our fun activities, and where I am known by my nickname, Nancy Face!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know beyond any doubt that this church is the true gospel of Jesus Christ upon the earth. I know it because the Holy Ghost has given me this witness in my heart. It is a powerful and beautiful feeling, and it is unmistakable. I didn't receive this witness without effort on my part. I have studied and learned about my Savior Jesus Christ, and I have done my best to keep His commandments. I have felt the sweet comfort of forgiveness as I have prayed and repented of my sins. On many occasions I have felt the overwhelming love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for me. They know me individually and they care about the things that matter to me - of this I am certain. I'm a Mormon because I know that The Book of Mormon is true. I have read it many times, and as soon as I finish, I can't wait to start reading it again! The main reason for this is because of how it makes me feel. I can be reading a passage and suddenly come across something that touches my heart, and I once again feel the Holy Ghost testifying to me of the truthfulness of what I am reading. It is so powerful and profound that my heart swells within me and tears of joy come to my eyes. I'm a Mormon because my family is everything to me! I married my husband Kris in the holy temple, not only for this mortal life, but for all eternity. Through this great blessing, we can be together forever after we die, and our precious children and grandchildren can be with us, too!

How I live my faith

I live my faith in almost every aspect of my life - it's so much more than just attending church on Sunday! I try to use everyday situations to teach gospel principles to my children through my words and actions. Sometimes they think I'm a bit preachy, but hey! It's my responsibility as their mom and as a follower of Jesus Christ. I always try to be honest and show integrity in my dealings with others. Often cashiers make mistakes and charge me less than I owe at a store or even my favorite frozen yogurt place, and I always tell them kindly so that they can fix their mistake. If I don't notice the mistake until I leave, I make sure and tell them the next time I visit the store. Sometimes the employees don't seem to care one bit, but most of the time it makes them very happy. More importantly, I know it makes Heavenly Father happy. I worked in a hair salon for 30 years. I was full-time until I became a mom, then I went to part-time, and gradually cut my hours until I quit. I still do haircuts and coloring in my home for a few very dear friends who are not of my faith. I don't push my religion on them, but I speak openly of my beliefs and listen to theirs. I hope I am being a good example to them.
