Hi I'm Sally Dees

I'm a wife and a mother of 3, I was born in the U.S.A, I spent almost 5 years of my youth in Chile, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got married almost 12 years ago and I have 3 kids. My kids are the best, there's Brandon almost age 10, Ashly age 6 and David age 3. My husband, he's also a great guy! I was born and raised till the age of 8 in Yuma, Arizona. I then had the experience of living in Santiago, Chile for almost a total of 5 years. My mom is from there. I moved back to Arizona from Chile at the age of 12. I had the wonderful opportunity of growing up close to my dads family. They are the funnest family! We all live in close proximities to eachother. I graduated from high school and went to a few years of college. I got married a few years later in the Mesa, AZ temple. My husband went to BYU-I (the best University on the face of the planet)! This was my first time moving away with NO family. It was tough, but I think there was a lot of good things I learned by doing this. Then my husband got hired with Seminaries and Institutes. I feel this is the best job a husband could have. I love reading and writing. I think my favorite thing to do is go on dates with my husband. I'm pretty laid back, so I think dinner and a movie is the way to go! I have aspirations to write books someday and go on a lot of vacations. I above all I dream of my kids all going on successful missions, college, and getting married in the temple. I love friends,and reading good books! I love nature and going on walks in the beautiful Arizona winter time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've always believed in the church. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know Jesus Christ atoned for all of human frailties and sins. I love knowing that families can be sealed forever, and that God loves each of His children and we are all important to him. The Book of Mormon and Bible are Gods gift to mankind to help us find direction and happiness in this life. I know that we have a prophet today to help us and guide us. His name is Thomas S. Monson. Being a Mormon makes me happy!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to raise my kids to live good lives by teaching them to live the Ten Commandments through word and example. I go to church. I was a wolf den leader for the boy scouts. I like visiting with different women I go to church with, I feel like we are all good friends. I tell my kids to be friendly to everyone, and I definitely tell them to have good standards at all times, and also to respect other peoples beliefs. I believe that each day we can try harder and do better, and no one is perfect and we need to always improve.
