Hi I'm Andra

I'm a single mom and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Colorado but my father had passed away when my mother was pregant with me. She remarried when I was 2 and we moved to Utah. We moved to Arizona when I was5 and I have lived there since.  I grew up in a small community and have really loved it. I have done several jobs over the years; visual display, retail management, waitressing, banking, and secretarial. Recently, I became a mom to a sweet baby boy and that by far is my favorite "job". I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family, cooking, and thrifting.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church for 11 years now. I grew up in a home where I was taught being a Mormon was wrong. We did attend church regularly and were taught about Jesus and the power of prayer. The town I grew up in had a lot of Mormons in it so, I had lots of friends in the LDS church. I attended many of their youth activities or was invited over for family night with my LDS friends. I had attended many different churches growing up but none really seemed to fit. I moved away from home to the city after high school and decided it was time to return to my small community after 9 years. I started thinking about my faith and started asking my good friend about her Mormon faith. She asked if I would like to meet with some missionaries to answer questions. I agreed. After our first meeting the missionaries asked me to really pray with faith to be guided. That night I prayed about my life and the church. I knew what decision I needed to make and when the missionaries came the next day I agreed to be baptised. My family was not very happy with my choice but stll love me. I have many friends in the church that are like family to me and help me daily.

How I live my faith

I have done many different jobs in the church. My favorite is working with the children. There is nothing like childlike faith and how it can strengthen yours. I also enjoying getting to visit different ladies in the church each month. Many have become my good friends and you know that their needs are being met. Being a part of a ward is great because the people in it become like your family. Church activites, such as potlucks and ward parties, are lots of fun. It is like having a family reunion and getting to visit with all your friends.
