Hi I'm Sonney

I am a mother of four children. I am studying criminal justice so I can help other children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to my four children. I love being their mom because they teach me how to be myself. I am a very energetic person who loves to play children games. They are proud of me for being me. I am going to school to become a probation officer for minors. I want to be able to have a positive influence on the future leaders and next generation. Our children should be kids today and shown the most love ever. Tomorrow is when the job starts. I love watching criminal minds, playing hide n seek, tag, apples to apples, running, swimming, camping, traveling, cuddling next to the kids to watch a good movie, tasting my two teenagers new recipes, collecting thimbles and most of all making up new jokes to tell.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised my two brothers, two sisters and I as Mormans. I lost both parents before age eleven and then both my brothers passed away before they were 19 years of age. I felt lost and confused and the word "HOME" felt non-existent. I moved a lot with my children in the military and the feelings got worse. We always felt out of place and during our first few days at a new home, my oldest daughter and I were unpacking our books, movies and CD's. She found my old Book of Morman from when I was a child. She opened it and out fell a letter I wrote about being baptized. She asked me what it meant and why I needed to get baptized. The more I explained the more I had a desire to wonder what happen. How did I lose my way? I took the children to church one Sunday. I felt like I never left and the kids had some much information from Sunday school in one day. Our feeling of having a "HOME", having a place has never left our minds and hearts. I felt at home again; I feel the Holy Spirit all around me no matter what I am doing and where I am. My two older children were baptized in the same town I was baptized in. They have their responsibilities and are happier than the years we spend alone without declaring ourselves MORMANS.

How I live my faith

I have little time for a heavy social life. So when, I have those days when I need a hug or an ear, I use my relationship with my heavenly father to discuss what ever I need to talk about. I consider this the best friend in the world because I do not feel judged, pressured to take any advice, and no excuse why he cannot come for visit. I have many people in my church who would love to help and listen but my down time is late at night after putting the kids to bed and getting ready for the next day. This is why I like to be near children, their fearlessness and innocents reminds me to be the best I can be for my father. I do my studies (learn the scriptures) as best as I can as a child would, I try to remember to not say anything at all if I cannot say something nice, I do my chores (serve others, my motherly duties), say my prayers twice a day, and most of all serve my heavenly father.
