Hi I'm Theresa

I am a mother of four children. I teach school at home. ASL is my second language. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy woodworking and building things. I like to figure out how things work. I used to run triathlons, but now I prefer to swim and bike with my family. I used to teach clogging and American Sign Language and was an ASL interpreter for several years. Now I teach my children at home. I enjoy anything that involves my family - camping, hiking, fishing, quading, movies, gardening etc... We recently reroofed our house together and did some home canning. It was awesome to see both my older and young children helping to preserve the food they will be eating.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I turned 8 years old I made the choice to be baptized and comfirmed a member of the church. For as far back as I can remember I have always felt that the things I learned at church were logical. As I learned and continue to learn of our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness it just makes so much sense to me! Beyond that, I have felt and continue to feel the Holy Spirit quietly testify to me that the things I read in the scriptures are true. When I hear President Monson speak it testifies that he is called of God to be His prophet on the earth today. Each time I have experienced childbirth I have witnessed one of God's miracles. When I am blessed to be out in nature there is no doubt in my mind that it is the Lord's creations that I am witnessing.

How I live my faith

I volunteer as a Cub Scout Den Leader. I enjoy teaching and working with the boys in our community. Some are members of the same faith, others are not, and some are not members of any religious group. It is rewarding to watch them grow as they learn the skills that will help them be better citizens. On Sundays at church I teach a class for young toddlers called Nursery.
