Hi I'm Nancy

I grew up in Loa Utah, I now live in Randolph, Utah. I enjoy the small town life. I am a wife, mother & nurse. I am a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in a small southern Utah town. My dad owns sheep and is a farmer. It was a great place to grow up, I learned values that have shaped my life. After leaving my hometown I attended college and graduated as a registered nurse. I chose to serve an LDS mission shortly after graduating school. Within a year of returning home, I was set up on a blind date and met the man I married. He too is from a small town and that is were we now live. His father is a cattle rancher, he works with his father and now my children have some of the same good experiences I did growing up. I have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. The oldest is 6, my baby girl is 9 months, and I hope to have more someday. Being a mother of small children has it's challenges, but even on the hard days I am so grateful for my kids. It definitely teaches you to be completely selfless, you learn to sacrifice everything for the children you love so dearly. I enjoy being a wife and mother everyday. I enjoy being with my sisters and brother too. I share a special bond with them, and treasure their company. Some of my favorite things are: listening to my children laugh- especially with one another, the sound of my husbands foot steps coming in the house, laughing with my sisters on the phone, reading a good book, running or pushing my kids in the stroller, fall, rainy days, the smell of fresh cut alfalfa, sitting by my grandmothers and listen to them tell my stories of the way things used to be.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon has always been a part of who I am. I grew up living the teachings of Jesus Christ- taught to me by my Mom, Dad and Grandparents. I didn't realize it at the time, but their most powerful teaching tools were the choices they made, the things they said and how they spent their time. I was taught to be honest, kind, to work hard, be respectful of others-especially those older than I, to honor the Sabbath day and keep it holy, and take care of my body- don't take anything or do anything to cause it harm. I didn't always do as I was taught, but as I grew older I realized the value of those teachings. Being taught these important principles grew from simply appreciating the principle by living it, to understanding that doing so would help me build a relationship with God- my Heavenly Father and His Son, my Savior. There came a time in my life when I needed to know if what I was taught was correct, I studying hard and prayed often. I came to know that the things I had been taught weren't just principles my parents relied upon to "parent me" and my siblings, but that they themselves believed them wholeheartedly. I knew they knew these things because a Prophet of God, Joseph Smith and all the Latter-day Prophets taught these truths. Why am I a Mormon? Because it makes me a good person, It helps me be good mother, but most importantly- it has taught me how to build and keep a relationship with Heavenly Father, and now

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon and living all the teaching of the Gospel brings such joy to my life. I live my faith by teaching my children about Jesus. I read from the Bible & Book of Mormon to them. I try to be a good example to them by the way I live and how I speak. I want to serve others because this is what Christ would like me to do. I try to be a good friend. I want to be kind to everyone I know. I teach my children at home and I currently teach the children in my ward. The children gather together each Sunday and are taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love helping the children. They are excited to learn. They recognize truth and want to live what they are taught. I once told my parents the only way I can repay them for all they have done to raise me is to live a good life myself. I feel that living my faith in my daily life- by choosing to do the things God has taught me is the only way I can show Him my gratitude for life, my family and all my blessings.
