Hi I'm Trish
I'm a Mormon.
I am a Primary teacher in the Kerrville Ward. I teach the 4 and 5 yr olds. I love teaching these amazing children and more often than not I feel that they teach me more than I could ever teach them. I love working on a variety of crafts. My Mom got me started on crafting when I was a kid. I currently make and sell jewelry, its nothing fancy really just basic bead stringing. Although I would like to learn the harder and more intricate ways of beading . I also enjoy scrapbooking. And I am a published poet (my poem is in a book with several other great poets). My poetry or writing is a way for me to put my thoughts on paper and kind of let them out wether it be good thoughts or sometimes things that are hard for me to say out loud. My husband is a recent convert to the Church, he was baptizied almost a year ago. Ive been a member for as long as I can remember, my parents are converts as well. Sister Missonaries came and taught them when they were in their 20s and they got baptized very soon after that. If you have any questions feel free to ask, I am an open book .
Why I am a Mormon
Growing up I always new that our Church was different but that made me love it even more. When I became a teenager and my friends began experimenting with alcohol and ciggarets I had a strong belief in the Church and what was/is right and wrong so because of my strong faith I was able to stay away from those things and be strong even though some of my best friends fell for the temptation. When I turned 18 I kind of started pulling away from the Church a little bit at a time. Then I got my first job and it was hard to get time off to be able to go to Church so I became inactive. My parents would never force me to go it was always our choice. So I stopped going all together. I then started dating a guy who was a non member and I gave up all my dreams of marrying a mormon boy in the Temple. We ended up getting married when we were 20 (a bad choice for a lot of reasons). Well our marriage was rocky from the get go, it progressively got worse and I was willing to do anything to make it work. He liked to go out and drink so I decided that if I drank too it would make it work better. Up till this point I was still following my church beliefs although I wasnt going to church. Drinking makes things worse and so things turned horrible. We both did things we arent proud of. And we got divorced after 3yrs of marriage. So thinking that I was a horrible person I refused to come back to Church because I didnt think I belonged. I moved back in with my parents and they convinced me to try talking to the Bishop. So I finnaly got the nerve to go back to church. Not long after that I was asked to help out in the Primary. I told them I had to talk to the Bishop first. I confessed everything I had done and began my path to forgiveness. I know that this is where I need to be not only for myself but for my future family. Ibegan dating a non member and told him about the church. He is now a convert and we ve been married for almost 2yrs. We are working towards a temple marriage.
How I live my faith
I am a Primary Teacher at the Kerrville Ward, the Primary is what we call the classes for the children. I teach the 4 and 5 yr olds. Every time I teach them it helps me to strengthen my testimony and faith as well. I know without a doubt that this is the True Church of Jesus Christ and I am soo happy to be able to say that I am LDS.
