Hi I'm Trish.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother to four children. I like to read, write, craft, take photos and play volleyball. I love strawberries.

Why I am a Mormon

I always knew that my greatest achievement would be to become a mother. When I was in college, I began investigating the Church and I was impressed with the support that is given to families in raising children to walk uprightly before the Lord. The children go to Primary on Sundays and learn stories of Jesus from the scriptures. They learn and sing songs about their heroes in the scriptures. They attend activities outside of Sunday lessons like Cub Scouts and Activity Days. They have teachers that love and encourage them to "Choose the Right." Even though church lasts for three hours, my children love to attend. Their experience is vastly different than my childhood experience. Teenagers have their own Sunday classes with their peers, as well, and have their own weekly meetings, too. They attend early morning Seminary and start their high school days with scripture reading and lessons that help them develop their own testimonies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They are encouraged to pray to Heavenly Father to know if the things they are learning are true. They are taught correct principles and are free to govern themselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures and praying with my family daily. I keep Jesus Christ at the center of my life by attending church every Sunday and fulfilling my duties serving the young women of my ward. We look for opportunities to serve one another and others in our community. I also home school two of my children and work from home as a graphic artist for a company out-of-state. I belong to a group of moms that goes to the temple regularly. We take turns babysitting so that we can go to the temple in the mornings on a weekday. All of these things help me to constantly strive to live what I know to be true. I know that I am not perfect, but knowing that Jesus atoned for my sins allows me to repent and seek perfection. I want my children to always remember that they are children of God and have the courage to live accordingly.
