Hi I'm Debbi

I love to play the piano, read, and be with my family. I've been married for 11 years and have 4 fabulous kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play the piano, read, and bake. I have been married for 11 years to my high school sweetheart. We have 4 wonderful kids. 2 boys and 2 girls. I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Development. I have the best job ever now teaching my kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all my life. I grew up hearing the principles of the church but there came a time when I was a teenager that I really wanted to know for myself whether I believed or not. My testimony didn't come all at once but little by little. Teachers at church would challenge me to pray and ask to know for myself if things they were teaching were true. I did and the sweet assurance and peace always came that they were speaking truth. When I wanted to know if the Book of Mormon was true, I knelt down to ask God. I then started reading at the beginning of the book and as I read about Nephi and his family, I ABSOLUTELY knew that this was a real family and what I was reading really DID happen. I know that we have a Father in Heaven who loves us and hears and answers our prays.

How I live my faith

Because I love to play the piano, I am often asked to play the hymns or children's songs in our congregation. I love the power of good music! When you bring gospel truths together with a sweet melody it has a way of reaching your heart even deeper and in a way that nothing else can. Currently, I teach the 10 and 11 year olds of my congregation. I love meeting with them each week! Their perspective on life is so pure and simple. Teaching, for me, strengthens my faith in Jesus Christ and his teachings. As I prepare to teach these kids, I learn so much more than I could ever expound in the hour that we are together. At the end of my lesson, I always testify of the truthfulness of the principles and stories that we covered that day. Doing this always strengthens my testimony and gives me a greater resolve to do good in my life.
