Hi I'm Monica

I'm a Mormon. I am a recent (May 2011) convert. I have 2 kids also members my oldest is 15yrs, and my youngest is 12 yrs.

About Me

I'm engaged to a wonderful guy, we meet at church back in the begining of this year. He is super cool, totally awesome, respectful, young, and great with my kids. Im a Medical Assistant, I've worked in a Pediatrics Office for 2 1/2 years, temp hire at a Multispecialty Clinic (cardiology/neurology) for awile. Now I am working as a CNA doing Home Health Care!

Why I am a Mormon

Ok, so my friend for like 2 yrs never really invited me to church or "pushed" me to functions, yeah we would go over for FHE but i never felt wierd because the kids we all friends and so I looked at it as a good school evening to spend together. My kids had been to church for like special occasions, however I grew up in chruch but when I married my husband didnt go and we moved alot so I stopped going. Anyway, at my friends house we met the Sister Missionaries and they asked about our church preferences. I said we dont go and the kids and I left soon after since it was a school night. Later that week I asked my friend "How do you know what church to go to?" So she invited us back over this time to actually meet with the missionaries and we started taking the lessons. My son (the oldest) was less interested but he sat there and listened while my daughter and I participated. Several things started happening: first I wanted to call my grandfather a Deacon at my old church and get his take on the Book of Mormon, second I put off reading for about a week I just kept praying asking for a "sign" somethnig to sway me to read or not to read. well I couldnt sleep so I grabbed my Book of Mormon and started reading the Introduction and got my "sign" I was reading after midnight May 1st into May 2nd 2011. Joseph Smith says somethign about May 2, 1838! REALLY!!! Then at mine and my daughters Baptism, my son (who was still unsure) changed his mind and started getting interviewed while I was in the font!!

How I live my faith

As of now, I'm living my Faith by helping others in the ward and in the community, I am a Nursery Assistant.
