Hi I'm Antoinette

I'm an army brat. I'm a massage therapist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I finally finished college after about ten years of attending on and off. I quit four year universities in favor of a trade school. I learned all about the body and how it works in order to be a massage therapist. I also discovered a lot about my spirituality and energies and empathy. I absolutely love what I do. After a long battle with depression I finally learned to embrace it and move with it allowing it to tell me what needed to change. I've gone through a huge transformation in the past four years and I am happy. Truly happy. I now have a deep desire to help others struggling with similar things, and I help do that with massage therapy, Reiki, and use of my own empathic skills and personal experience.

Why I am a Mormon

Technically I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was baptized at age eight along with so many other members. However, my parents were very on again more off again in their attendance. I had a basic idea that there was a God and that He loved me somehow, but I didn't know him. When I turned thirteen I decided there had to be something to The Church so I started attending. It took many years to figure out what it was I was searching for, but I found it and the result still amazes me. To have so fully experienced the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, to know so fully that I am worthwile, that I am worth something, and that my Father in Heaven loves me so completely has been the single most important thing in my entire life. It has helped me to do the hardest thing I've ever had to do, that I believe anyone in American society has to do. It helped me face myself, all of me, positive and negative, healthy and unhealthy, whole and incomplete. It helped me accept who I am, all of me, and love who I am. And I am happy.

How I live my faith

I get to direct music for the meeting of the ladies in The Church where I meet. I love talking to the teacher and asking what her lesson is going to be about then finding the Hymns that will complement the lesson. My other favorite challenge is finding women who love to share their talent of singing and organize them so we can sing in other Church meetings. I also love being a part of The Church Choir for my area. Being able to share my love for my Lord and my God through music is a powerful part of my life. It helps bolster my faith in times when I am having difficulty. Music is truly the sound of one's soul. It tells more than words have ever been able to express.
