Hi I'm Molly

I am a small town girl, trying to raise a family in the city! I am a wife and mother - I am so blessed! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up a small town and loved the small town life. After leaving my home town to go to school and then serve a church mission. I came home from my mission and met my husband. We now live in what I would say is the "big city." While we enjoy living where there is much to offer, I often yearn to return to the simpler life of living in a small town where life moves a little more slowly. I am happy mother most of my time, with moments of being overwhelmed by the huge task of being a full time mom. When things are calm, I love to indulge myself with tackling home projects, creating crafts, reading, and getting in some much needed physical exertion. And of course enjoying the occasional nap. Even though I do find motherhood incredibly fulfilling and challenging, I do hope to someday apply my education training and become a P.E. teacher and I even contemplate applying to medical school. Who knows...the sky is the limit!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are converts to the church and joined the Church before I was born. However, even though I was born into the church, as I grew into maturity I changed from being born into the church and being a Mormon to knowing that I wanted to be a Mormon. I was able to come to this conclusion as I went through adolescence and later left home to go to college. I didn't need my parents to prompt me to go to church. I wanted to go to church. I didn't need their supervision to help me make good choices. I wanted to make good choices. I knew that by being a Mormon and living my life aligned with it's teachings that I was happy. And the more I have lived my life in this troubling world, the more I am thankful for the steadfast virtues and constant direction that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints offers me. I am a Mormon not because it is easy or convenient, I am a Mormon because I choose to live a life that I hope is a pattern after the life of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I feel that it is important to live my faith every moment of my life. I don't feel that it is enough to live my faith one day a week. I feel that it is important to live my faith even in moments when no one may notice or be watching. To me those are the most important times to live my faith. I like to believe that I am living my faith, by being kind to people I meet. I have multiple opportunities to travel around to different parts of our city and help organize Saturday's where women come together and make crafts. I love watching ladies make something and get so excited that it looks great and they made it! One of my favorite moments this last year was helping with a very large girls camp. This was an awesome experience to go camping with so many young ladies. There were so many great activities for these young ladies learning outdoor skills, go hiking, participating in silly skits and ultimately strengthening their friendships. I like to volunteer in my children's school. I want to involved in their school and in the community. My husband always teases me because I make friends every where I go. I am sure as my children get older, they won't appreciate me chatting with strangers around town. I like to believe that as I am kind to those around me I am living my faith by being like my Savior. I believe that I live my faith when I am honest. I feel my greatest indication of how I am living life is by watching my children with each other at home. Most of the time they are the best of friends, they are each others biggest fan. And when there are moments frustration and anger, I hope I am teaching them to be forgiving, patient, and kind. So, the relationships we have now can stay strong and last forever, especially as families are being constantly attacked.
