Hi I'm Summer

I'm a Mormon. I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, and on-pause Elementary School Teacher.

About Me

I am a Mom of 2 kids, wife of a recreational pilot (any sympathizers out there?), and a college graduate (Elementary Education). I loved Ballroom dancing while in High School and College, and played Clarinet in the band. I still love to play the piano, read, and exercise. Training for half-marathons usually whips me into shape. I am so blessed to be a stay-at-home Mom and I love spending time with my kids. I taught 1st grade before I had my first child, and plan to take up teaching again when the kids are out of the house.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into a family of Mormons, and as my parents taught me the precepts of the gospel by example and word, I came to see the goodness of it. Through different experiences of life, and prayer, common sense, and the Spirit of the Lord , I have come to know, and continue to come to know the truth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love belonging to the Church that is led and guided today by Jesus Christ himself, through a living Prophet, and bears his name, not some other name. I know it is the true and living Church of Jesus Christ, the same one that existed when he was on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best I can - not perfectly by any means. I attend church and participate in serving others there. I play the piano while the children sing and I love to hear their voices sing about Christ and truth. I try to live the teachings of Jesus Christ every day, not just on Sundays, and when I fall short, I try again. To the best of my ability, I teach my children about Jesus Christ, how he taught us to live, and Heavenly Father's Plan for us. I live my faith by being grateful to Heavenly Father for all the many incredible blessings He has blessed us with, including our growing understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His Plan for us. I feel that being thankful for the small and simple things around us brings me closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I hope to be more and more like him every day.
