Hi I'm Danielle Williams

I am a stay at home mom (domestic engineer), mother of 8, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Montana and have lived here most of my life. I love music, reading, doing family history, and cross-stitching, but all of these hobbies are second to my roles of wife and mother. I have been married to my amazing husband for 21 1/2 years, and we have 8 wonderful children ranging from 20-yrs-old to 4-yrs-old. They are the joys of my life. I have been blessed to always stay at home with them- which is a blessing and a challenge as well. I am an official planner, organizer, chef, teacher, and taxi-cab driver. We play together, read together, make music together, watch movies together, learn patience together...and above all love each other. I grew up in a family with loving parents, 4 brothers and 1 sister. One of my brothers was born with Cerebral Palsy (this is his trial in life), and another one of my brother has recently been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a trial for him. Although my parents are divorced and both happily remarried, we all strive to be a happy family and love each other with our joys and challenges. One truth I know is that we are never given a burden more than we are able to bear.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Latter-Day Saint family and was always taught to choose the right. As a child, I was obedient and learned about the gospel of Jesus Christ, but I also leaned on others testimonies until I was a teenager. As a 16-yr-old girl, I gained a personal testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true, and I have never looked back from that moment. Life is not an easy experience, but mine has been filled with much joy. I have faced several trials in my life, but I have ALWAYS been blessed as well. I have not had to experience death of close loved ones, or sicknesses, or financial crisises, but my challenges have taught me patience, love of prayer, the power of a kind word, and the joy in loving others. I feel I have been blessed greatly, and I try to share that peace with others.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my life making good decisions daily. We begin each day with prayer to ask for guidance and protection. Every step in life is a choice and a consequence of those decisions. Our 20-yr-old son is now serving in the Mexico Tampico mission. Our next son leaves in 2 months to serve in the Mexico Villahermosa mission. Our families' lives have been greatly blessed to have missionaries serving from our home. Daily we try to improve ourselves and be the best person we can be. As a mother, I am devoted to teaching our children right from wrong. I currently teach 14 and 15-yr-old teenagers on Sundays about the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I love to teach them, and I am amazed at how thoughtful and inspirational they are. They will be great leaders someday.
