Hi I'm Marcy

I'm an enthusiast: for family, health, and life! I'm happy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the proud mother of three boys, and one girl, and the wife of one good man. I have great enthusiasm for life! I love making people happy and a having good laugh. I teach a classroom full of boys with autism at a local elementary school. I enjoy a good, hard workout-whether it be at the gym or outside hiking, running, or cycling. It makes me happy to be creative and make things: jewelry, decorating, making any occasion cards, planning parties, arranging flowers, you name it! I find shopping (browsing mostly), visiting with friends, reading, and kayaking, relaxing. But my favorite thing in the world is spending time with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life and have often wondered where I would be without my religion and have decided that I don’t even want to know. I grew up in a good home with parents who showed me every day that they loved me and they loved God. We always knew that when mom’s bedroom door was closed, she was praying and we were not to disturb her. I remember being late to school a few times because we read scriptures as a family every morning and I couldn’t leave until we were done. As a child, that was frustrating, but as an adult, I value what reading together as a family instilled in me. First, it drew us together as a family, and second, it helped me learn about Jesus Christ and why He is even important. I know that He lived to show me an example of how to live my life, treat others, and be happy. I know that He died for me so that I can repent when I make mistakes and live with God again someday. I know that He is real, as is God, and that They love us and want us to be happy here on earth. I am happy when I do what is right and follow Christ’s example.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. Serving makes me happy and helps me show gratitude to God. That was what the Savior’s life was all about. He made a difference in the lives of those around Him. I want to be like that.
