Hi I'm Paula

I am Southern girl who is a wife and a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to work-out, read a good book, and take care of my family and home. Before coming a stay-at-home mom to two young daughters, I was a Special Education high school teacher. I was born and raised in the South which means I enjoy good comfort food, college football, and saying the word ya'll.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS faith but I developed my own testimony when I came to realize that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave me the answers to my questions and an eternal perspective of what this life is about. The Gospel give me comfort, strength, and knowledge of our loving Heavenly Father and His plan for His sons and daughters. I would feel incomplete, even lost, without it.

How I live my faith

Being Mormon is an everyday thing for me. It influences every aspect of my life. From how I live my life to how I treat others. My faith has given me the direction and tools I use to better myself and teach my children to be good, faithful, honest, and hard-working people. It allows me to serve and love others in many different capacities in and out of the Church. I love being able to serve others by helping them move, cooking a meal, watching their children, or teaching a lesson in Church.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

I love being a woman in the Mormon faith. Women have such an important role on this earth and that role is respected and celebrated by Mormon men. As women we are taught that we have a large role in taking care of our families and children. We are responsible for the values, manners, and lessons taught in our home and to our children. What a great responsibility but a wonderful, never ending blessing. Mormon women are also taught and encourage to develop our minds, our talents, and ourselves. I love associating with other Mormon women who teach me so much about taking care of my home, my children, and about life. Show more Show less
