Hi I'm Valori B. Cable

I'm a family nurse practioner, lead euphonium in the local community orchestra, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of three boys; two I gave birth to and one came with my marriage to my second husband. I work in the medical field starting with being a nursing assistant, then an EMT, a ICU/CCU RN for twenty years and now a family nurse practioner. I am the euphonium section for the local communiy orchestra. Fortunately, I direct our Ward choir which is a joy and play the piano for the very forgiving Relief Society sisters.

Why I am a Mormon

I used to ask questions when I was very young, such as "Why would God punish people and allow them to burn in Hell because they had not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ?" I could not believe that God would be so unfair. A lot of preachers would fervently declare that if people didn't attend their church, that the people were damned and going to hell. Again, since the whole world couldn't attent the same church services at the same time, those types of statements didn't make sense to me; I was six or seven years old at the time. When I was a single mom in my mid thirties, my oldest son had been roller-skating at the elementary school parking lot and got thirsty. He and his friend went to the church next door and asked if they could have a drink of water; they started talking to the missionaries. After several weeks, my son asked if the missionaries could come and talk to us in our home and I agreed. When the missionaries came to my home I took a Bible, placed it on the kitchen table, and stated very firmly "If you can't teach me from this Bible.....walk out of my house and never come back!" Obviously, the missionaries were able to teach everything from the Bible because my two sons and I were baptised as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

As I live my faith and deal honestly, charitably, and fairly with my fellow man, my patients, co-workers, and family....people notice. When people ask about my faith, I give them honest answers and they learn to appreciate the teaching of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am my ward's Music Chairman and choir director. I get to share my faith in spoken testimony and music.
