Hi I'm Portia

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a proud mom of two amazing boys that I adopted through Foster Care. I am happily married for almost 9 years to my best friend. I love to read, scrapbook, and find pintrest to be the coolest thing!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home that did not have the gospel as the foundation to our home. I converted when I was 12 by a brother. The gospel brought him so much joy.....I wanted that same joy! As I raise my family with the gospel of Jesus Christ as our foundation I have been blessed so much and am grateful that I was given the opportunity to have it. I want to share the very gift I was given because I don't know what I would have done without it in my life as a constant guide. I am comforted that my boys will be raised in the gospel and already see so many blessing because of that gift!

How I live my faith

I try to make the gospel a priority in everything I do. I love to do scripture study and have come to have such a stronger understanding because of that. It has brought me so much joy as I have grown closer and closer to my Father in Heaven. I teach sunbeams (3-4 year olds) and I absolutely love it! They have such a glow about them that I look forward to seeing every Sunday! Watching their little testimonies grow stronger each day has in turn helped mine to constantly grow!!! My new focus has been to be more dedicated to family home evening where we set aside a day to spend with our family. It just continues to strengthen our family and helping my kiddos to have even more opportunity to learn about the gospel!
