Hi I'm Victory.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mom of two rambunctious boys. I have a super-supportive husband, who is truly one of a kind. (I fell in love with him for his goofy side.) I love making beautiful things, which currently means painting with oils, quilting, and working on finally finishing that pair of knitted socks I started a century ago.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church, but my mother, bless her heart, had some weird ideas about God, so for a long time, I thought He was some kind of tyrant out to get me. When I was 14, my mother died and my family stopped going to church. When I was 16, my dad remarried a sweet woman from an anti-Mormon background. Because she was so opposed to the Church, I had to find out for myself whether it was the true Church or not. That's when I read the Book of Mormon for the first time. One day, I was walking to church in the snow (in El Paso, TX, where nobody owns warm coats) and I asked myself if it was worth all the trouble. I got a sweet feeling in my heart that yes, it was worth it because this really is the true Church of Jesus Christ. That was over 20 years ago, and my experiences have only strengthened that conviction. I know now that God is my loving Heavenly Father and that he cares about me so much that he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to bring me back home to him. Jesus cleans me from sin, heals my hurts, and makes my efforts for good reach so much farther than what I could do alone. He is my everything. He is my Savior.

How I live my faith

For me, faith is an everyday, living, breathing thing. It's in the way I treat the people around me. I try to live so that the people around me-my sons, my neighbors, my friends and strangers-can feel that God loves them because of the way I treat them. You never know when someone has just been begging the Lord to send someone who will make them feel loved.
