Hi I'm Darla

I am a mother, a wife, A friend, a sister and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 32 years old. I have 5 children ranging in age from 3 years to 12 years old. The oldest and youngest are girls, and the middle three are boys. I have been married for 11 years now. We are a former navy family. We have lived in Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, and now Montana. I am so grateful that Heavenly Father brought my husband into my life, and that we were blessed with these children. I am so grateful everyday that I get to wake up and see my beautiful family. :) I love to go on hikes, sight seeing, driving, doing fun, and educational things with our children. I also have 2 shih tzu's Gucci, and Louie. I have a cat named pepper. We relocated to Billings Montana for a better quality of life, and for work. :)

Why I am a Mormon

Because my life was really not where I wanted it to be...but my family is Mormon even tho I was never baptized in to it...it took til my adulthood when I really felt the stress of my life..and that I felt so alone, and so far away from heavenly father...I had missionaries coming to my door....and they brought with them a message I was finally able to hear. They never pushed me...they listened and told me heavenly father loves me and my family, we started going to church...and it was so welcoming. I loved the people there. So we decided as a family to get baptized...and here we are today. My life has changed...so much. It has brought unity for all of us. A place we belong...and we all believe in the same thing and know that it is true!! which makes family time much better. I love it. And I am glad I did it, :)

How I live my faith

Well, I go to church every week that I can. I live my whole week to go on Sunday. It's something the children and I do, and we learn so much. I love the groups we go to...And I learn so much. I like that we can help out with scouts for the boys...we read our scriptures every day...and we pray together as a family. It brings us closer. :)

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Darla
Heavenly father wants us to take good care of our bodies...so we do not put things into our bodies that could cause addictions, because they are not healthy, and we think about the food we eat, and the drinks we drink so we can keep our bodies healthy and continue to make good choices. Some things, like alcohol and illegal drugs can aid in poor choices, and take away our ability to choose all together...causing us to do things we normally wouldn't do. Cigarettes are full of toxins that can cause disease, And other health problems. It's also very addicting....which means we no longer have the right to choose, because it consumes us, and controls us by making it so hard to stop.... Coffee and tea also have the ability to be addicting and so they are not healthy. We are taught that taking care of our bodies is possible thru limiting our red meat intake, eating fresh fruit and veggies that are in season, :) Show more Show less
