Hi I'm Roxy

I grew up in the small town of Eagle Pass Tx, joined the military and now I am a stay at home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 32 yr old mom of 4 great kids. And have been married for 12 yrs now. Since my baptism at the age of 16 I have struggled to stay active in the church. Becoming a convert at such an early age is very hard. For one thing you have so much peer pressure at school and then to go home to a place where only 2 people in your family are members is hard to live with. So when I joined the military right out of high school I went inactive even more. I met my husband 1 1/2 yrs later and just knew I had to marry him. We have been together since. We were both inactive members and were no ready to go back to church. After many hard times in our marriage and 4 wonderful kids we both finally grew up and decided we had to go back " for the kids sake". Our kids needed some stability in their lives and needed to learn of Christ as well. We have been back in the church and fully active for over a year and it has been the best year in our marriage. Our family couldn't be any happier right now.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon......... When I converted at age 16 I was an active member in my Catholic church. I was moving and back and forth from my dad's house and my mom's house. On one of my many moves into my mom's home I saw she was getting lessons from missionaries and found that very odd. She wanted to go to church but didn't want to go alone because of not knowing anyone. So she asked and I went for support even though I did not want to have anything to do with the religion. After attending I remember wanting to go back the next Sunday but I couldn't let my mom know that. My mom continued to receive lessons and I would sit there and listen. When she committed to get baptized I was very happy for her. That was the happiest I had ever seen her. At he baptism I felt such a warmth in my heart and I couldn't understand at the time what it was, but I knew I had to tell her that I wanted to receive the lessons from the missionaries and join the church also. About a month later I was the newest member in my ward. That was the best decision in my life. Even if I went inactive for many years after that there was that feeling in my heart that I had to go back. Even as an inactive member I had a testimony of the church. I knew that this was the true church of our savior Jesus Christ, I knew that when I was an active member I was the happiest in my life. And I still know now that everything I felt in my heart at the age of 16 I feel now as an adult at the age of 32 is real.

How I live my faith

I am now a counselor in our young women's program in our ward. I love my calling. I help teach them the young women values. Being with them helps me out more that they will ever know. I make sure and live my life as I want them to live theirs. They make me work harder at my faith and I love them for that.
