Hi I'm Adrienne

I'm a Medical Coder. I'm a hopeful adoptive mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently, I work from home as a medical coder. I enjoy helping others and through my work I get to make sure people's medical charts are as complete and correct as possible. When I am not at work I enjoy to read, paint, play games, and advocate for our adoption. Through our trial of infertility my husband and I have been blessed with the opportunity to adopt our first child. We are anxiously awaiting this wonderful oppurtunity!

Why I am a Mormon

I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (or Mormon church) when I was 17. My grandfathers were diagnosed with lung cancer and soon before my dad's father passed away he chose to be baptized. I had grown up going to church with my family, but we stopped when I was at a young age. I felt that if my grandfather thought it was important maybe I should look into going to church again. I attended many churches including the Mormon church and fell in love with the traditional hymns, the caring people, and the spirit that I felt as I attended the Mormon church. I was baptized on February 11, 2001 and the Gospel continues to bring blessings into my life daily. I am Mormon because I know that this earthly life is not the end. I know there is a greater purpose to this life. That through the atonement of Jesus Christ we can be with Heavenly Father again. Although life still has it trials, I am able to work through them more effectively because I am a member of the church.

How I live my faith

I am lucky to be a Ward (our congregation) Missionary. I get to work along side our full time missionaries (those that serve a mission for 18-24 months). I get to fellowship with those in our community and share the message of the Gospel with them. I also get to work with the women in our church to coordinate a program called Visiting Teaching where we visit each other and give service to the other women in our Ward. There is always an abundance of ways to serve, exercise talents, and participate in church. It is my hope that I also live my faith each day through example to those around me, and also by continually working on being a better person each day.
