Hi I'm Whitney

I'm a wife. I quit my job to be a stay at home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After graduating high school I attended Massage Therapy school. I worked in a family practice office until I had my son in 2011. My biggest dream in life was to be a stay at home mom so i could be around my kids. My husband attends school full time and has 2 part times jobs to make ends meet. Although its hard we wouldnt change a thing. Our son is our biggest blessing. I love to travel. Some of my favorite places are Disneyland and Hawaii. I love watching all sports. I played fast pitch softball in high school. I love to write poetry. I love to lay by the pool and spend time outside in the summer heat. I love meeting new people and making new friends. Cant wait to get to know you better!

Why I am a Mormon

One of the biggest reasons I personally love the church is because of the focus of the family. Ever since I was little I dreamed of my children and what kind of parent I would be. This church teaches how to be that parent. How to teach those boys to become young men and the girls to be young women. I love that this church has given me the knowledge that after death I wont loose my family. That I can live with them forever. I know that my Savior didnt just die for everyone but that he did it for each person individually. He died for me. He bled from every pore for me. He died for you. He bled from every pore for you. I've learned through this gospel that personal revelation is real. I have had prayers answered that prove that my Heavenly Father loves me. Its not always the answer I was wanting but every time I follow those revelations my life is changed for the better. I love my Savior. I love my relationship with him. I love that I KNOW that I am a daughter of God and that I matter. I love that I am not afraid of what the world thinks of me because I know what my Heavenly Father thinks of me. And I wouldnt know any of this if it wasnt for this gospel. I know in my heart that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

As a mother I try to help my son, who is 10 months, remember who he is so as he grows and the world is harsh, he will remember that he has a family who loves him and more importantly a Heavenly Father who is proud of the man he is. I tell him bible and book of mormon stories. We sing songs about how he is a child of God. One of my favorite songs I sing to him says "Teach me to walk in the light of his love, teach me to pray to my father above, teach me to know of the things that are right. Teach me, Teach me to walk in the light. Come little child and together we'll learn of his commandments so we may return, home to his presence to live in his sight. Always, Always to walk in the light. Father in Heaven we thank thee this day for loving guidence to show us the way. Grateful we praise thee with songs of delight. gladly gladly we'll walk in the light."

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is an organization for the women in the church (18 or older) that is to help support one another and provide aid to those in the ward who are in need of a friend, a meal, babysitter, or any other thing. We meet as a Relief Society each sunday for a lesson on how we can help our testimonies grow and to become better women, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends. There are usually activities through out the week as well. These activities are uplifting and fun. The Relief Society has been a strength for me in my times of need. Some of my best friends I have met have been from attending Relief Society. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of the LDS church is peaceful. We experience hard times, trials, and heart ache like anyone else but we have the knowledge to be able to deal with those situations. It makes it easier to have peace and joy in your life. The knowledge the church gives you helps you enjoy your life, to understand your trials. It gives you a sense of purpose. Show more Show less
