Hi I'm Angela

I'm a daughter. I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just your average person - interested in many things, but can only find time for a few. I love my husband and children and feel blessed every day because of them. Photography is a natural part of my life, and is something those around me might wish I did less. I love music: playing the piano, singing, learning the violin, and dreaming of composing or arranging my own music pieces. I like to sew and try my hand at making new things. I like the idea of building furniture. I daydream of decorating my house but don't really make it happen. I love to listen to others, no matter what they have to say. I love languages - I graduated with a degree in Linguistics. I really like to bake. I enjoy laughing, and especially love to hear my own children laugh. I'm not particularly good at any one thing, but I feel blessed to be where I am in life, and look forward to all the future holds.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to wonderful parents who were already faithful members in the Church. As a child, I trusted my parents and knew that what they taught me was the best thing for me, because I knew they loved me. As I grew older, I began to think more for myself, and desired to know for certain whether or not The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was really true. I hoped for some magnificent revelation or undeniable sign. Instead, I felt the quiet peace and assurance that I've felt my whole life. I realized that I didn't need some sign to tell me the Church WAS true - instead, I recognized within myself that there was no way I could ever believe the Church was not true. My testimony had been slowly developing all along, and even if I wanted to convince myself otherwise, I absolutely could not deny the spirit's reassurance to me of the truthfulness of this great work. Only good comes from this Church. And only the Spirit of our Heavenly Father can so personally communicate with us inside our hearts so as to help us recognize truth when truth is present.

How I live my faith

Bit by bit, day by day. I strive to choose good things when choices are before me. Currently I have the opportunity to work with a small group of boys in Cub Scouts. It's rewarding to see the boys learn and grow. Before that, I worked more closely with the other women in our area, working along-side them doing service projects, making and donating different things for humanitarian aid, building and strengthening friendships and homes, and helping one another.
