Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a lucky mother of four, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom to my four beautiful children. It is the greatest and most rewarding job I've ever had! My kids fill my days with constant fun, excitement, sometimes stress, and lots of laughter. My family is the greatest joy in my life! I love spending time with them and building memories together. Some of the things I love to do myself include singing, playing the piano, blogging, cooking, and running. I love an occasional good movie and I love shoes!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the center and foundation of who I am. I have a deep love and appreciation for my Savior Jesus Christ and his atoning sacrifice for me. The gospel of Jesus Christ just makes sense to me. As I was younger I relied on the faith of my parents, but as I grew I came to know for myself through study and prayer that this church was the true church on the Earth today. It has the fullness of the gospel and brings much hope and happiness through the Plan of Salvation. It teaches us that families can perpetuate beyond the grave. We can be families forever! I know our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ know each one of us personally. They are aware of our situations, our heartaches, and our joy. I have felt their unconditional love for me so many times in my life. I love the gospel and love to continue learning more and more each day. It is the greatest blessing in my life!

How I live my faith

There are many ways I choose to live my faith. Each Sunday our family attends our church services. There we are both taught and study the gospel which in turn helps build and strengthen our testimonies of the Savior. It is a wonderful place to learn each week. I pray to a loving Heavenly Father often who I can communicate with at any time. He is always there to listen, comfort and guide me. I study from the word of God. I find great direction in my life through the words of the scriptures. They have given me answers to questions and much needed comfort at times. I go to the temple. The temple is the house of the Lord, truly, it is! I feel his holy spirit each time I am there. It is the greatest house of learning and one of the greatest places to feel peace in this life. The greatest way I can live my faith is looking to the example of our Savior Jesus Christ and trying to follow in his footsteps. I know that if I am trying to be like him then I am headed in the right direction and for that I am grateful!
