Hi I'm Aubrey

I love the outdoors, camping, crafting, education, and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised as a Latter-day Saint in Utah and grew up 5th of 6 kids. My wonderful parents worked hard to provide a comfortable home for us. My dad worked til 5 everyday and even though he was tired, he would come home only to find us kids waiting to play with him! He always took time to play with us. My mom would stay home and take care of the housework while raising and teaching us to be righteous. She was always so patient even when we got wild and crazy. My parents continue in the same paths today. Both my mom and dad are the biggest examples of how I picture my life. I know it wasn't cupcakes and rainbows for them all the time but they made it! That's what I want. I got married about 2 years ago to my adoring husband and we are both currently attending a University and striving to be the best we can be! I work full-time to support my husband and I and spend my spare time as a part-time student, outside camping or hiking, crafting, homemaking, and exercising.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because without this gospel I would be no where. I can't say that I've done anything in my life completely by myself, I've always had the Lord helping me. When I fail to chose the right I feel an instant separation from the Lord because He can't be with me if I'm making the wrong decisions. I've chosen to be a Mormon so that I can become Christ-like and one day return to live in His presence. I know that Heavenly Father gives aid and comfort. He loves all of His children and teaches us to be selfless and caring towards others. It's is for this reason I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In my ward I'm part of a committee called "Compassionate Service", meaning that we ask for and provide volunteers to do babysitting, bring meals to new mothers or for funerals, or to help any ward members move if necessary. It is a rewarding job because we are able to help many people this way and take some of their burdens away. I also do visiting teaching, which means that I and another woman go and visit 2 other sisters in our ward to be friends with them and help them with anything they may need, personal or not. We visit every month and take with us a short lesson about the gospel.
