Hi I'm Yvette.

I just graduated from college and am now working to finance my husband's education. I live in Utah. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, daughter, sister, and friend- in that order. My family is very important to me. So much so that I spend all of my time, energy, and talents trying to become the best me. That way I can be what others need in the moment that they need it. Like I said earlier, I just finished my Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management. I have since entered the workforce to help provide for our family and although it is just my husband and I, we work hard everyday to pave the way for future additions (children). I love spending time with my husband, but when he is at school or studying at the library I like to spend time exercising. I recently started doing Zumba. I love aerobics because they allow me to enjoy another passion I have--cooking!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members and so I was born into this religion. When I was younger, I can honestly say that I took my religion for granted and why not? The church was all I had ever known. I grew up in a small town so not only were my parents and grandparents members of the church, but so were my friends, their parents, and their grandparents. There was a history of the church that coursed through my veins and not until my freshmen year of college was I forced to realize how lucky I had been my whole life. I noticed an obvious difference when I moved away from home, my parents, and my small town existence. I needed to make the right decision based on what I KNEW to be true. It didn't take me long to realize that conflict is inherent in life- this fact became my motivation and the primary reason for me to find answers. I had never been happier because this resolute ability, given to me by my Him, to live and choose for myself. A lot of time has passed since my freshmen year, but my decision to always look up is still in force. I love my Heavenly Father. I am grateful for his divine love for me. I know now how confident he is in my ability to choose the right. I am humbled by his trust- to live, marry, and then create and teach new life. I am grateful for families- for my family. I am grateful that God was willing to send His son to establish an example. It is merciful of him to leave the lines and only ask that we color inside them. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Every month I make it a priority to visit two sisters from my ward. It is interesting to become part of their lives and invite them to do the same as they become a part of mine- sharing stories, aiding in struggles that their family may be having, etc. I take brownies to church on Sundays and ask two couples to tell me a little about themselves so I can write up a short story about their life- hobbies, careers, aspirations, etc. so that the ward can get the know them better. I participate in community activities with members of my ward. I especially love to exercise with sisters from my ward. There is nothing like sweating with people you love! I love cooking and so when families in my ward are in need I love signing up to take them meals.
