Hi I'm Nancy

I'm a psychologist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a psychologist in private practice. I love meeting people and helping them with their journey through this life. I am single and enjoy the opportunity that gives me to participate in the lives of my friends and family. It also allows me time to devout to my dog to help her realize her potential, and to have an interesting and joyous existence. Living in a large city allows me a vibrate environment to live, work, and play. My favorite season is summer. The warm sunshine, beautiful vegetation, and opportunites to do so many wonderful things, is something I look forward to every year.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Catholic. Growing up I felt a strong spiritual connection to God, and had a number of pivitol spiritual experiences. I soon begin to feel a disparity between what I felt spiritually and the doctrine that was being taught. I knew by 1st grade that Catholicisim was not the right church. I began to ask my friends if I could visit their churches. After each visit, I crossed off that religion as I knew when I attended that it was not the right one. In high school, I spent my spare time reading about Mormonism. I had checked out about 20 books, including the Book of Mormon, from my high school library. At some point, I wanted to speak with the missionaries. I tried to find them, and even tried to chase them down one afternoon when they were out on their bikes. Being unsuccessful in finding the missionaries myself, I prayed that they would come to my house. The next day I looked out the window and saw the missionaries walk past my house. At first I was alarmed thinking they were passing me by; however I immediatedly felt a spiritual assurance that they would come. I was waiting near the window watching, and soon saw them return and approach my house. When I answered the door, they introduced themselves as missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. I told them that I knew, and that I had been waiting for them. They taught me the things I needed to learn, and met with for about a year and a half. Although I was ready to join the Church and received a strong confirmation of the validity of the Book of Mormon, I was only 16 1/2 at the time, and my parents would not give me permission to join the Church. I was baptized a couple of wks after my 18th birthday. I have had a marvelous spiritual journey, and am grateful for a Heavenly Father that knows who were are, where we are, and provides a pathway to the truth.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to organize events at church. Some of my favorite events involve including the community to help plan and be a part of the activities. Seeing how we are all connected for good and furthing God's work through mutual collaboration and respect is truly inspiring.
