Hi I'm Whitney

I'm a nurse, wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born and raised here in Utah, I've been blessed to be surrounded by those that share my faith. But I can honestly say that there were times I doubted and questioned my faith which has given me the testimony I have today! I went to Utah State University where I met my husband and experienced some of the best years of my life. We were married in 2010 in the Draper, Utah LDS temple. In 2012 I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelors degree in Nursing and had our first baby girl shortly after. I am currently working as a Registered Nurse on a Maternity unit a few days a week where i get to help new moms and babies. I enjoy my job, but being a mother and staying home with my baby girl is what's most important to me. She has brought is so much happiness and reminds us all the time of what life is really about!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because i was born into a family that was Mormon, but because i have doubted, questioned and searched to know for myself if this church was true. And It is! I have felt it. I believe it. I know it. There have been countless times when the Holy Ghost has given me a sense of peace and truthfulness of this gospel like during a moving talk in General Conference, while looking up at the stars at night, or experiencing the miracle of birth with our daughter. There is so much more to our existence than this life here on earth. I know families are forever, and that the family is ordained of God. My family is everything to me. I know God lives. I don't know where he is, but I know he is there. He knows us and loves us. I know the prophet Joseph Smith said what he saw is true and undeniable. I know the leaders of our church today are called by God and know what they are talking about when they give us instruction in these latter days. I know that this life here on earth is short and temporary and that the materialistic things of life are of little worth. I'm thankful for my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because of the purpose of life it gives me and the peace and happiness it brings to my family and I!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday. I serve as a teacher once a month to the women of our ward. I am Visiting Teacher to three amazing women and try to visit with them monthly. My husband and I love the temple and have the privilege of going often and try to attend every month. We constantly strive to pray and read the scriptures daily.
