Hi I'm Tracy

I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a person who believes today can be even better than yesterday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Southern California. Due to my husband's job, I have since moved to various places. I have enjoyed meeting new people and experiencing adventures in each new home. When I'm not busy entertaining my two young (and very active) children, I prefer spending my time creating artwork, which has turned into a small business. Selling my artwork online has given me the opportunity to interact with people around the world. I love knowing my creations are in the homes of families all over the globe.

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised in a Mormon home, I was surrounded by family and friends who shared a common faith in Jesus Christ. When I was 19 years old, I was living away from home attending college. I found that I was the only Mormon in my classes, if not the entire school! However, this provided numerous opportunities to answer the questions of my fellow classmates who wanted to know more about Mormonism. I studied my scriptures and prayed for the Lord's help because for the first time in my life, I was having to stand on my own as a representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I learned that it didn't matter that I was the only Mormon at my school because I had my own personaI faith in Jesus Christ, and I knew that His love would always be with me. I will be forever grateful for this experience.

How I live my faith

I was recently asked to serve as a Sunday school teacher for the teenage youth in our congregation. I have really enjoyed learning from them and understanding the difficulties they encounter on a daily basis as followers of Jesus Christ. I try to prepare my lessons in a way that will help them apply the teachings of Christ in their lives. I am amazed how easily ancient scriptures can be related to my own trials and experiences and those of my class.
