Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and a new mother. My son was born the day after Christmas in 2011. My husband and I agree that he's the greatest thing that has ever happened to us. I love being home with him and watching him grow and learn new things. He's adorable. I graduated from college with a degree in history, but after college I decided to continue doing cake decorating, which is what I did to sustain myself during college. I really enjoy creating beautiful cakes and I love the look on someone's face when they see the cake I made for them, as well as their expression when they taste it. Some of my other hobbies and interests include running, snowboarding, waterskiing, knitting, crocheting, and cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a faithful LDS family and I grew up in Utah in a neighborhood that was mostly LDS. I've always felt very fortunate to have grown up under the circumstances that I did. Even though I was taught the gospel and the doctrines of the church from a very young age, when I became a teenager I had a desire to know for myself if it was all true. I believed it was, but I wanted to be more sure. I continued going to church meetings regularly and I studied the scriptures (particularly the Book of Mormon). I prayed several times to know the truth. I received several small witnesses from the Holy Spirit that confirmed to me that it was, in fact, true. One occasion was while I was praying after having read from the Book of Mormon. I felt very good inside and I felt that God was telling me that He loved me and that I was on the right path. It was shortly after this that I really came to recognize how the Holy Ghost witnesses truth to us. And I recognized that I felt the Spirit when I was at church, when I was reading the scriptures, when I prayed, when I was doing service for someone, and when I heard someone testify that they know the gospel and the church is true. My knowledge of the gospel and it's truth has continued to increase with time and I continue to treasure the moments when I feel the Spirit confirm the truth to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow the example that the Savior set for us through His life here. I try to be of service to others and to help them in any way that I can. I try to do my best in whatever thing I am asked to do at church. I am currently helping with the scouts (the Wolves), and I really enjoy spending time with them and teaching them. I also live my faith through doing my best to keep God's commandments. I'm definitely not perfect in doing these things, and that's why I'm so thankful for Christ's atonement, making it possible for us to return to live with Him someday.
