Hi I'm Heather Bowman

I am happily married with four children. I am a registered nurse, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Kansas where I first heard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have lived all across the United States and in Brazil. I met my husband online and together we have four children. I am a Registered Nurse and feel blessed and honored to be able to help individuals during very difficult times in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was 13 years old. My mother worked for the only Mormon in our little rural town. She appreciated how important family life was to them and how close they were. When she inquired what made them so different the reply was the gospel of Jesus Christ. My mother ordered a Book of Mormon off of the television, read it and was amazed by what she had learned. She invited the missionaries to our home to learn more. Our family began learning from the missionaries. Right away I felt a difference when they entered our home. It was a very peaceful loving feeling that I wanted to have all of the time. The more I learned the more my questions were answered and I knew what they were teaching was true. I was baptized with my mother, and four months later my father and brother were baptized. It made all the difference in our family.

How I live my faith

This church is a church of service. There are countless opportunities to serve our neighbors every day. I believe every person on this earth is a child of our Heavenly Father and deserves to be treated with respect, dignity, and love. I serve in the church as one of the leaders in the women's organization called Relief Society. In this organization we celebrate the divine calling of womanhood, look for ways to assist both our members and those in our community.
