Hi I'm Vicki

I really wanted to be a mom, so I adopted a baby & had fertility treatments to help me have 3 more kids. I am a Mormon

About Me

I have been married for almost 20 years to my high school sweet heart. We are the parents of two girls and two boys, ranging from the ages of 7-15 years old. My days include making lunches (heaven forbid my kids buy school lunch), driving carpool to dance, cross country, guitar, baseball and dance again (thank goodness our piano teacher comes to my house), laundry (when everyone is out of clothes), and cleaning bathrooms (only when I can't get my kids to do it). I LOVE to spend time with my family. Especially in the summers on our boat. We also like to play games and watch movies together. I try to exercise almost daily, (mostly so I can eat chips and queso and still fit into my clothes), with my good friend who is Catholic. I also like to work on my kids scrapbooks with my sisters-in-law and mom, take pictures of my four kids, volunteer in the kids classrooms, take long naps on Sunday afternoons, and go to lunch with my girlfriends.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it helps make me a better wife, mom and friend. I was born in the Church, but gained a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on my own. I remember reading the Book of Momron for the first time when I was 15 years old. I prayed that I would know that what I was reading was true, and I felt peace that assured me that the church was true. When our family discusses the Book of Mormon or other mormon doctrine, I teach my kids that they need to find out if what I am teaching is true. I can tell them all about how to be a mormon, but they must gain their own testimony. I am grateful for the values, guidelines, doctrine and spirit the church provides in my every day life. It gives me direction and helps me be a better person.

How I live my faith

I struggle every day to be better at living my faith. I try to pray every morning to see what Heavenly Father's plan is for me for that day and then follow His promptings. I volunteer as the president of our church's womens group (140 women) and love to serve and learn from them each day. I also volunteer in my kids' school weekly. I strive to read the Book of Mormon or Bible daily to learn from Christ's examples on how to treat my family, friends and neighbors. I mostly try to live my faith by being like Christ to all those around me.
