Hi I'm Heidi

I grew up in Idaho. I am the third oldest of nine kids. I love to read, hike, sew, and be a mom and wife. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My life is full of adventures. I started babysitting at 8 yrs old, cleaning house for an elderly lady in our ward at 11 yrs old, and got married at 19 yrs old to a wonderful man. I became a mother at 22 yrs old to an amazing daughter. I have, so far, lived in 7 different states and lived at 17 different addresses since I became a wife. As a family we have felt like we are on our own type of mission. We have had the opportunity to be involved with the missionaries in each place we have lived. Teaching and sharing the Gospel with a variety of people. Each time we move we feel we are being "transferred" to a new area. We enjoy the opportunities of meeting new people and making new friends. We are working toward becoming foster parents. We have always wanted more children. I love learning about those around me. I love hearing their stories and adventures. People have so much to offer and bring to a moment. I enjoy striking up conversations with complete strangers and learning about what makes them happy. I like to make babies smile. I love to compliment random people and see the confusion on their faces "do I know her?" I miss my family. I am the third oldest of nine. My mom is the middle of seven. My dad is the second oldest of four. I have cousins I've never met and some I haven't seen in nearly two decades. I am grateful for modern technology to make it easier to keep in touch with so many people. I have wonderful parents - they have taught me so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been taught by righteous parents to love God and serve Him. I have chosen to stay active in the church and to raise my family with the same values and teachings because it is true. I have prayed. I have fasted. I have received my own personal witness from Heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's kingdom here on Earth.

How I live my faith

I have served in a variety of callings within the church. I have taught children, teenagers, and adults. I assisted, guided, and been taught by a large number of great people. I strive to attend church every Sunday and actively participate in church activities. Though I am not perfect and I have huge room for improvement I know that through fellowshipping one another we will become strong in our faith. Jesus Christ is real. He loves us and will bring us home to our Father in Heaven - we just have to let Him.
