Hi I'm Miriam

I grew up on a semi-farm in Virginia. I'm married to United States airman and soon to be a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Brigham Young University several years ago and since then have spent most of my time working with young children, often with disabilities. I'm now a wife to a man serving in the United States Air Force and I am soon to be a mother to a baby girl! I enjoy reading, doing craft projects, and going for walks.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converts to the church when they were in college. As a child I was raised in the Mormon faith and taught about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Growing up in my family we would read the scriptures together and say family prayer every night. I saw the examples my parents set of living a Christ-like life and this really helped to secure my testimony in the truthfulness of the gospel teachings. As I got older and moved away from home it became very important to me to know for myself if the things I had been taught were true. I remember being a freshman in college and reading from the Book of Mormon and then praying about it to know if it was true. My answer was very clear that yes it was true and that I knew it was as I had been taught for many years. Upon having that sure confirmation I felt that I wanted to share it with my friends and those around me. I have seen so much good and had so many blessings come from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love that the church is the same everywhere I go, and I know that no matter where I am I can always find a friend in the gospel.

How I live my faith

I do my best to remember what I believe in and stand for and try to go through each day living the principles and values I believe in. I try to find ways to help out my friends, family, and those around me through service and prayer. Most recently I was serving in the primary by teaching the 3 year old class. I currently serve by helping with visiting teaching where I go and visit a couple of women in the ward every month and help them should they need support or assistance.
