Hi I'm Valerie

I am the mother of 5 and a lawyer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an avid reader and try to live an active lifestyle. I love tennis, hiking and snow skiing. I have a law degree and passed the bar exam in two states but have not ever worked in that profession. I have been blessed to stay at home with our 5 children. I always wanted to be a lawyer. What I didn't realize was how much I would enjoy being a full time mom. I have never regretted that decision.

Why I am a Mormon

Living in the middle of the bible belt has exposed us to some of the most amazing, special christian families in the country, people who live their religion and truly try to live Christlike lives. Socially, it would be easier to belong to one of the local protestant churches that our many friends call home. However, the light and knowledge that I have received as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has forever changed me. I cannot deny the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, nor the existence of a living prophet. Living our faith is not always popular or easy but standing as a witness for Christ and His Church is both my privilege and my duty.

How I live my faith

I teach a sunday school class of the most amazing 16-18 year olds. My husband is the Bishop and I spend a lot of time taking phone messages and supporting him in his various responsibilities.
