Hi I'm Angela

I grew up in West Virginia, but am enjoying being a stay at home mom here in Kentucky.

About Me

I was born and raised in West Virginia into an active mormon family. I have lived many places around the United States, but hope to call Kentucky home for many years to come with my husband and two children. I love to travel and spend time outdoors running, hiking, camping or just hanging out. I am currently at home with my kids full time, but hope to use my marketing degree again someday when the kids are a tad older.

Why I am a Mormon

Members of my family have been mormon for over 8 generations - since the earliest days of the church. I am proud of my mormon heritage and all that each generation has done to live as righteous examples of Christ, amidst persecution and misunderstandings. My parents grew up in predominantly mormon communities in Utah and Idaho, but due to schooling and jobs ended up raising their family in West Virginia. It was a wonderful place to grow up, but being mormon was not commonplace, and I was often teased for my beliefs. Even though certain comments or questions may have been hurtful at the time, it stretched me and taught me how to find answers. Most importantly, it taught me that there are answers to tough questions and that they are worth searching for. I found for myself through study and prayer that there was something special about my beliefs and that even though it might seem odd to others, I knew in my heart that they were true teachings that would lead me closer to my Savior and Heavenly Father. In the years that have passed, I learned that believing something that is perceived as different isn't necessarily a bad thing. The peace, happiness, knowledge and understanding that my beliefs bring me far outweigh the random comments and misperceptions. I am so grateful to have found answers that deepen my relationship with diety and provide a clearer understanding about what this life is really all about.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways. I support my local congregation by teaching a monthly lesson to the women of the church. I also strive to reach out and love and serve those in my congregation, whether it's making a meal, watching someone's kids, taking a friend to the doctor, or visiting friends. I also live my faith by striving to pray daily and study from the scriptures daily. I may not broadcast to the world that I am Mormon, but it truly is at the core of who I am, and I am happy to share my faith when approached.
