Hi I'm Betty

I am a wife, mother of four, business owner, fitness enthusiast, our Stake's Young Women President. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Raised in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Moved to Cedar City, Utah while in High School. I studied at Ricks College where I earned an Associates Degree in Physical Education. I furthered my educational experience at The Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies in Jerusalem, Israel. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education from Southern Utah University where I also met and married my eternal companion in the Saint George, Utah Temple. We have one beautiful daughter and three very handsome sons. I own and manage a vacation rental property. I enjoy family and friends, running, teaching fitness classes, eating breakfast, photography, laughing, and being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church in Mesa, Arizona before I was born. They lived next to another young couple, the husband happened to be a new seminary teacher. I'll be forever indebted to that dear couple, who we still keep in touch with and love today. How can you ever thank your parents for finding and raising you in truth and righteousness? How can you ever repay the sacrifices made on your behalf? My parents are currently "paying it forward" by serving a full-time mission in Helsinki, Finland. I am a Mormon because I know for myself that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ here on the earth today. I feel it with my whole being.

How I live my faith

I have received the blessings of the temple. I go there regularly. The temple is a sanctuary from the world, a place of peace and learning. I live my faith my attending the temple, keeping the ordinances that I entered into there sacred and of greatest importance. I also live my faith through serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I currently serve as the Stake Young Women's President. I have the opportunity and privilege to lead and associate with hundreds of our Heavenly Father's choice daughters. I find great happiness and blessings through my service.
