Hi I'm Darci

I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother of three children. I feel like my days are spent mostly in the car running from one activity to the other. But honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. My children are a great joy and always keep me on my toes. Life is never boring. Having grown up in Washington and Oregon I am a huge Seattle Mariners fan. I have had the privilege of living all over our wonderful country thanks to the Air Force. I love the diversity of the landscape and the people living all over the United States. In my free time I enjoy reading. I like to be able to escape into a completely different world and read about all different kinds of characters.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both members of the church when I was born. I grew up going to church every Sunday because that is just what we did in our house. When I joined the Air Force I wasn't as active as I was living at home. However, when I started my own family I realized how much of a blessing the church was in my life growing up and I wanted those same blessings for my own children. I am a Mormon because I have prayed to my Heavenly Father to see if the teachings of this church are true. I have read the Book of Mormon and have followed the admonition given by Moroni (Moroni 10:4-5) to ask if it was true. I received a confirmation that both the teachings of the church and the Book of Mormon were true. I am truly grateful every day for the love of my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

At church I work with children between the ages of 18 months and 12 years. Our church congregation is pretty small and there are only about 10 children that are with us on a regular basis. I love working with the children on Sundays and seeing them grow in their faith. My community is very close-knit and my children and I can always find ways to serve from cleaning the beach to volunteering for our local park and recreation department. Being involved in the community and my children's schools is a great way for me to live my faith.
