Hi I'm Joni

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love that I have the opportunity to be a wife and a mother! When I'm not home helping with homework or running kids to their different activities, I get to work with my husband at our sub sandwich shop. Life keeps us busy, but when I find some extra time, I look forward to spending it on date night with my husband, playing games with my family, going on family vacations, playing the piano, reading, or working outside on my landscape and garden. (Who knew the dry, Arizona desert could produce so many weeds!)

Why I am a Mormon

What a blessing it is to be a Mormon and know why I am here and who I am to become! Through the power of the Holy Ghost, I know I have a loving Heavenly Father who has a plan for me! He hears and answers my prayers and reminds me that I am never alone. And because God loves me and each of us, He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to not only show us the way to live our life with service and love, but through His atonement and resurrection, we can repent and overcome spiritual and physical death. I know through the power of the Holy Ghost that Christ's church has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of our Savior Jesus Christ. I notice a big difference in the happy and peaceful atmosphere of our home, as we faithfully read and apply it’s teachings. I know that Jesus Christ leads and directs His church through His living prophet of God today, President Thomas S. Monson. As I have come to understand these things and gain a personal witness of the truths of the Gospel, I have a desire to teach and help my children and all those I come in contact with, to know these things for themselves. We live in a time where there is confusion and chaos all over the world, where people are unsure where to find meaning in life and peace in these troubled times. The glorious news of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ can bring us comfort and joy even in hard times!

How I live my faith

Everyday, I am continually striving to live my life in way that when others see me, I reflect joy and peace because of my faith in my Father in Heaven and in His son, Jesus Christ.
