Hi I'm Stephanie Sill

I'm a wife, a mom, a photographer and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Some of my earliest childhood memories are of playing house & dolls with my cousins. From a very young age, my aunt would always tell me that "one day you will be the best mommy". I really always felt that & knew one day it would come true. Garrett & I have been married for 17 years & we have been blessed with four amazing children. Now, whenever I see my aunt, she reminds me that I was meant for this divine role. I feel blessed to be living my dreams everyday. I am a wife to an amazing man who serves others & lives his life by following the promptings of the spirit. He seeks out opportunities to teach our children the gospel of Jesus Christ in everyday situations. He works hard as a CFO, as a fly fishing guide, as our boys' hockey coach, as the bishop of our ward & as my date on the weekends...well, that parts not too hard:) I cherish my role as wife & mom more than I ever have! I love capturing a moment in time through photography. I know the importance of following a prompting & serving others. My kids tease me because I can't ever get through reading a story from 'The Friend' magazine without crying. I believe there is something to be said in being kind & I try to live my life according to a quote by Camilla Kimball..."To say something nice to someone takes nothing away from us, but what it gives to that person is invaluable." I love that! As a woman and mom in the gospel, I want to be a light to my family & those I meet each day...I want to shine forth. I am so blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family with goodly parents who taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ by example and the way they served others and continue to serve. I have always known that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true. I can't think back to a time when I gained my testimony because it seems I've always had one. From a young age, I've felt the spirit testify to me of truths and warn me of danger. I've been blessed with a simple testimony but one that is sure and steadfast. I feel the spirit deeply and easily. I've always tried to be obedient to the commandments and I strive each day to be the best I can be. I love looking forward to General Conference when I can hear from prophets and apostles of God for guidance on how to live my life and how to teach my children and help them gain their own testimony. Because I am a member of The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I know that I am a daughter of God, a daughter of a King. I know I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and hears my prayers and truly answers them. I know the Book of Mormon is true because I've read it and have knelt in prayer to ask my Heavenly Father of its truthfulness and felt the peace that it is. I feel blessed to know these things. I feel blessed to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

As I grow in the gospel and try each day to become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ, I realize the importance of seeking inspiration, receiving guidance and following a prompting. I feel deeply the invitation to act on behalf of my Savior, to be His hands because I know that each act of love offered changes us and those we serve. As a soccer, cheer, dance, volleyball, hockey, lacrosse and piano mom, life can get pretty crazy, but I don't ever want to be too busy to miss the quiet promptings or revelations that might come to me. I need this inspiration every day to guide me as I teach my family, as I love them and as I serve in my Heavenly Father's kingdom as a young women leader. I know visiting teaching can change lives. I know it is patterned after the manner of the priesthood and that through visiting teaching, I am able to share my testimony and come close to sisters that I might not have the opportunity to know and love. I cherish my role as a visiting teacher because I am given the stewardship of watching over and loving a friend or neighbor...and that is why we are here, to watch over and take care of each other.
