Hi I'm Coretta

I'm a mother of four, a tatter, a biker, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a large family where I milked cows, gathered eggs and worked on old cars and mothered litters of kittens. I got out of mowing lawns since I am allergic to grass... In between getting my Associates and Bachelors degrees I married. I remember when I met my spouse I called my dad and told him he had a motorcycle, my dad joked that he must be a good one then. I am trained in visual art, typography and graphic design, but get to stay home with our four young children who grow older every day. I love to tat not the ink kind but the thread kind, write poetry, create in all forms and play. I enjoy riding the motorcycle with my husband and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know it's true. The Holy Spirit has testified of its truthfulness time and time again in my life. When my baby was diagnosed with cancer, when I prayed about the Book of Mormon, when I met my spouse, when I chose what to do at a crossroads in life, when I ask for help, when I teach my children simple truths, when I listen to the living prophet and apostles speak, when things are hard, when things are awesome, every time I get on my knees and sincerely communicate with God. I might have been raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints but I still consider myself a convert. My faith is my own, worked for and won by faith and diligence.

How I live my faith

Each day I try to teach my children faith, and the virtues of living a clean life, the joy that comes from being obedient to God's laws and the freedom it gives us to fully enjoy all His creations and fulfill our individual purpose on this Earth. I try to interact with others always in a positive manner so I can "leave people better than I found them" (Marvin J. Ashton). I strive to be a positive example and a force for good in all the little things. I serve as a leader to the young women in my ward. It's great to share my testimony with them and learn from them since I still feel so young myself. I also get to provide them opportunities to babysit when I want to be an adult. :)
