Hi I'm Stephanie

I am a wife and a mother of 5 daughters. I LOVE surprises and celebrating holidays (even Groundhog Day). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life as a wife and mother include cooking, baking, gardening, harvesting fruits and vegetables, canning, beekeeping, teaching Joy School to preschoolers, playing at the park, photography, organizing and cleaning house, landscaping, reading, fun date nights, hiking, playing tennis, exercizing, shopping, blogging, and more!

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven! I had wonderful parents that taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ at a young age. As I grew up, I studied the scriptures and developed a personal relationship with my Father in Heaven and with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I came to recognize the feelings of the Holy Ghost as I grew up and knew He was guiding me. At the age of twelve I received a testimony of The Book of Mormon because when I finished reading it, I prayed and asked if it was true and I felt the Holy Ghost witness to me that it is true! Throughout my life I have felt the Holy Ghost witness to me when I have done something right or heard truth, which has consistantly helped in strengthening my testimony. Those feelings have been for me- joy, peace, a warm feeling in my heart, a warning, a sudden idea or answer to a prayer that I know was not my own! Staying close to the teachings of the gospel have kept me safe and given me so much joy! I know that our Heavenly Father loves us so much and wants us to be happy. I love sharing that joy and love with others.

How I live my faith

Each day I seek to do what the Lord would have me do and it has brought me such joy in my life! I have served as a missionary in Kiev, Ukraine and LOVED it. I have worked with young women for years and enjoyed my association with them. Most recently, I teach the adult Sunday School class from the Book of Mormon and have learned so much. As a mom, I am teaching my daughters daily on how to live a Christ-like life. I keep the commandments and try to be a good friend and neighbor to everyone and serve in small and simple ways that Christ would.
