About Me

I graduated from college earlier this year. I graduated with a double major. I majored in Human Development and Family Studies and Psychology. I love working with children and hope to be able to for a career. Most of all I hope to someday be a wife and a mother. I enjoy reading. I enjoy reading lds romance fiction books, historical fiction books, and I also like the Harry Potter series. I enjoy listening to music. I like country and pop. My favorite artists are David Archuleta, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, and Josh Groban. I also enjoy watching old movies and t.v. shows. My two favorite t.v. shows are Emergency! and Dr. Quinn. I have always wanted to travel around Europe but have never had the chance. I hope to be able to do so someday. I want to start scrapbooking. I love my family and my dogs and enjoy spending time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a 3rd generation member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). I was brought up in the church. My parents have taught me our church's beliefs my whole life. I have gone to church my whole life and have been taught the gospel by word and example. I have not had anything really big happen to me to make me believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's only true church on the earth today it has been by a lot of smaller things. I have felt that Holy Ghost touch my heart on many instances. I have felt the Holy Ghost when reading the Book of Mormon. I have felt the Holy Ghost when hearing others share their testimonys or when people have taught the beliefs of our church. I have a testimony most of all of Jesus Christ. I believe he is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that Joseph Smith restored God's true church and that he translated the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is scripture from God and that it was written by God's prophets. I know that if people read the Book of Mormon with an open mind and heart that they can come to know that it is true and gain a testimony of their own. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints blesses people's lives.

How I live my faith

I think the way I live my faith the most is by my example. I am by no means perfect but I try my best to live what I believe. In my ward I have spent most of my adult life working with the children. I spent 6 years teaching children ranging in age from 18 months to 6 years. I recently was called to teach adults in a Sunday school class. I have also done visiting teaching (going to women's homes in the neighborhood and visiting with them) for most of my adult life. At first I went to a nursing home with my mom and visited some women. I now go with a sister in my ward and visit some women in our neighborhood. I try to do service for others in need whether it be raking leaves or shoveling snow for elderly neighbors or babysitting for others even if they can't pay me.
