Hi I'm Caley

I'm an Aussie. I married a Pommie. We live in Australia. I'm a new Mum and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Sydney. I lived, loved, breathed everything Sydney had to offer... including the International airport! I had a fantastic career in the radio/broadcasting industry followed by a stint in the music record industry. I dig a good gig or event...Infact I'd rather organise it than be a guest. That all changed the day I met my now husband. British husband might I add... I like to keep things abroad. I traded that old life in to become a full time Mum. It changed my life upside down, for the better... and I'm absolutely inlove with it. Family means more to me than any other thing in the world, closely followed by a good meal out.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm not a Mormon because I was born to Mormon parents, I'm a Mormon because I chose to be. I got baptised at the age of 8 years old but I truly found the love of Christ in my early 20's. It's no biggie really... Life is much simpler and lovelier being a Mormon, so that is simply why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Growing up, my Nan would volunteer at the local hospital once a week and one of my fondest memories was her taking me with her to volunteer in our spare time. I like to be given a task and follow through. Being of service to others is very important and a vital part of growth in one's life. Without it, we'd be pretty selfish and closed off! Not only do we help others when participating in kind acts of service, we also allow our lives to be touched with a much greater force, allowing love and kindness to encompass our hearts. Now who wouldn't want that? It's really a win win situation, no matter how big or small the act of service is.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Caley
Growing up in a Mormon family, being the youngest of 5 (with 3 older sisters), my parents knew how to raise daughters by the time I came along. Me on the other hand grew up in a fast paced, fashion flashy, media focused era. My parents weren't strict, however they were old fashioned when it came to females should dress ladylike, dress modestly and to Now that doesn't mean put on your stockings, pearls and lace collar every day, it simply meant as my Mum put it so nicely one day... "No man ever wants to see your arm pit, it's unattractive" and quite frankly it's true. Fashion these days, it's hard to buy outfits off the rack that have sleeves, tiny sleeves, any length sleeve. It's hard to find tops that flatter your arms, your bustline... and...It's even harder to find dresses that flatter your waist and thighs! Personally I know I don't want my thighs showing to the world and i'm your average shape/weight girl. The world seems to have an outlook at the moment that less is more. The only time I agree with that is in accessorising an outfit and home decorating. Show more Show less
