Hi I'm Nancy Persons

I'm a mom to 4 great girls, I'm a native Arizonan, I teach special kids and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a great family with 7 siblings and awesome parents in Phoenix, AZ. I love to spend time with my family. I have 4 awesome girls, 3 teens and 1 pre-teen. I am the mother of a very special spirit with multiple handicaps. I am a special education teacher to preschool-aged children. I love to cook, sew, paint, build things, spend time in Afton, WY during the summer and water ski with my family. I stay busy with family, church and work. Life is great.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe it is Christ's true church on the earth in these latter-days. I have come to know through personal spiritual experiences and by the power of the Holy Ghost that the LDS faith is true and that the Book of Mormon is sacred scripture given by God to help us return to him if we follow it's teachings. I would not be the person that I am today if I had not been taught by goodly parents to read scriptures daily, have personal and family prayer, choose the right and obey God's commandments. I have a tesitmony that my Savior, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of my loving Heavenly Father, atoned for my sins and died on the cross for me that I may live again. I believe Families Are Forever and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I currently work as the leader of the women's organization in my ward. I am the relief society president. Relief Society is the largest organization of women in the world. We love and support one another and other's in our community through compassionate service. I try to be an example for good to my family, friends and neighbors. I attend sunday services and weekday acitivites while striving to become more like my Savior.
