Hi I'm Hillary

I currently live in Madison, Wisconsin. Mother of one and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4, and grew up moving a lot. I love to play the Piano and shop. After meeting my husband we moved to Wisconsin, where after fertility treatments we were blessed with our little boy. We are about to move to Seattle so my husband can get his Masters in Business Administration.

Why I am a Mormon

The Plan of Salvation has helped me throughout my life. It answers the question who we are, where are we go and why are we here. I cant imagine living here without the knowledge that I am a child of God, and that I will return to him again. During the challeneges in life it also offers the big picture. That we can take a step back and realize that this pain or discouragement is just a moment. It may not seem that way now, but when you think of the problem and think when I am with God will living paycheck to paycheck really matter? I hope the answer is no. I then can think what am I supposed to learn from this and how can I endure it well? I love that I know that I will see my family again once they die. That it is not a question in my ind, where they go and wondering if i will see them again. It just a matter of when I will see them again. I love the family and support I have in this church. Being far from family it is nice to know that when I go to church there are people that believe the same things as me and will be come my new family while I live far away.

How I live my faith

Scripture study is important to me, I try to read every day, with a baby that is sometimes difficult. I dont just read from the Book of Mormon, I think it is important to read from the Bible as well. This last year I studied the book of Isaiah, it was a big task and many chapters had stumped me, but it was very rewarding. Before I had a baby my husband and I were Den Leaders for Cub Scouts. We had fun planning activites together and interacting with 8 year old boys.
