Hi I'm Vicki

I am a wife, a mother of 5 children, a nurse, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Every day is a new adventure! I help my husband and children work on their goals in school, sports, and arts and music. I began re-learning the piano with my children and now I am learning to accompany children at church. I am a sewer. My favorite things to sew are quilts and dresses for my daughter. I used to run a business from my home doing alterations. My part-time work at the hospital and professionally is with mothers and babies. I love teaching childbirth classes and seeing the excitement new families have at that peak time of their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who are Mormons. They taught me good principles of honesty, obedience and faith in their home. I remember my dad asked the missionaries to our home to talk with one of his work friends. I sat quietly listening on the stairs where no one could see me. I heard the missionaries share their beliefs and knowledge. I wanted to know if the things they were talking about were true. I did as they recommended. I prayed. I asked God to let me know if Joseph Smith was a real prophet and if the vision he had of God and Jesus was true. I received an undeniable answer at a very young age. I know that God is our Heavenly Father. He sent his Son, Jesus Christ to earth to redeem us from our sins and mortal failings. Jesus is real. He is my Friend and Brother. I know that Joseph Smith learned of that reality in 1820. This leads to my conviction that God continues to speak to prophets today. I know the Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead. Sensing His influence in my life is a true lifeline. God is still in the details of my life. I pray daily for guidance, for peace in a troubled world. I receive answers to my prayers in small and meaningful ways. I know that God is watching out for me. Things are not always easy, but I know I have a source of help whenever I reach for it. Any person who is seeking divine help from Heavenly Father only needs seek and ask.

How I live my faith

I help in our children's parent teacher organizations. I am able to facilitate fundraising with box tops to help teachers get supplies for their classes. I accompany children at church during their singing time. Annually I assist with the Perinatal Professionals Consortium in Utah to provide a conference for continuing education.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is an ancient record of people who lived on the American Continent and their experiences with God. The Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith from golden plates. It is a miracle. It gives me insights about God's eternal plan for His children and how Jesus is our Savior. Show more Show less
