Hi I'm Petra

I grew up in the Netherlands. I love teaching young people. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a single mum to 4 beautiful children. I love reading, walking, swimming and spending time with my children and my friends. I love working with children in education, which is why I became a Teaching Assistant. Although being a single parent can be very challenging, I love being a mum and being able to raise my children to take their place in today's society.

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't always a Mormon. I was baptised when I was 19. Becoming a Mormon has shaped my life and has helped me become the person I am today. My life today has purpose, meaning and direction all because I know I am a child of God and have a Heavenly Father who loves me. Being a Mormon is helping me to be the best mum I can be and to teach my children values and standards that will help them stand tall in today's world. I love the simplicity of the Gospel message....of the love Heavenly Father has for me and all of his children and the love that the Saviour has for me. By living my life according to His teachings and showing my love in return I know will be blessed beyond measure.

How I live my faith

Each day I try to live my life according to the Saviour's example. I treat others the way I would like to be treated myself, showing kindness and love to those around me. For many years now I have taught the youth in my church ward which I really enjoy. I love sharing the teachings of Jesus with them and helping them to build their faith on His teachings.
