Hi I'm April

I grew up in the Southern US. I'm a single Mom, Social Worker and am pursuing a PhD in Psychology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single mother. I put my self through school to become a Social Worker. I learned through two abusive marriages that my Father wants us to love each other and love ourselves. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in psychology. I'm also the Single Adult representative for my Ward. My only son will graduate next year, then go on a mission. I think Heavenly Father is preparing me for the next phase of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager many of my friends attended church, but not many attended my Church. I am blessed that my parents respected me enough to allow me the freedom to investigate any church I desired. I attended many churches. As I did, I discovered other churches were missing parts of the truth I'd come to know and believe. As I attended an early morning scripture study, my understanding of the scriptures and the Gospel increased. I read the scriptures and prayed to know if they are true. I remember praying to know if the Book of Mormon is true. I prayed and as I lay pondering the Spirit whispered to me with a warm feeling that the Book of Mormon is true. I seemed to always know the Gospel is true. I've always known my Heavenly Father loves me. I feel so much peace now knowing that I can repent and give all my pain to the Savior. I know He loves me and wants me to share his love with everyone around me!

How I live my faith

I try to find opportunities to serve in the community. Recently I've been helping a neighbor with a food pantry at her church. I enjoy doing something I know helps others. I truly believe we are Heavenly Father's hands. I love the Gospel, it is what guides me through life. I feel very blessed to know the love of my Heavenly Father and Savior. I strive to be a good example by being a good friend and keeping the commandments.
