Hi I'm Angela

I'm a proud Mom of three and a military spouse. We have moved around a lot. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some would call me an "average" Mormon. I was born in Utah and went to BYU for my undergraduate degree. However, I have moved around a lot and have learned that there really is no such thing as an "average" Mormon! We come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and ethicities with a wide range of interests. I am a mother of three girls (almost all teenagers now--scary) and the wife of a military doctor-hence the moving around a lot! I studied history and international relations in college with an emphasis on the Middle East. I love to read, paint and debate politics (I am proudly Independant). I hope to learn Arabic someday and help the Church grow in that area. I love to travel. And while I have learned that the members themselves are varied, I am blessed to have the Church be the same wherever we go.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have been a member for all of my life, I had to gain a testimony for myself...and I have. To me, the Gospel makes perfect sense. While the world is stumbling around trying to find the answers to life's questions and morals, the answers are easily available. We know why we are here, what we are supposed to do, and how we can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by my daily actions-prayers, scripture reading, serving others and being a good example. However, our church is so much more than that! We have meetings every Sunday and usually during the week as well. We are all expected to serve (without being paid) in our church. I have had many jobs over the years but currently I am helping to teach the youth in our congregation. In today's world, the youth need all the help they can get in order to overcome all of the evil temptations that surround us in our society.
