Hi I'm Angie

I grew up in Idaho. I have 8 children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 8 children, 5 biological and 3 adopted. I dislike laundry, and cleaning, but my life is full of both! :) My children range in age from 2-20 and we are a multi-racial family. I love being in a large family and I adore my kids. They certainly are challenging and have given me many gray hairs, but they bring me much joy. Our family gets many looks because we have different skin colors, but we like the attention and I love that my kids have learned that we are all brothers and sisters. I am super talkative and friendly and make new acquaintances wherever I go. This can really annoy my kids, but it makes me happy. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ, and in the Book of Mormon. I love being a Mormon. Being raised in the church, it has always seemed like "home" to me, but I still had to find out on my own that it was what I wanted to continue with in my life and with my own family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day just by taking each day at a time, and trying to do what is right. I don't know the answers to all gospel questions, and I certainly don't do everything perfectly, but I do have faith that trying to be kind and serve others will make us happy. I love that the Mormon church puts a large emphasis on serving others. I teach the music to the young children on Sundays and I really enjoy this job. It can be exhausting and I come home with no voice on Sundays, but I love it and I love the kids. You should know that I really can't sing or lead music, but I love the songs that we teach the children and I like to make it fun. We try to read scriptures and have prayer as a family every day. This is not always easy with the many different schedules in our household, but we feel that it is important.
