Hi I'm Audri

I love music, the outdoors, and communication studies. I'm a full-time wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! I'm Audri and am a proud wife, mother, daughter, and sister. I grew up as the oldest of 6 siblings in a farming/ranching community in northern AZ. Growing up, I learned to love music, volleyball, working hard at whatever I decide to do, and building relationships with those around me. I went on to continue my education after high school, where after 3 years I met my husband. We married not long after meeting and were expecting our first little boy a few months later. I'm now privileged to stay home with my little boy and am finishing my BS in Communications online through Arizona State University.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon in part because I've known that God is real from the time I was small. As I grew older, I studied and prayed more about God and his plan. I came to know the truth of the Book of Mormon, of the organization that Christ placed upon the earth during His time here including prophets and apostles, and of the atonement of Jesus Christ. As I came to know all of these things in my mind, my heart was also touched by the Spirit as a witness of the truth.

How I live my faith

I work with the young women ages 12-13 in our ward, which means I teach a class on Sundays and help organize activities for every Wednesday night. I love helping the young women grow in their faith and knowledge of the Gospel as well as building confidence in themselves.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Family relationships can last forever—not just for this life. Just as some of life’s sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. Jesus Christ gave power to His disciples to seal families together forever when He said, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). Death does not need to be the end of our relationships with cherished loved ones. The Lord revealed to Joseph Smith that the “same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there [in eternity], only it will be coupled with eternal glory” (Doctrine and Covenants 130:2). Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. These ordinances seal a husband and wife together for all eternity and children to their parents as an eternal family. (See: “The Family: A Proclamation to the World”) Show more Show less
