Hi I'm Agaytha

Hi. I am wife to Kevin, and mother to Jeremy, Aleesha, Aubrey, Laurel, and Shannon. I'm a homemaker, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was never good at sports, but I was good at music. I play the piano and sing; all our children do, too, and my husband sings barbershop. I also enjoy drawing and embroidery, crosstitch, and crochet. I learned to sew at 13 and majored in Fashion Design. It sure came in handy with 4 girls and their prom dresses! I love to read, and watch old movies with my kids. I hate to cook--would rather be doing anything else. But our kids never starved and my hubby is a great cook, so it's ok. We now have 9 grandchildren, soon to be 10, and they are super. I have arthritis, and so it's hard to do all I want to do, but I'm grateful to still be moving. I have a list a mile long of projects. :) I live in a big blue house with lots of trees and a garden, and I feel so blessed every day of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother and father joined the church a few years before I was born. So I grew up with all the gospel teachings from birth. I was baptized at 8, and my testimony has grown steadily, nourished by loving parents and wonderful teachers. I knew from early on that I am a daughter of God, and that he loves me without reservation--enough to send his son to redeem the world and make it possible for me to repent of my sins, and draw closer to him every day. I could never thank him enough for this. Even the very air that I breathe comes from his goodness. These feelings have strengthened

How I live my faith

I've shared my love of music by teaching piano over 20 years. I love it. I also love teaching sewing skills. I dearly love to create, so I love watching others learn to create. Teaching brings me much joy, whether it's practical skills, artistic skills, or my love of the Savior. I am the president of our church's young women's auxiliary, and love to work with them in preparation for going to college, studying the gospel, or learning to be homemakers and mothers. My mom will be 95 next month, and her teachings will live on in many young ladies and not a few young men. :) They are fixing to learn how to throw a big party because we're in charge of the Christmas dinner and show. There is seldom a dull moment around our house. We simply haven't had time to be empty nesters, and I love it.
