Hi I'm Tracie

I am a mother of five children. My family and I moved abroad to have an adventure of a lifetime.

About Me

I am a mother of five children. I enjoy time with family and reading a good book. I also enjoy running, the outdoors, and staying in touch with family. Since moving abroad, I have enjoyed exploring our new surroundings with my family. We have dined at Ramadan feasts, dune bashed in the desert, and played in the warm water of the Arabian Gulf. The best part of our international experience has been the amazing people we have met from all over the world. They have touched our lives as we have learned about their cultures and witnessed the good lives they lead.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I want to follow his example and I know happiness is found by following his teachings. In a world of shifting values, I am grateful for the standards taught at church. I feel I am raising my children in a way that will lead them to happy and purposeful lives. I know our family will progress beyond this life together. I think for me, this is one of the most beautiful promises of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith at home. I feel my family growing closer together as we kneel in family prayer morning and night and as we study the scriptures together each morning. Learning together daily sets a tone of peace in our home. It's not always perfect, but we have felt priceless benefits flow into our lives because of it. I attend church each week with my family. My calling is to provide activities for the 8 to 11 year olds that will help them learn to live gospel principles. It is fulfilling to serve others and see their lives change as they learn to live the teaching of Jesus Christ. As I do this, I am changed, even amidst the challenges of live, and my life becomes beautiful.
