Hi I'm Dari

I'm a mother of four, a stay at home mom; a noble calling...and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am currently a mother of 4 children. I am a stay at home mom, while my husband goes to school full time and also supports his family. So for right now, I am a single mom... I am a "finisher"... I like things done to my best ability. I am passionate about the following: *Teaching my children about Christ and scriptures *having a home filled with the Spirit *feeding my family nutrition and wholesome food *genealogy *serving in my calling *creating~hair, food, garden, lawn, sewing, home decor, art, music... I am in a nutshell, someone who loves to create and takes great pleasure in it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. So for me, it was something that was always there, never changing. I never doubted what was wrong or right. I always knew that I was a child of God, and that my Heavenly Father loved me. As a young child, I knew where my life would go, and what I would do. My faith never wavering. As I grew older, my family fell apart and I became a less active member of the LDS Church. I met my husband when I was 18, a year later we were married. There became a point in my life where I had to choose the pathway I would follow for the rest of my life. It was two very clear roads in my mind, it was take a left hand turn and live a life of pleasure and live "my" life the way I saw was best for the moment. Or take a right hand turn and be an instrument in the Lord's hands. To raise a righteous family, and to serve others and be 'truly' happy. It did not take me long to decide, I wanted to take the path on the right. I wanted to be 'happy' and raise my family so that we could be together for eternity. I wanted to teach my children to be... all that I had known and felt as a child. I wanted to give to my family to be... all that was good, wholesome and righteous. I wanted a Christ-centered life, to pattern my life after His life, to be like Him. I essentially chose to take the path that took me towards Christ. 16 years later, I know that I was guided in this direction by a loving Heavenly Father. That he always loved me through the good and the bad times in my life. I know he knows who I am and he loves me as an individual, my life without the gospel would be hard, blank and empty. I am filled with joy everyday because of the pathway I have chosen for my family and generations to come.

How I live my faith

I am a leader in a woman's organization. I help serve others in my area, those who are sick, lonely, or who may need support in other areas. We meet every Sunday as Woman, and discuss issues that can help us become closer to Christ. We also meet once a month, and teach other woman how to cook, sew, service, help on staying organized, finances, etc... we also bring in speakers that help inspires us to do better. Our monthly meetings foster friendship and love, and everyone is welcome to come and partake of what we have to offer. I also visit other woman in my area and share with them a spiritual message once a month. I serve them, and help them in their personal needs. I am someone they can talk to, or someone they can call if they need assistance or help with their children. In my home, we gather once a week for a Christ centered lesson. We teach our children about being good mothers, fathers, citizens, and how important it is to serve others. We start each day with prayer, scripture study and memorization. Sometimes the scripture is a story being told, or a play acted out. Anything that will enhance our childrens learning~to ensure that they will have a Christ centered life when they become adults. We end the day with scripture videos, family prayer, and a hug and a kiss~off to bed... It's important to me as a mother that my children can feel the spirit daily, and that they learn how to serve, love, and give to others. Some ways I do this... is to cut down on TV, computer, and electronics, replace that time with teaching, genealogy, instrumental music, reading good books, and fostering love between each of them. I am not perfect, we have lots of ups and downs in our home. But we try, try try...and hope that someday I will see the benefits of my labor.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

The Church of Jesus Christ is currently and has in the past helping people all over the world. In our community we are involved with Food Banks, Homeless, Families in need of assistance to get back on their feet. Me as an individual, I love to hear about others lives, befriending my neighbors (of whom I love very much) and helping not just Mormons but anyone who I can be of service to. We are all Christ's children, and if we are truly following him, than everyone is very important and we reach out to people all over the world no matter their faith or their paths in their individual lives.
