Hi I'm Mary

I'm a wife and a mother and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Wyoming with lots of wide open spaces. Now I live in the city but am still a country girl at heart. My life is my family. I have a wonderful supportive husband who works hard so I can stay home and take care of our four children. I love being home with them to experience firsthand all the crossroads in their lives. Even though my children are now older, I still get to be at home with them helping with homework, cooking them dinner and loving this precious time with each of them.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I love being a member of His restored Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love to read His word in the Bible and also in the Book of Mormon. I feel closer to Him when I study His word. I love having a living prophet who guides our church. My religion helps to bring me peace and provides a foundation for me to teach my children. No matter where I live I have the blessing of a church congregation who will welcome me and my family and be there for us. I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ taught that who "will lose his life for my sake shall find it." I know this is true because I find true joy and happiness as I serve and reach out to others. Being a mother requires a lot of sacrifice but the rewards always outweigh the costs. I feel my Savior helping me each day as I try to be the best mother I can be. I also love to help in my children's schools. It is so rewarding to spend time with great teachers and see the impact they have on my children and all those in their classes. I also get to teach the children in my church congregation each Sunday. I learn so much from them.
