Hi I'm Stephanie

I love art, teaching others, and making people laugh! I'm a Marketing Director for Chick-fil-A. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I was baptized when I was 14 years old. I'm originally from Alabama but lived in Utah for 10 years. I'm a college graduate with a degree in Elementary Education from Weber State University. I taught elementary school for 3 years in Utah before moving back home to Alabama to be with my family. When I returned home, I went back to work for Chick-fil-A. I worked there as a teenager because they have high values and standards and are closed on Sundays. Now, I work as the Marketing Director doing fundraisers, volunteer opportunities, donations, catering and community events! While I'm not teaching right now, I do love my job! It gives me the opportunity to serve others on a daily basis. I plan to return to teaching though because I absolutely love working with children! My other hobbies include painting on canvas, being active, and spending time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a convert at the age of 14. I chose to become a member because of the high values and standards and from the overwhelming sense of truth I felt from being taught the gospel from the missionaries. My sister became a member first and invited me to come to church with her. She was always a great example in my life so I happily tagged along! I'm so grateful for the way The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has shaped my life for the better. I have a great understanding of my Father's love for me, and I'm grateful for the truthfulness of the gospel that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints holds. We have a wonderful prophet, Thomas S. Monson, as well as other apostles and leaders that lead and guide our church so that we can have a close relationship with our Heavenly Father and his desire for us to return to Him one day! I love the unity that comes from this church. We are like a huge family. No matter where you go in the world, you can always find a home in one of our marvelous churches! I invite you to join us, and experience the truth and love for yourself.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has so many giving members. We love to serve others! In my community, I get the chance to give back on almost a daily basis with the position I hold. I'm very blessed to be able to help schools, churches, and nonprofit groups with raising money for their specific causes like materials for teachers, mission trips for youth groups, or helping families fight back with the battle of cancer. I seek to learn about the customers we get in our store, and do little things like paying for their meal if they're having a bad day or going the extra mile in service. There's a quote I love that I try to live by each day. It states, "Service is the rent we owe for occupying space on this earth." Our Savior, Jesus Christ, was the greatest example of service, and if we want to be more like Him then service is a great way start!
