Hi I'm Angy Macfarlane

I'm a scrapbooker, missionary blogger, mother of 4 boys, a Bishop's wife and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to take pictures and then to scrapbook what I have taken! I'm a stay at home mom and I love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I always said I would NEVER be a Mormon! :) Well, I'm a Mormon and that was the best decision I have ever made! I was 19 years old when I got baptized. Ok, I dated a Mormon boy in high school and we fell in love and wanted to be married. All of his family thought he would go on a mission, but he married me instead. I have always felt guilty about that. I know how important missionary work is and how important it is for people to do this in their life. BUT I don't feel guilty anymore (ok maybe a little guilty still). Let me tell you why. We got married in his parent's backyard. It was beautiful. When we moved to South Dakota where my husband was attending college we started going to his church (he was Mormon). The missionaries started teaching me and I just wasn't into it. I kept telling them they could keep teaching me. Maybe I was feeling like it would be mean to say no I'm done. They kept coming and teaching. I remember them telling me that they were putting March 18th down on their planner for my baptism. At that point, I thought they were crazy, because I had no desire to get baptized. They still wrote it down. So, around the three visit/lessons the missionaries asked me to say one of the prayers. That's when my heart started to soften and I really started listening to the lessons. I prayed a lot to know what to do. I was scared to join. I don't know why. It was different from what I was taught all of my life. I continued to pray though. I finally KNEW it was the right decision for me and my little family (it was just my husband and I at the time). I felt good about the decision when I finally made it and told the missionaries. I have never looked back! I have 4 boys now and my oldest is on a mission in Australia right now. I love the gospel and this church. I couldn't imagine my life without it. I love my Heavenly Father and my savior Jesus Christ. I am blessed to be apart of this wonderful church.

How I live my faith

I am serving in the Young women's program right now. I work with the teenagers at church. It's a lot of work sometimes, but it's worth it. Our teenagers are strong, smart and very faithful. I am a volunteer at my kids schools and I really enjoy that. I have helped with the elementary yearbook for the past several years. I like going into the classrooms to help out whether it's taking pictures for the yearbook or helping the teacher with various tasks.
