Hi I'm Calley

I grew up in California and now live with my family in Idaho. I'm a Labor & Delivery nurse, a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently work as a Labor & Delivery nurse at a large hospital and am currently in school to complete my Bachelor's Degree. I have 3 teenage children, one of which is now serving a church mission in Puerto Rico for 2 years. I have many hobbies such as stamping/scrapbooking & cardmaking, sewing, and you will usually find me doing some kind of "craft". I am hooked on "Pinterest", where I find lots of crafty ideas. I have recently enjoyed refinishing/painting furniture. I have just started to learn to garden and I hope to have a small garden next spring. I also enjoy camping (though I haven't had much time lately and my husband only camps in a "motor home" or "motel"!). My boys like to ride dirtbikes, so I like to go out with them to "camp" for the day.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon, but have come to know for myself how true the gospel of Jesus Christ is. I know my Savior loves me and each of us, and I am grateful for his atoning sacrifice he made for us so that we can return to live with him once again. I have felt the Holy Ghost bear testimony to me that Joseph Smith was a prophet, just as the prophets of old and through him Jesus Christ's church was restored once again on the earth. I am a better person because of my beliefs and knowledge of God the Father and Jesus Christ, and knowing that I can return to live with them and my family for eternity gives me such hope. I have read the Book of Mormon several times, and each time I read it, I gain a stronger testimony of the truthfulness of these precious scriptures. The gospel truly gives me direction and guidance, and I feel hope and peace, especially in a world where there is such turmoil.

How I live my faith

I love working with the children at Church. I am currently the Secretary in the Children's organization called Primary. The children have such sweet spirits and I enjoy when they share their love for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through their singing and testimonies. I love to go to church each week to worship our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and to gain a stronger understanding of the gospel. It helps me to live my life in a more positive way each week and make me a better person.
