About Me

I am currently a stay at home mom to my beautiful, fun 1 year old! I love to be active outside in the sunshine with my Chocolate Lab Lilly. Before I stayed at home i was a Dental Assistant. I love teeth! i love watching movies, reading books, and doing puzzles! I am trying to teach myself piano. It is a working in progress but I love music. I like to sing but i do not have a pretty voice, so needless to say i like to sing in private! I Love being a wife and mother! It is hard work but I know it is what Heavenly Father gave me time for!

Why I am a Mormon

When i was growing up my home life was very unsteady and unhappy. There was a lot of abuse and no love. My parents had divorced when i was a baby. When i was about 11 years old the Sister Missionaries knocked on my door. They taught me about Jesus Christ and about Heavenly Father. When they talked to me i felt in my heart that what they were saying was true. They told me that God our Heavenly Father loved me, that he had a plan for me, and through His Son Jesus Christ I could have a better life. I knew from that moment on that Jesus Christ was special and i wanted to learn and know more about him. I did. I read the Book or Mormon which is another Testimony of Him. I knew that i should be baptized just like Jesus was. Life was still hard being in the environment my parents gave me. I felt unloved by them and really struggled with my life. I always knew that if I trusted in God that every thing would be alright. Though my childhood was difficult, through my Faith in Jesus Christ and the Love of my Father in Heaven, i was able to have a better life, and understanding about life. I learned to marry in God's Holy Temple, where families can be together forever! I am the happiest i have ever been, all because of God's wonderful Plan of Happiness, which blesses me with true joy. Which joy is knowing my Savior Jesus Christ and following him and his principles which gives me the greatest blessing in this life, a second chance for a family!

How I live my faith

Currently I am the Ward Music Chairman and the Young Women's Secretary! I pick the hymns that we sing in Sacrament meeting, I lead the congregation in the songs, I ask people in the congregation to perform special musical numbers and I am in charge of teaching others how to lead the music. With my Young Women's calling I help the girls in Personal Progress, which is a program designed to bring them closer to God by doing activities that will strengthen their relationship with Him. I am an additional leader to the girls along with a President, First counselor and a Second counselor. These are my "jobs" at Church but i enjoy them so much! I Know that the Lord wants me to help run his church. I play a small part in the Church to help it run smoothly.
