Hi I'm April Bodily

I'm a wife, I'm a Mom, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California and moved to Oregon in the 8th grade. It was there that I first learned about the LDS church. I went to a Stake Dance with friends from school and was baptized just before my 16th Birthday. I went to Ricks College and met my husband. We then moved to Provo and attended BYU. After BYU, we went to the University of California at Berkeley in California. It was there we had our first three kids. When our twins were a month old we moved to Idaho, where we had our fourth child. I enjoy running my children around to events and activities, spending time with my family and serving others around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. From the first time I heard the simple truths of this gospel, it just felt right. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. Everything seemed to be as I would have imagined it should be. I also loved all the doctrine about families being together forever. I know I want to be with mu family forever. I have never been happier and I know that comes from following the principles and ordinances I have been taught. I am a Mormon and I love it!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith day to day. That's the amazing thing about this Church...it isn't just something you do on Sundays or Easter and Christmas. It's in everything you do each day. It's in the way you talk, the things you choose to watch on TV and how you treat others. It truly is the gospel of Jesus Christ!
