Hi I'm Paige

I grew up in Wyoming. I graduated from BYU-Idaho. I am the mother of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a wife and a mom. I've been married for five years and have given birth to three beautiful little girls. My oldest is four and my twins are one. I was able to graduate from college in 2013 with my Bachelor's Degree, and now I stay home to take care of my family. There is no greater calling. Although I love to play the drums and sing, my main hobbies is sewing, cooking, cleaning, and playing with my kids. Yes it is hard, and can be very stressful at times; but all of that struggle makes the fun times even more tender and sweet.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church. I not only believe, but I have faith and trust that the trials I endure are for my good. My life is complete because I know where I came from, I know why I'm here, and I know where I'm going. I know what I have to do and the Lord has given me a road-map showing me how to return to Him. His church is all about family, friendship, service, kindness, humility, sacrifice, endurance, trust, and love. I don't know where, or who, I would be without these qualities to work toward. This church gives me the strength I never knew I had; I'm always motivated to do better, to be better. I know that my family will be together forever, if we live righteous lives here on this earth. I know that I am happier because I take care of my body, physically and spiritually, and I spend each day teaching my children to do the same. I am a Mormon because the Lord's Gospel has shown me what true joy is and how I can obtain it.

How I live my faith

I absolutely love attending church each Sunday. It helps me not only rejuvenate my sense of self, but the teachings remind me how important my family is to the Lord. I'm reminded about how precious this life is and how vital my work is as a mother. I'm also able to prepare lessons because my husband and I are blessed to teach the sixteen and seventeen year old youth in our ward. I have made so many kind and trusting friends.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

I know there are numerous people who claim that Mormons have a boring, strict, and unrealistic lifestyle. Well I testify that this is untrue. I may not drink, smoke, or do drugs, but I am all the happier because of it. I always have a clear and sharp mind. I make choices to the best of my ability and I face the consequences that come with those choices. I center my life around the Lord and my family. My life is all about enduring to the end and following the Lord's commandments because they not only make me immediately happy, but I know they will make me eternally happy. Show more Show less
