Hi I'm Rhonda Moses

I am a wife, mother of 3 teens, massage therapist, reading tutor, soon to be full time student, and a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for almost 20 years. My husband and I have three beautiful teenagers. Our life is super crazy busy. All three of our kids are in high school and involved with a local youth theater arts program. Because of their involvement I am parent supervisor one night a week and teach a core voice class another night a week. During the day I work two different part time jobs. On Mondays and Fridays I work as a massage therapist out of my home and Tuesday through Thursday I work as a reading tutor for our local community college. Having some down quiet time is a true blessing in our home.

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is the most important aspect of my life. I had to opportunity of growing up in the church and when I was 21 I served a mission in Texas for 18 months teaching others of my faith. Just a year after my mission I was married in the Portland Oregon Temple. This was a beautiful day and one I will always cherish. My husband and I, like many marriages, have been through some difficult trials. One of the most difficult for me was when he chose to leave the Mormon church. My heart was broken. I was not sure if we would survive as so many of our ideas and believes were no longer the same. I found myself doubting and questioning all that I had learned and taught in the church. It was through the tender mercies of a loving Heavenly Father that my testimony grew stronger and stronger as I turned to Him time and time again in prayer and scripture study. I grew to know that He really does live. And He loves us. No matter where we are at on the path in this life He loves us and is aware of us. My testimony of the Book of Mormon grew stronger as I read and continue to read from its pages. My husband and I, I am happy to say, are still married. He does not go to church with the kids and I but he supports us and for that I am thankful. We are all here to learn, to grow, and to make choices. I am so thankful for my membership in the LDS church. I am so thankful to know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and that His beloved son Jesus Christ came to earth to show us the way how we can return to live with Him someday. It is through my faith that I gain my greatest hope and joy. I am very thankful!

How I live my faith

Each morning my kids and I get up very early as they go to the church for seminar. Seminary is a scripture study class that they attend at 6 in the morning every school day. While they are there I take some time to read and ponder the scriptures this helps me to prepare for the busy day. It is pretty great that all of us are starting our day learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ. This helps me as I go about my day to remember to show a little extra kindness to all those that I come in contact with. I also have the opportunity to work as a ward missionary in our church. This means I get to help plan activities that others from another faith might be interested in attending, teach a Sunday School lesson once a month, and try to do my best to share my faith with others.
