Hi I'm Stacee

I grew up in a small town and now I work for a corporate bank. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town where I spent a lot of time outdoors and playing sports. My most favorite things to do while growing up were playing soccer, snowboarding, and riding the four-wheelers when my family would go camping in the mountains. While I still love these things I don't get to do them nearly as often as I would like. While I was working towards a college degree in Finance I had the opportunity to complete a semester abroad in Australia. I loved this experience so much as I was able to see a little bit of the amazing things Australia has to offer while also experiencing a lot of different cultures in my International Student Housing. After graduating from college I was able to marry one of my good friends from high school and we have been having fun ever since. I now work at a bank in the corporate trust industry while my husband is attending medical school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because through the teachings of this church I have learned that we have loving Heavenly Father who knows and cares for us intimately. God is not just a passive force but a loving father that sent us to Earth to learn, grow, and progress so that we could one day become like him. He has not left us here on the Earth to "figure" it out alone but has given us tools like a living prophet, scriptures, and personal revelation through prayer to help us on our way as we work to get back to his presence. His expectation is not for us to be perfect but for us to do all that we can and then be willing to accept his love, comfort, and guidance.

How I live my faith

Currently I participate in church by teaching and planning activities for the young women in our area that are between the ages of 12 and 18. We have a class each Sunday to discuss topics found in the scriptures as well as counsel from our church leaders. Outside of our normal Sunday church lessons our group gets together once a week for some type of activity. These activities can range anywhere from a lesson in first aid, having a movie night, or doing a service project. The main point of these activities are to help the girls learn more of God's love for them and others, improve themselves and set goals, and of course have fun.
