Hi I'm Heather

I am a wife, a future Marriage and Family Therapist, a dog lover, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and enjoy all things involving the family. I'm a dog person and love spending time with my two doggies. I also enjoy blogging, playing computer and video games, and learning new things. Online shopping one of my favorite pastimes, as is spending time with my husband any chance I can get!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me a true sense of purpose and identity. Without my faith I would be lost and unsure of what the meaning of this life is. My faith gives me guidance and comfort in times of need and brings me joy and gratitude in times of prosperity. I love my Savior and am so grateful for His sacrifice because it allows me to try and try again whenever I fall short and make mistakes. I am who I am today because I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Families and relationships have been a huge theme throughout my life. I have been married for three years and am currently studying to become a Marriage and Family Therapist. I believe that my calling in life is to help strengthen families in any way that I can, starting with my own and eventually counseling those who may be struggling with their relationships. I also love working with the little children at my church! Children are so sweet and everyone can learn something important from them.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Heather
What are Mormon women like? We're just like any other women you know! We feel the same feelings that you feel and have share many of the same interests with you. Mormon children are taught at a very young age that both men and women are essential to Heavenly Father's plan, and that both are equal and important in His sight. Though equal, both play different roles in a Mormon family; Mothers are more nurturing than fathers according to Heavenly Father's design, so women generally spend their time in the home raising their children. Mormon fathers usually provide protection and means for the family's livelihood while the mother is in the home. Fathers also preside over the family by teaching and providing guidance, but this responsibility is shared with mothers. Show more Show less
