Hi I'm Valerie

Mother of 3 children and a recent graduate in biotechnology.

About Me

I moved many times growing up and lived in different cities in California, Ohio, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Now I live in Utah and love the mountains here, hiking in them and photographing them.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both baptized into the church before I was born and I was raised attending the church and being taught the precepts. Most of my friends growing up were not members of the church and are wonderful people. But for me, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints teaches me what I need to do to become my best self. I feel real happiness when I follow my Savior's example and follow the teachings of the living prophet.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon for me is not just a religion. It is who I am at my core. All my decisions are based on what I believe my Heavenly Father wants from me. I have a profound gratitude for my Savior's sacrifice and grace.
