Hi I'm Stacy

I'm a full time Mom, a secret handy-woman, horrible vide gamer, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a happy, and sometimes fiery, red head. I have been married for 8 years now and have two children and one on the way. I love playing and being silly with my kids. Before I had my children I graduated from college with a dual teaching certification in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. It is a desire of mine to write a well-liked children's book or two. I love singing, playing the piano and the guitar, reading, and I LOVE to laugh. Whenever I have spare time I like doing crafty projects especially when they involve tools and paint (none of those projects EVER look as good as the pinterest pictures). I have found that I love to can fruit and make jams -- that one was hard to admit.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS home with amazing parents that guided me. I was baptized at 8, went to church, and lived church standards as taught but I didn't realize how much the Church meant in my life until I was in junior high and went through those uncomfortable and confusing stages. I was an awkward teen and my peers were aware of that. I often wondered what my worth was and if I would ever find my place among my peers. During a truly lonely and depressing time I knelt down in prayer defeated and disheartened, not knowing what to say, only filled with overwhelming emotion. My very soul throbbed with the questions: Who am I? Am I loved? Am I worth anything? I became a Mormon that night. The most beautiful, warm, and sacred feeling came upon me. At first it came so subtle but it grew until it overcame my feelings of exhaustion. I realized that my Heavenly Father heard me and wanted me to know that He loves me, He knows who I am, and that my worth was so great that He sacrificed His perfect Son so that I could live with Him again. I believe God knows my pains, sadness, imperfections, intentions, hopes, and desires. He sees my full potential and beauty. I believe that He helps me and gives me experiences that refine and strengthen me and that He may always be with me as long as I let Him. I am a Mormon because living without this Gospel isn't worth it. I am grateful for the blessings of happiness, love, and hope that is promised to me by living God's commandments.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to care for others as if they are my brothers and sisters. I make meals, share clothing, watch other's children, and give others a should to lean on when they are in need. Every Sunday I teach a group of 14 & 15 year olds. I participate in activities that support and strengthen women. I teach my children important morals and standards such as honesty, kindness, love, and tolerance by example and in formal settings.
