Hi I'm Angela

I was born and raised in Utah. I enjoy music, art, cooking, and dancing. I'm married to a kind and talented artist. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am married to the most talented artist I know. He loves to draw, paint, and make video games. My husband also plays several instruments (guitar, accordion, banjo, and bass) and music was something that really drew us together. We are not yet blessed with children but we're excited to start a family in a home that's filled with music and learning. Since I was very little, I couldn't stop drawing, dancing, singing, and I was fascinated with the piano. I have been playing since I was seven years old and have loved it all along. In junior high and high school I was involved in art and went on to be very involved in the band program. I played bassoon for wind and orchestra ensembles, clarinet, saxophone, and percussion for pep bands, and piano for jazz band. Having a very kind and patient mentor, I had many opportunities to learn more about music. I also enjoy writing poetry and have been working on writing songs for voice and piano. As I got older, I began watching a lot of food competition shows and that fired a new spark of artistic interest for cooking. Although I am still a beginner, I LOVE FOOD! Basically, I love anything that I can express myself with and touch others through what I have to share.

Why I am a Mormon

Around the time I was born (being the 7th of 8 children), my father began to get ill. It is all I've ever really known of him. Nothing has completely cured my Daddy physically. This is when my mother had to start working full time and it was a hard trial on our family. All of my family had been baptized and we were raised by faithful parents, despite the obstacles they faced. After a few years, some of my older siblings chose to be involved with drugs and alcohol. Hearts were broken several times. And sometimes, I just wondered why I even tried to be good. I was also afraid of building relationships. When I turned 12, my bishop asked me to read a section of a little book called "The Strength of Youth" every week. I was determined to accept his challenge and test these things in my adolescence. Then I really started saying prayers and even reading scriptures on my own. I felt loved and at peace. I chose to not follow the influence of some of my family. I learned more about my Heavenly and earthly parents' love for me. I learned that I love all of my siblings, no matter what they have done. And most of all, I learned to forgive them. Forgiveness is a miracle. In time with many prayers, all of my siblings have come back to our family are striving to end all addictions in their lives and some are now married and have children. I have seen with my own eyes what change can do. I saw how hurt someone becomes under the bondage of addiction and an unforgiving heart. But, I have seen the freeing power of the atonement of Jesus Christ in all of us. We as a family have never been more joyful. It was hard to learn more on my own about what I believed, without constant supervision, but I truly learned for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. The Book of Mormon is the word of God to ancient prophets and was translated by the power of God. Christ lives, loves, and speaks to us today through His chosen prophets. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

You guessed it. At church, I'm blessed to be called as a pianist. I get to play piano for both the women's organization called Relief Society and also for our church choir. I love that I can develop my music interests and talent through church assignments!
