Hi I'm Stacie

I'm a mother. I'm a mathematician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 5 children: 3 older sisters and an older brother. As I grew up I realized I loved math and how numbers relate. I went to college to become a math teacher and earned my Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics/Statistics Education. Teaching brought so much excitement and fulfillment. During my time at school I met the man I knew I wanted to be with forever. We fell in love and soon wanted to start a family. When I had my first son, I was fortunate enough be able to stay at home and be a full-time homemaker. That is currently my job and my passion. We now have 3 sons and they bring me more fulfillment and joy than I ever thought possible. I am their teacher and they are mine.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I have felt his personal love for me. I know that He lives and loves each one of us individually. There is great peace that comes into my life when I strive to study the scriptures daily. I cannot deny that peace. The spirit has testified to me of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. The spirit has testified to me that Joseph Smith was a true and inspired prophet of God. Moroni promises us in the 10th Chapter of Moroni (verse 5) that "by the power of the Holy Ghost we may know the truth of all things". I have had that personal witness.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday my husband wakes up early and goes to meetings for our church. I wake up with my 3 sons (5 years old, 3 years old, and 1 year old) and get them dressed in their best clothes (slacks, white dress shirts, and ties). We attend 3 hours of church every Sunday. After those 3 hours I hold choir practice for our ward choir. We have practice songs that will bring joy and peace to our hearts and to the hearts of those listening. Twice a month I hold activities for the 10 and 11 year old girls in our neighborhood. Through these activities, the girls learn how to become strong and active young women in their church an community. They are encouraged to set goals and work to accomplish those goals. I also have 3 women in my neighborhood whom I have been asked to look after and check in with. This program is called Visiting Teaching. I talk to these women often and we are good friends. I also sit down with them once a month and share a message with them that is close to my heart. The subject of these monthly messages are published in the LDS church magazine, The Ensign or The Liahona.
