Hi I'm Traci

I am volunteer with HAZ-MAT Tech and Rescue Squad Diver. I am a school bus driver; a fiber artist; writer. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an avid volunteer for local and regional emergency services. I am a school bus driver. I enjoy fiber arts and photography. I have been married happily for 10 years, but have no children of my own. I am a convert and my husband is Agnostic Pagan.

Why I am a Mormon

There is something so deep, so true, so loving, and personal about being a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints. It isn't just about forgiveness or what God can do for me and I for him. It is about something that started before time did, a plan to make us better because He wanted that for us. It's about successes and little steps toward constant improvement. I can feel my Father's pride in me when I do something I should and feel when He presses me to fix an error. It isn't an idea, its real. Something you can feel and something you want to give to others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the love and support I receive and then passing it on to those around me. No matter if I am simply holding the hand of a man in a car wreck as he is cut out of the car; taking meds to home bound citizens during a snow storm; doing my best to drive my children to and from school safely; or listening to and advising my online community with life's toughest questions. Every moment we are surrounded by those who need the skills God gave us, it is our job to use them to bring people closer to him.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We were born to our Heavenly Parents who want nothing more than to have their family together with them in Heaven; just like we want our earthly family with us. For some that is simple and for others it takes a huge step of faith in God's plan. I know that His plan is perfect and that His love is beyond mine; I know living the way he asks us to aligns us with that will and nothing can divide us from it; I know one day we will look around and marvel at how exact that plan was for our joy to be full. We are God's family and he wants us home; eternally, forever. Show more Show less
