Hi I'm Valerie

I grew up in Utah. I teach Kindergarten. I love being an aunt. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest in a family of five kids. I have nine nieces and nephews. I love to travel with friends and family. I love to read and watch great movies. I love to sew and quilt. I teach Kindergarten at a local public school. I love listening to classical music.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been taught the gospel of Jesus Christ all of my life. My parents have always been good examples to me of people who are trying each day to obey God's commandments and love their family. I have always felt a strong desire to be obedient to the commandments and what I believe to be the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I gained a personal witness from the Holy Ghost as a teenager that my Heavenly Father loves me and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I believe with all my heart that God has prophets on the earth at this time who receive revelation to guide His Church.

How I live my faith

Every day I pray to my Heavenly Father thanking Him for all His many blessings and then try each day to follow His commandments. I try to treat everyone I meet with kindness and respect. I look for ways to help and serve others. I study His word in the scriptures each day, which help me have a proper perspective on my daily challenges. I have taught the youth and adults at church. I have helped organize service projects for local agencies with needs.
