Hi I'm Audrey

I'm a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I'm a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a neighbor, and so much more! I have a Bachelor's of Science in Sociology, and work in the Health industry. A few years ago, I took a cake decorating class at the local hobby store. Since then, I have grown my baking skills and have a home-based bakery of sorts; providing baked goods for family and friends on a fairly regular basis. I also enjoy traveling; which allows me to try my hand at photography. My husband and I are "foodies" and we enjoy finding new places to enjoy locally.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Germany, raised an Air Force brat and moved between Germany and California a few times as I was growing up. We finally settled in Northern California where I finished High School and grew roots. We were raised non-denominational, however we were always taught to do good and to put family first. When I was 20, I became a Catholic as I was in search of a spiritual home. I was extremely active for a couple of years, but soon the newness wore off and I started to see some other members and leaders in a different light and was uncomfortable with what I saw. In 2005, I moved to Utah for work. Soon after arriving, the missionaries came to the door. I had already been introduced to the church by co-workers so I was prepared when they arrived. A short 6 weeks later, I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Being Mormon has been nothing but positive for me. Since my conversion, I have seen that the way I was raised was in harmony with the teachings of the church even though we didn't realize it at the time. I've been blessed to meet and marry the most amazing man, and to know that we will be together for eternity brings me comfort and joy. Having the restored priesthood in our home makes it a refuge for us. Knowing that families will be together forever and that I will see my loved ones again has gotten me through rough times. I know that I am a daughter of our Father in Heaven. I know that He loves me and that He knows the things I stand in need of at any point in time. I know that Jesus is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that we have true prophets here on Earth today, and that they communicate with our Father in Heaven. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that through him, we have received the Book of Mormon, another testimony of Christ and that the Priesthood was restored here on Earth. Knowing these things brings me inner peace and joy in my life even when I am dealing with strife or turmoil.

How I live my faith

I have been fortunate to teach the youth in our primary organization, and taught 7 and 8 year olds. And I have been truly blessed to be involved with teaching young women. Being able to help these young women learn and know that they are daughters of a kind and loving God has been remarkable. Helping them to learn that they have value and worth, and encouraging them to gain testimonies of the church on their own helps me to maintain my testimony. I love these young women and having seen many of them go on to serve missions for the church and to marry and become strong wives of valiant priesthood holders has brought me so much joy!
