Hi I'm Libby

I'm a mother. I struggled through post partum depression. I'm a mormon

About Me

My husband and I were a blind date, that worked out perfectly. We have 3 amazing kids and we love to be together. We rock a good Jenga game, we love to laugh together, and our oldest is always begging for a good old family movie night. Personally, I love to knit in the winter and garden of the summer. I have a passion for the outdoors, for good food, and for being with my beautiful family. I struggled through post partum depression and anxiety after my second child and it has become a defining experience in my life. I was angry, short, and volatile without being able to see how I was affecting my family. It wasn't until my husband pushed for me to get help that I was able to start the healing process. Through therapy, medication, and faith in God, I have been able to heal and become a stronger mother.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a follower of Christ. I believe in mercy, grace and atonement. I believe in second chances, beating the odds, and becoming a new, better person is possible. I want to get as close to him as I can, and utilize his power in my life. I believe that power is given to mankind through the priesthood, a priesthood that is used for baptizing men and blessing babies alike. Through the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have had my questions answered, my faith strengthened and received sublime peace in the middle of chaos and trouble. I am a Mormon because through this church I am able to get the best access to all the blessings Christ has to offer.

How I live my faith

I feel like living by faith isn't some huge trial of fire. It is a thousand little decisions you make, daily, and sometimes hourly to choose good without an immediate outcome. Like choosing to take my children to church on Sunday when it surely would be easier to stay in our jammies. Choosing to be honest in my relationships, knowing that trust is built over time. Choosing to be patient for long awaited blessings, that may never come in this life.
