Chat With a Mormon Online
I am married and have three children, all boys. My husband and I live in the small town where he grew up. We love participating in community events. My interests are varied, and I think I have probably been interested in every hobby at one time or another. Throughout my life, I have had an enthusiasm for reading and learning. I taught my older two sons to read when they were three years old, and I plan to teach my youngest to read when he gets old enough. There is a large age gap between my second and third sons, so my older boys were both in school before I had my last son. This gave me the opporunity to volunteer as a music teacher at my son's school one year. I spent about 12 hours a week teaching music, and it was a fun experience that I am so glad I got to have. Another hobby I have always had is participating in sports and exercise. I like to run and walk with my kids. Recently, I have developed an interest in blogging.
I was born into a Latter-day Saint family, but I have also become converted to the gospel through experiences, through prayer, and through the Spirit. Time and time again, I have seen the wisdom and inspiration in the words of the prophets and scriptures. I have discovered for myself that the Gospel is the way to live a life at peace with my actions and my inner sense of what is right and good.
When I read the Book of Mormon, it helps me understand life better. I can see more clearly where my choices lead, and I have the desire to use my choices to bring happiness to my family and friends.
I live my faith by doing my best at all the things I do. I try to implement Christ's teachings and example in my efforts to be a good wife and mother. I have volunteered many hours in school and community organizations to help share my blessings with others. I try to be a positive memory to each person I have contact with, whether it is being a good friend or just taking the time to smile and be friendly and polite to people in stores and business where I go. I also attend my meetings and serve the children of the Church. I am getting to know the children, and we mutually learn from each other in church each Sunday. Daily, I pray and study the scriptures, both by myself and with my family. I am trying to remember and follow Jesus Christ. I am trying to be better, day by day and year by year.
