Chat With a Mormon Online
I have 5 girls. Yes, five. I thought each one of them was going to be a boy. Boy was I wrong. Don't feel sorry for my husband because they adore him, and of course the adoration is mutual. I care for them at home and love it. I love to be the maker of my home, where it can be a refuge from what the world is offering. I love to sew, creating something with dimension out of a flat, fluid medium. It feeds my soul to create.
We recently went to NYC for a week to celebrate our anniversary. We saw broadways, ate the most delectable food, and spent money on "things". New York is one of the fastest paced cities in the world. As we were walking down Madison, my thoughts drifted to my kids at home with a babysitter and I smiled. I smiled because I know that that is where true happiness resides--in a family. I am a Mormon because I believe in being together as a family for the eternities, obtaining that immortal life through my Savior who atoned for all my mistakes and sins. I believe that peace and joy can only come through that knowledge.
I'm the Young Women's president (ages 12-18) and adore the girls I teach. It helps me to better understand this age group and prepare for when my own girls are teenagers.
