Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a wife, a mother of three girls and three boys, a PTSA co-president, a singer, and a runner. I love to work in my children's schools and be active in my community. I have sung with several wonderful choirs and my kids would say that I am always singing around the house! I have run three marathons including the Boston Marathon and hope to run another after my injury is healed. I gain great satisfaction from setting goals for myself and accomplishing them. Most everything I do is centered around my six children and I couldn't be happier with my role as homemaker.
I was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and experienced what great joy it could bring a family. I have remained active in this faith and now enjoy great happiness in my own family because of it. Everything I do is shaped by my membership in this church. I know that this is Jesus Christ's true church restored on the earth today. I am a member of this faith because I know that we are led by a living prophet who receives direct revelation from God. I have studied the scriptures my whole life and have had revelation after revelation from the spirt that they are true. I believe in modern-day revelation and one of the blessings of having the gospel is the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. The Comforter brings me great peace, joy, and understanding. I am a Mormon because of the standards it sets for young and old alike. My family and I are greatly blessed because we can enjoy freedom through living the commandments. I know that because of the gospel and God's power given to man on earth, my family can be together forever. This brings me joy beyond measure!
I live my faith through spending my time in the community and in the church. I have worked with the neighborhood association board, have served in many capacities with the PTA, have been a room mom in the schools, have worked with the cross-country team, and many other things. I also plan and prepare the music for our Sunday worship services. I delight in putting together a program that will inspire and uplift the congregation. Twice a month I direct an activity for the 8-11 year old girls in our congregation. It is such fun to play with these girls and teach them gospel principles through various activities. Another way I live my faith is through visiting and serving three women in our congregation. I visit them each month and bring them a message, fold their laundry, take them to the car repair shop, or whatever help they need. I like to think that I am first on their speed dial when they need help.
