Hi I'm Alberta
I homeschool my 3 children. I love visiting the Shore. I love gardening, cooking, sewing, organizing, and living frugally. I have a degree in Music Education.
I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but when I was a teenager I had a crisis of faith. Did Jesus Christ really exist? Was He really the Son of God? Was this church really His church? And I didn't see how I could find out. I couldn't talk with Christ face to face, which, to my teenage mind, was the only sure way to know. I struggled for weeks until one day I decided that even if I didn't know for sure, I would keep following the teachings of Christ and the church because they made me happy. As I continued to read and study the scriptures and live the commandments, I gradually grew to realise that I could know the answers to my questions for myself through the Holy Spirit even if I couldn't see them with my eyes. I now know Jesus Christ lives, He is the Son of God, and this is His church restored for our day.
Right now, I teach music to the children at church. I love it! I know from personal experience children remember the gospel principles they learn through music longer than any other lesson they hear. So I try do my very best every week. I believe there is no greater calling than teaching children.
