Hi I'm Andrea

I'm a stay-at-home mother of three children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for 7 years now and have three beautiful children. My life right now is pretty much taking care of my family and home, but I have many other interests besides homemaking. I have a bachelors degree in recreation management with an emphasis in recreation therapy, so I love the outdoors and I love helping people. I really like to sew and quilt and do other crafts, especially when I can help others in the process. I also really love to travel and learn about different cultures. I have been to at least 10 countries and even lived in Saudi Arabia for two years with my family when I was young. Another thing I am very passionate about is music. I love to play the piano and sing, especially when I can do them with family. Music is powerful in so many ways. I also love animals and have a dog, a cat, 7 chickens, 2 cows, and a duck. I love my life and thank God every day for the blessings He has given me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but that doesn't mean I had to be one. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have prayed to Heavenly Father and asked him if this church is true. I have felt in my heart so strongly that this church has all the truth and will help me have the greatest happiness. I have been able to observe the lives of many people, Mormons and members of other religions alike, and I can testify that Mormons are the happiest people I have ever met. Members of this church understand their purpose on this earth and it gives us peace and hope. I have received a personal witness from God that His son, Jesus Christ, is my Savior and Redeemer. I know he lives. He lived on this earth a perfect man, suffered for my sins, was crucified, and rose again. He has truly suffered all things and conquered all things and he can help you and I do the same.

How I live my faith

I teach Sunday school to 16-18 year old youth at Church and help them learn more about God and His gospel and how they apply it to their lives. Sometimes I play the piano for the church choir. Music is a wonderful way to feel God's love and His Spirit. I love being able to uplift and help others through music. I also visit a couple of women every month in their homes and share gospel messages with them as well as provide help to them as it is needed. I try to study the scriptures every day so I can learn more about Jesus Christ and become closer to him and teach my family about him. I know that every person on this earth is one of God's children. I try to follow the example of Jesus and treat all people how I would like to be treated.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

We believe that there is life after this earth life and that we can be with our families for eternity if we keep all of God's commandments. The family is an organization set up by God to help us gain the experiences we need on earth and to prepare us for the life after this one. We need to show God that we can live righteously with our families on earth so we can live with them after this life. What person that loves their family would not want to be with them forever?
