Hi I'm Yvette

I love learning and teaching. I'm a HUGE San Francisco Giants fan. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved going to school and learning, especially math. I admit it I am somewhat of a nerd. I taught math to middle school students for 20 years and can never pass up a good book. I also enjoy watching and playing sports. Football in the fall, basketball in the winter, baseball in the spring and summer are the mainstays. I enjoy playing basketball and ultimate frisbee. I recently moved back west to be closer to family; I miss my friends out east but feel like I've come home being west again.

Why I am a Mormon

I can't imagine my life not knowing or understanding God's plan for us. Everyone has different trials in life and through my own trials and experiences it is the knowledge that I am a child of God and that I can live with Him again someday that have provided the strength I have needed to persevere when things were tough.

How I live my faith

One of the things I enjoy about going to church is the opportunities to serve. Until recently, each week at church I had the opportunity to work with the children. Together we would increase our knowledge of God's plan for us as we studied the scriptures and learned songs that taught different principles of the Mormon faith. Now that I no longer have that responsibility, I have the opportunity to develop my piano skills as I now serve as one of the choir accompanists. Music is one of my favorite ways to express my gratitude to God.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is our Heavenly Father - the father of our spirits. We are created in His image, just as our physical bodies are created in the image of our biological parents. He has a body of flesh and bones just as we do, but it is a perfect being. As our father, God wants us to be like him and return to live with Him someday. He knows each of us intimately and is concerned with each individual; he wants us to be happy, but will not compel us to do so. However, he has given us guidelines, called commandments, to help us make decisions that will lead us to happiness. Show more Show less
