- About Me:
I am the oldest of 6 children, and the mother of 5 amazing sons. Except for my youngest, who lives with me, my older boys have all grown up and moved away either for school, career, or marriage. I am a Latin teacher (and former English teacher), who loves to learn, teach, and have deep discussions. I'm also working on a doctoral degree in educational leadership, specializing in curriculum and literacy. I'm very passionate about helping children overcome struggles in literacy, and finding creative solutions to empower teachers and struggling readers. I enjoy playing board games and card games, and I also love to do puzzles. I especially love the outdoors and enjoy hiking. I love the ocean, and find time to walk on the walking trails and boardwalks near my home. I enjoy singing and tinkering on the piano. Some fun facts about me are that I lived in Australia when I was little, I love everything pink, and I've taken two groups of students to Italy, where by chance, I happened to see the Rome temple under construction! The most important thing you could know about me, though, is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is EVERYTHING to me!
- LDS singles I'd Like to Meet:
The things I admire most in someone are that they make themselves available to the Lord, have absolute integrity, are humble, patient, and kind. I also admire those who love to learn and have made education an important part of their life. I'm looking for someone who loves the temple and goes often.
- Church of Jesus Christ:
I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is my whole world. I love to read my scriptures and study them in depth to gain better understandings. I have a firm testimony that my Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, are real, and are intimately aware of me. I know that they are involved in the details of my life. My parents joined the Church when I was 6. My testimony has become a deep fire within me through righteous living and special spiritual experiences. It began when I learned from the missionaries and my good parents, and asked lots of questions. I am very inquisitive, but I trust the Lord, His timing, and His will. My goal is always make myself available to the Lord and to align my will with His every time, even when I don't understand. I want to be a positive example to others, including my children, of the joy of the Gospel. I love the peace, power, and love I feel from my Heavenly Father, and I want to share that with others. Someday, I want to serve a mission and help bring others to Christ.
