Hi I'm Andie

I grew up in Colorado I am a full-time wife and mother of four children. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I went to school for Interior Design. I love it! But what keeps me busy during the day is my four little children whom I love very much. I love teaching and playing with them. My husband is a surgical resident who works insane hours but we all seem to stay in harmony with each other as we work hard as a team. I love shopping (even on a residents salary just keeps me be more creative), designing, crafting, dressing my girls, working out, Family Friday Night Pizza Parties, playing board games, doing hair, Valentines Day, Sunday walks, teaching, cooking and above all the rest I love kissing and hugging my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up I always seemed to be an obedient child. I never got in much trouble. I lived off my parents and my brother and sisters testimonies. It wasn't until I was 18 years old my mother passed away and that my borrowed testimony became MY TESTIMONY. By exercising faith in Jesus Christ and through the Holy Ghost I could feel both my Heavenly Father and Saviors love for me. I knew I would see my mother again. From many sweet sincere whisperings I knew everything was going to be okay. The story goes that my mother was diagnosed with brain cancer 3 days after Christmas during my Senior year. She had no signs or symptoms leading up to this event. The doctors gave her 6 months but she only lived till Valentines Day. The first day she was diagnosed I prayed to my Heavenly Father that He would not take my mother till I was ready. Every day I prayed expressing my unreadiness. He patiently waited. The night before my mother passing during my prayer I had this strong feeling that everything would be okay and I calmly expressed my readiness with faith. Valentines Day is a Happy day for me. It reminds me of the love my mother has for me. It also reminds me how much my Savior loves me that he would die for me so that I may return back to my mother and Father in Heaven once again. I am eternally indebted to my Savior. I love him. This experience has taught me to "trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to thy own understanding."

How I live my faith

I live my faith my attending regular Sunday church meetings. I also attend any activities during the week that go on. I love participating in our church's choir. I currently teach Sunday School for the adults at my church. I also help out on service projects in our community by making quilts for children with HIV and weeding and gardening for a local reserve.
