Hi I'm Vanessa

I live in the desert. I love to travel. I am a single mom to probably the coolest boy ever and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the church. I grew up in the midwest. I consider Arizona my home. I went to Ricks College right out of high school. That was the first time I remember being surrounded by so many members, and it was a strange feeling that everyone there knew what a "Mormon" was. I love to travel! Its a great feeling to be in another country and see a chapel or temple and know the exact feeling you will feel when you are near it. I am a single mom of the coolest kid ever. I love my family and have the very best friends! My life has not turned out the way I expected, but I am so excited for our future!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because over the years, the experiences I have had have shown me that that was the building blocks to my own testimony. Receiving a blessing, or seeing specific prayers answered. The happiness I have felt from trying to always choose the right. Although it isn't always easy, I know where I want to go and I have a roadmap of how to get there.

How I live my faith

The biggest motivator I have to live my faith is my son! He is always watching me, doing what I do! When I can ask him what happened in a scripture story and he can tell me, I can pat myself on the back. :) I teach the sunbeams (3 year olds.) and I am also a visiting teacher.
