Hi I'm Tricia

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in south west Michigan. I work for the Department of Veteran's Affairs.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man. We were unable to have children of our own, but we love our to spoil our 16 nieces and nephews. I love my 3 totally cool dogs. I quilt, scrapbook, knit, sew and read many many books. I enjoy spending time with family, friends and I love just hanging out with my dogs.

Why I am a Mormon

I had attended many different religious churches but none of these felt "right" for me. Then a friend left me with a Book of Mormon before they returned home from their visit. I read the first section that night. I had such strong feeling that I knew I needed to know more. I went to Church the next available Sunday. I just walked in. Everyone welcomed me and made me feel like I belonged. I took the missionary discussions, made friends and then prayed hard to make my decision. Unlike others I did not really need to overcome anything that I shouldn't be doing as I was never interested in those things. I did need to feel a commitment to do any calling that the Lord may make of me. I made the decision and have been happy ever since. I met the love of my life at Church and the day we wed was the best day of my life. Without the Church I am not sure I would be as happy as I am. The spirit I feel from my Heavenly Father lets me know that the choices I make will help me on my path back to him. I have served in many callings and I know that the Lord really knows us as I have learned from all of the callings I have had.

How I live my faith

I work with the children ages 18 months to 12 years old. I teach them on Sundays, I organize the teachers for each age group and help with cub scouts and activities for the 8-12 year old girls. I try to live my life outside of the my teachings from church as an example of Christ life. I try to be kind to others, be fair in my opinions of others and Lead as I would want to be lead.
