Former Director of Music, Inspiration, and Laughter
A little bit about me…I have been involved with music for most of my life, specifically singing in choirs while growing up, playing piano and all things artistic or spiritual that bring cheer to my heart. Although I earned a vocal scholarship to attend college, I eventually changed degrees and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Family Life Science from Utah State University. This education has helped me in countless ways as a mother, specifically as I combine that knowledge with seeking daily inspiration from God, to raise our four sons to be the warriors of God they are intended to be.
My husband and boys are my greatest source of fulfillment and are my favorite people to spend time with. That being said, becoming a mother has also been my greatest challenge. Among many personal difficulties and obstacles, I’ve been able to overcome severe postpartum depression and a near death experience with the birth of our last son, which has enabled me to have great compassion and a true desire to extend empathy and support for any and all mothers/people who experience challenges of their own.
When I’m not in the middle of housework, cooking, cleaning, or calming the crazy antics of kiddos, I play piano, guitar and sing. My craft table is also a favorite place for other hobbies where I sew, paint, draw and create. Curling up with a cozy blanket to read a good book is a luxury I indulge in whenever possible. I also enjoy connecting with loved ones, trying foods from around the world, traveling, sunshine and exercise. Pink and purple are my favorite colors, and anything floral sparks my interest.
I look forward to becoming friends with you through Momivate!
