About me

Occupation Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend
Location Arizona
Introduction I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I grew up in Utah, attended BYU-Provo and BYU-Hawaii. I served a mission to Ecuador Quito and then married my mission president's son. We are the parents of five biological children, three in-laws who we count as our own, and the grandparents to 10 amazing little people. Together my husband and I served a three year mission to Mexico and currently live in Arizona, where none of our children currently reside so we are very fond of traveling!
Interests My family, traveling, reading, politics, historical novels, photography (although not really good at it) writing, teaching seminary. And some day I hope to write exercising, but I haven't really developed a great interest in that yet.
Favorite Movies Romantic Comedies are my favorite like Ever After, Heaven Can Wait, old ones like Pillow Talk etc., followed by period movies like Pride and Prejudice --especially the five hour version, Sense and Sensibility, Middlemarch, Albert and Victoria, Amazing Grace.
Favorite Music Pretty much anything with a good beat from any era.
Favorite Books Mrs. Mike, Irving Stone novels, David Copperfield, the Kingdom and the Crown Series, The Last Lecture, Undaunted, The Boys in the Boat, and any other biography of inspiring people.
