What advice would you give your younger self?
To not put so much time and effort into unimportant things. Focus more on what I can keep and take with me to the next life.
Do you feel like you’ve found your “purpose” in life? If so, what is it?
At a very important time in my life Heavenly Father told me I could choose to do whatever I want in life and be successful. Then He said that the choice that would help me learn the things I need to return to His presence are to be a wife and mother. It isn’t easy, but this has and continues to be where I’ve learned so many important lessons.
How would you like people to remember you?
I hope people will feel love and acceptance from me—Heavenly Father’s love.
