More About Me

Tagged: tr. v. 1. To label, identify, recognize with. 2. To touch in the game of tag.

My children are playing ball outside my window with the neighbors, and I’m being “tagged” on my computer by Julie at I’m not sure if this “meme” fits with definition one or two or both, but apparently, it is a fun way to learn more about other bloggers. So, for a little lighter Everyday Biography, I will tell more about me:

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. A PR writer for a university performing arts office
  2. A scooper at Baskin Robbins
  3. An office assistant for a cosmetic company
  4. A full-time mother (still working on this one)


Four things that give my life purpose:

  1. Being a wife and mother
  2. Taking every responsibility seriously
  3. Avoiding time-wasting activities
  4. Living according to the gospel of Jesus Christ


Four things I do to take really good care of myself:

  1. Exercise
  2. Early to bed, early to rise
  3. Worship and rest on the Sabbath
  4. Read


The four events that have most formed how I live my life today:

  1. Coming to know and feel confident in my own religious beliefs
  2. Growing up with parents who taught me to choose my commitments wisely and then to honor those commitments fully
  3. Getting married and learning to be an adult with my husband by my side
  4. Choosing to have children and be a full-time, stay-at-home mom


Four things I do to keep motivated every day:

  1. Personal and family prayers every morning and night (and often in between)
  2. Read/ponder/study/discuss the scriptures for at least 10 minutes per day
  3. Smile (When I remember to do it, smiling motivates me toward positive pursuits.)
  4. Serve someone else


Four people who have been the most influential in motivating me:

  1. My husband is my best listener and lets me talk it out so I can move forward.
  2. My children motivate me to learn and grow and work on my weaknesses.
  3. Good teachers and a mentor who helped me develop the confidence to be myself
  4. Friends who share their hearts and allow me to share mine


Four ways that blogging helps me attain or maintain my goals:

  1. I trust that I will be inspired every day to see something with meaning and write about it.
  2. I am learning to live in the moment rather than looking toward my upcoming plans.
  3. By asking myself this daily question and then sharing an answer once a week on my website, I have more gratitude for the blessings God gives to me and my family.
  4. Interviewing creative and inspiring individuals for Everyday Biography prompts me to keep writing and developing my own creativity.

    Thanks for that. I feel like I know you pretty well but it always interesting to hear someone describe themselves.

    I really enjoyed that! You touched on some very important things that are crucial to being happy and maintaining balance in life. And I love that you try to serve someone else and that it motivates you. That is something I am really working on right now. Thanks for responding to the game of tag. 🙂
