About Stephanie B.

I'm 29 years old, I am married with 2 kids. My hubby is a contractor in Iraq, He has been there for almost 3 years (he was in the Army for 1/2 of the time). Two and a half years ago I answered a knock at the door and it happened to be two sweet missionaries. I was raised anti, but through our discussions, I (finally) did as the missionaries asked and I paryed to know the truth. I recieved my answer and was then baptized with my husband. Joining the church has been the most amazing thing that has ever happened to us. I love the gospel with all my heart. Right now I am trying to pass the time until my husband returns. A few things I love are: The Gospel, my family, Mormons, Missionaries, Pink, the outdoors, fresh air, the sun, laughing, reading, sleeping, eating and politics (even though I don't understand most of it) A few things I do not like are: mean people, traffic, flying, crowds, and that's it :)

As soon as I heard this, all I could think was, if only they knew, if only they had the comfort of the gospel. I know things are still hard when you do have the gospel, but we have something that so many do not. We have a knowledge of the happiness to come.
