Hello! My name is Holly Moss. I was born and raised in Arizona-- mostly Mesa, where I now reside! I am a creature of the sun, and no I don't mind the blazing hot 115* summers that much. I grew up as the 4th of 5 kids in a happy and hard-working home. I never remember quarrelling with my brothers and sisters and call them all my best friends today. My dad worked for the airlines growing up so we traveled for free-- A LOT! I've currently been to 34 states and 10 countries and feel so lucky to see and experience the things I did at an early age. The most impressionable trips were those to church history sites and having family testimony meetings along the way!
After graduating high school I attended Ricks College for 1 year, where I met and roomed and served with Natalie Sue---- she's great! The next year Ricks became BYU-Idaho and that's where I graduated with my Associates in Psychology. I transferred to BYU in Provo and after my 3rd week there I met my husband on a blind date! It was love at first sight for him-- it took me a little longer. About 1.5 years later we were married in the Mesa Temple and I graduated from BYU with my Bachelors in Psychology. I then completed a 1 year program in Special Education for my teaching license. I taught Special Ed for 1 year in Spanish Fork, then we moved to Mesa! I taught 1 year Special Ed in Mesa before my life changed forever and I became a mom. "C" was born August of 2006 and is now my big, busy 2.5 year old. "Q" was born June 2008 and is now already 9 months old! Somewhere in those 2 years I also completed my Master's Degree in Adult Education and Training and am looking for an online teaching job. Time flies, but motherhood is certainly the best job I've ever had. My husband is the most sincere, giving, fun-loving, and caring man on the planet. I love him more every day and am so lucky to parent my children with him as my teammate. I always say I can't imagine marriage getting any better, and then it does!

Bednar. ** The Book of Mormon inspires me!
This bucket filler blog is certainly an inspirational idea that will inevitably help me learn and grow. I'm excited to be a part of it, not because I'm an "expert," but because I know I will learn and grow a lot through this process. Thank you all beforehand for your testimonies, examples, thoughts, feelings, and words of wisdom.
