Hey! My name is Heidi Anne Baker. I am 19 almost 20 and a student at BYU-Idaho. I love it here soooo much. This is a wonderful time to be alive!!!! Life is so great and how blessed am I to have such an amazing family involved in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have amazing parents...Mike and Dawneen. My dad is a Physical Therapist and the most spiritual person I know. I have learned so much from him and I marvel at what an example he is to me. I am a definite daddy's girl. I think of him and start to cry I just love him so much. It was quite pathetic how much I cried when I said good bye to my dad when I left for college. I hyperventilated and shook violently....my dad handled it well. Then theres my beautiful mother. She is a substitute and my best friend in the whole world. I tell EVERYTHING and we have so much fun together. I heard someone say once that there was a possibility we chose our families in the pre-existence and I wouldn't doubt me and my mom were dear friends and wanted to be together. Then there are my siblings. Ryan is almost 16 and a total stud. I love him so much fun and he is such a good boy. I love talking to him and he loves me :) I was so happy when he became taller than me cause now we can dance in the kitchen and he can catch me and stuff.
Adam is the biggest 14 year old goofball I have ever met. We tell eachother everything and hang out all the time. His freinds love me. Im the coolest big sister ever haha He is the biggest punk and is never serious and can get away with everything and anything. It drives me bonkers. He is a kick butt soccer player and knows it too haha. Joseph is a very very caring boy. He loves dinosaurs and drawing. He is crazy good at it too! He likes to do outdoorsy things and be active. Joseph is definately my snuggle buddy :) I love him so much. Hana is the youngest and the cutest girl I know. She is a natural flirt and loves anything and everything that has to do with pink, makeup and boys. She calls me all the time and I love her phone calls because it will get to the point where I can put her on mute and she will talk for about 5 minutes and then ill say something like "Whoa thats cool" and then she'll talk for 5 more minutes. I have to laugh sometimes because my parents get to raise her hahahaha she will be a super fun teenager.
We have moved all around the country about 9 or 10 times. I love moving and getting to know more and more people. Yet, what I love most is that my family has learned to rely on eachother. We have done lots of things with eachother and understand the importance of spending time with eachother.
I am an elementary education major with a chinese minor. I am really excited to become a teacher. I love little kids and they can teach us the most amazing things :) I have decided for now to be a 1st grade teacher and I am so excited. In the fall of 2010 my best friend Lindsey and I are going to China to teach english to small children in boarding schools. I am scared out of my mind but I know I am excited.
As I am starting my journey of life on my own I am learning lesson after lesson. I love the gospel. I know the my redeemer lives and that he loves me. I am not alone. What a wonderful time to be alive.
