“I plan to continue to help the Habitat organization in the future,” she said. “I am so excited for each of the children to have their own rooms.”

“I love Alton,” Moriah said. “It is a wonderful town. I am a full-time employee of the U.S. Postal Service, based out of St. Louis. I have been working there nine years.”

As a Mom, Moriah believes her key role is instilling her faith and values in her children.

“I love being able to watch them grow and teach them manners,” she said. “I love teaching them right from wrong and keeping God first with everything.”
