Hi I'm Ann Marie Blodgett
If someone were to ask me what I do, the first thing that would come to my mind is that I care for my children. Having four special needs children from the age of ten up to seventeen keeps me very busy. In addition my husband and I own a technology company, and I do social media services. I also like to network with other like-minded individuals.
Why I am a Mormon
Because I searched out so many other faiths, and none of them ever felt even close to as right as the way I felt when I started learning about The Church.
What are you doing to help strengthen your family and make it successful?
Spending time together, reading the scriptures together, praying together, going places, and talking to one another.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer is a major part of my life. I pray all day long. It helps jump start me in the morning, and helps me fall asleep at night. I also do many personal prayers while sitting inside the celestial room in the temple. These particular prayers are extended in nature in that I'm asking for guidance at the highest levels, I'm showing my gratitude to a loving Heavenly Father in the most reverent way.
What has helped develop greater harmony in your home?
The number one thing that has developed greater harmony in our love is that we show our love for one another more. We try not to yell at one another. We have family prayer at least once per day. We spend time together. We share experiences with one another, and we incorporate scripture study into our daily lives.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
I share the Gospel with my friends on Facebook every day. I'm constantly sharing different church videos, talks, and quotes. I also give my friends numbers to the sister missionaries on Temple Square. I also have decided to launch a new church promoting website in which I can get the church's keywords high in the rankings with church friendly content because there are so many out there that are trying to hurt The Church, so I want whatever is found there to be Church Sustaining, and not the other way.
How I live my faith
I am the most active in the church right now than I've ever been. I love sacrament meeting and the talks given there, I also enjoy Gospel Doctrine, and I especially love the sisters in Relief Society. The lessons I learn there come deep from within the heart of those sisters that teach each lesson. I always feel like I come away from those lessons with a Christlike desire to be a better person. I am so blessed to have been introduced to this Church by my husband eighteen years ago, and to have been taught by two of the sweetest missionaries on this earth. I make sure to read my scriptures daily and pray multiple times a day. Another way I live my faith is by learning as much as I can about it by reading books that I buy from the DI and Deseret and Seagull Books. There is always something new to learn.
