Hi I'm Darla
I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a Mormon!
I am the mother of nine children - 7 boys and 2 girls. I married my best friend 18 years ago. I am a stay-at-home mom. I enjoy quilting, reading, writing, learning new things and spending time with my family! I come from ancestry that has provided depth and meaning to my life. My mother is Samoan and my father is an American-born German. Their examples of hard work and Christ-like service has directed my life's path for good.
The summer I was 14 my father challenged me to read the Book of Mormon. Being a very goal-driven individual, I was determined to read it and complete it before school began in the fall. What occurred was more than just a completion of a goal. From that moment forward I have been able to say that I am LDS not only because of what my parents taught me, but because of what the Holy Ghost has witnessed to my heart.
One of my favorite things to do is to visit some of the women in our congregration in their homes. I am assigned to visit four women monthly and share a spiritual message. I love as we share together our joys and sorrows, our hopes and dreams, our experiences with our families and our deep feelings about God.
