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.
Why I am a Mormon
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.
How I live my faith
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.
