Hi I'm Deborah Diane
I am proud to be a Mormon. I live in beautiful Oregon.
I am a stay at home mome who seems to always be in the car. I have eight wonderful, active, and very challenging children. In my spare time (or the time I steal for myself) I love to crochet and contact others on the computer. My hubby and I have been married for 20 years now and I can't believe how quickly the time goes by.
I was born a Mormon but that is not why I am a Mormon now. I am a Mormon now because I endeavored to, and succeeded in gaining my own personal witness that the Book of Mormon and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true.
We always, always, pay our tithing. We know that we have been so blessed by this principle. In the twenty years of marriage, my husband has been out of steady work for 5. Yet we have always had a roof over our heads, cars that run, and plenty to eat and wear. We KNOW this is a blessing from our Heavenly Father because we live the law of the tithe. We always go to church. Even when it is a huge struggle we take our kids to church. We only make exceptions for illness. Sometimes it is hard but that is all the more reason we don't dare stop...and we are glad that we go. I love the renewal of spirit I feel when I attend church. We try to have family scripture study every night and family prayer. We try to live the gospel in our dress, media, and in the way we treat each other (really working on that one!!). We try to remember the Savior Jesus Christ is the center of our faith, the WHY in what we do.
