Hi I'm Claire

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man and we have 7 children, all married with families of their own. Being a wife, mother and grandmother is a great joy. I always wanted to have a large family. Family is a wonderful place to learn and grow. I love music which is a big part of my life. I love to read and sew and I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior, Jesus Christ and all the children of God who I believe are my brothers and sisters. Just before I turned 16 years old my mother passed away! She had cancer and struggled for eight years with her health. It is hard to lose your mother at any age, but my faith in Jesus Christ and His plan of Happiness help and guide me and I know I will see my mother again. I have since lost my father, two sisters and a granddaughter. Because I will see them again I can enjoy the family I have here and look forward with courage. I was born into a family that belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I was baptized at 8 years of age. I have always loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and believed this was His church. There comes a time in everyones life when you must decide what you believe and why! A friend of mine challenged my belief by sharing his belief of how things really are. All I believe is so beautiful and His lacking. I asked my Father in Heaven most sincerely to let me know for sure! I got my answer. After praying, pondering his word and trying to be like our Savior, I was sure that what I had lived and learned was the truth. I know this is the work of our loving Father in Heaven and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. I love His gospel which is truely the Plan of Happiness!

How I live my faith

I work with the very young children in my church. I also visit members of our congregation in the capacity of serving and helping. I love good music of all kinds. I pray that I can be like my Savior by loving and serving others.
