Hi I'm Donna

I grew up in Tampa, FL. I am a mother of six children. I love it when everyone feels included. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outside, I love nature. My favorite thing to do is play outside with my husband and children, especially volleyball and soccer. I am so grateful for endless creations to discover and a body healthy enough to play around. I obviously love children. It is an amazing privledge to mold the heart and minds of a little one. Ever since I was eight years old all I ever wanted to be a was a "cool" mom. Five out six children surveyed in my home think I am "cool" --so I am living my dream! I really believe our life here on earth is meant to bring us joy. I trust our Father in Heaven's love for us and know that following the commandments He has revealed in the Bible and Book of Mormon will lead us to peace during the trials of this life and joy in the world to come.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love the truth! I was born into a Latter Day Saint family and was happily baptized at age eight but it wasn't until I was a teenager that I felt tested on whether or not I would follow the Savior's example like I promised to do at my baptism. I decided to exercise faith, keep the commandments, and set a good example. Living the gospel has brought me peace, friends, and lots of opportunities to reach my full potential. I continue to follow the restored gospel of Jesus Christ because my heart burns with joy when I hear the prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and the twelve apostles speak to us. I know what they are saying is true. I feel especially happy when they testify that the Savior is coming again.

How I live my faith

"The Kingdom of God or Bust!" This quote by President John Taylor describes exactly how I feel about living the gospel. I strive to give the Lord a 100% effort. I participate at church by helping myself and others come unto Christ by listening to and sharing testimony. I try to help find people for the missionaries to teach. I also have an assignment to care for a few specific women at church. I try to visit with them often bringing words of spiritual encouragement. I try to make a difference in their lives. This assignment brings me joy.
