Hi I'm Radene

I grew up in the beautiful Northwest. I love to spend time with my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to connect with people. I am currently taking an ASL (American Sign Language) course to remember what I learned in college and expand my knowledge. I have a variety of loves. They include crafts & card-making, camping, walking, ultimate frisbee, strawberries, ice cream...yum!, making others happy through service and going on dates with my husband. I am a wife and mother to three. Being a mother is the hardest but most rewarding job I've ever had.

Why I am a Mormon

Everything good in my life is because of my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And I mean everything. Of course my life has challenges, as does everyone's. But my faith and the friendship of the church members buoy me up when challenges come. I know in whom I have trusted and Christ is my Rock. My adherence to gospel principles, starting in my youth (from the scriptures, and living prophets) have directed my life for good and kept me safe from choices that would bring much sorrow and misery.

How I live my faith

I have the great privilege of teaching music and singing with the young children of our congregation each Sunday. It is my favorite! I feel warm and happy each time we sing together about our Savior and his teachings. I strive to teach my children daily about their Savior and his love for them. "what would Jesus do" can never be over taught.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We do not worship Joseph Smith in any way. We have great respect for him and for the divinely appointed role he played in restoring Jesus Christ's church to the earth. We love him as a prophet and seer. However, the church is named after Jesus Christ, because it is HIS, and as members we are all striving to become true disciples of Jesus Christ and live as he did.

Are Mormons Christians?

YES!!! The center of our faith and first principle of our gospel is "faith in the LORD Jesus Christ". Afterall, the name of our church is "The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints". He is at the head and core of our religious convictions. Everything we strive for centers around becoming more like our Savior. We love him, we worship him, and we desire to be like him. May we all, in word and deed seek to align our thoughts, words, and deeds with him who is our ultimate example. Show more Show less
