About Me

I'm a divorced single mother of three who loves life and has all the hope in the world. I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Because with the gospel in my heart I feel home where ever I am. I feel peace with all the changes that have, and will continue to happen, in my life. Because I know my Father loves me and has a plan of happiness just for me. I know he watches over my sweet children as they trudge through the challenges in their lives that are making them stronger. Just like you, I have challenges in my life that I have to face all alone. And as a member of the church of Jesus Christ I know He will stand beside me through them all.

How I live my faith

My faith is my life. So I try to live it every day - teaching and nurturing my children. But I also have a couple special assignments from my church leaders to serve other people. One of my responsibilities is to serve the single adults in my stake in the 31 - 45 age range. This has been an interesting transition for me. I think Father was very mindful of my resistance to socializing and dating and is facilitating my moving forward through this job. Also, I've learned that being unmarried in this wonderful family-centered church at this age can leave people feeling excluded sometimes. It has been a privilege to me meet people in my similar circumstance and look beyond our dating status, and see that we each need to be included in this gospel. We each need to come unto Christ. I've learned my calling as the co-chair of the "mid-singles" group in my area has so much more to do with fellowshipping than anything else. Perhaps my most favorite way I live my faith is as a visiting teacher. Another woman and I are assigned to watch over three other sisters in our ward. We teacher them each simple principals of the gospel during monthly visits, but we also become dear friends and participate in each others lives. We seek opportunities to serve these sisters. It is a joy!
