Hi I'm Paula

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and the mother of three children. I have six grand children and three great grand chilren. I enjoy reading, sewing, and scrapbooking. I am currently retired after working 29 years in banking. I enjoy spending my retirement time with my grand children and my hobbies. My biggest hobby has been working with the Girl Scouts. I have worked in Girl Scouts as a volunteer for the past 37 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. Most of my ancestors joined the church in the early days of the church and migrated from England and Scotland to America. However, I have developed my own testimony of Jesus Christ. When we moved to Colorado when I was a young child, my parents did not attend church. I chose to attend church by myself. I would get a ride to church each week so I could attend. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church. I know that we have a prophet at the head of the church today to lead us. I know the prophet receives revelation from our Heavenly Father. I have a testimony of the plan of salvation. I know that if I live to be worthy, I can return to my Heavenly Father someday.

How I live my faith

For the majority of my adult life I have served in the church teaching children ages three to twelve about the Gospel. I have served in various ways teaching the children and organizaing activities for them to participate in. Currently I teach the women in our chapel building once a month about the principles of the Gospel. I know that when I am asked to serve in a position in the church that it is a calling that comes from my Heavenly Father and I am willing to serve in any way that I can. I believe in giving service to others in my church and in the community. I have served my community in various ways. Some of this service has been in the schools. However, most of my service has been in the Girl Scout organization. I have served as a troop leader, day camp leader, day camp director, area manager, and in organizing events and camps. Currently I serve on a committee at the Girl Scout Council as a liaison to girls who are working on their Girl Scout Gold Award. This is the highest award a girl can receive in Girl Scouts.
