Hi I'm Barbara
I'm a Mormon. Or as my husband likes to say, I am a saint in the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I have raised my children and now enjoy my grandchildren. I became an empty-nester at a young age. A family never ends and I am so thankful that they can be eternal. I enjoy continuing to learn and experience new things everyday. I love people! I love when I am serving others.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up in a non-LDS family. I searched throughout my life for a Church that I felt was teaching me what God wanted me to know. I found pieces in various churches, but when I found the LDS church I found what God wanted me to know. I was raised in a very splintered family. Sometimes I was with siblings and sometimes I was not. My family members smoked, drank, enjoyed drugs, and other non-healthy lifestyle choices. I knew I wanted to make different choices - some were very obvious and some more subtle. I have never regretted my decision to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the best decision I have made in my life.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by following the teachings of Jesus. I teach 5 & 6 year olds at church. I volunteer at a local hospital where I get to cuddle babies in the NICU. I listen to the promptings of my Heavenly Father and serve him by serving those he directs me to.
