Hi I'm Della

I am a homebody. I love my family and I want to make a difference. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 50 year old wife and mother of a 20 year old autistic son. I live with him and my husband (his stepdad) and 3 cats. I love the outdoors, flower gardening, reading, and watching uplifting movies. I love music of many kinds. I have 3 brothers and one sister and most of us live in the same town where we all grew up. I believe that how we live our lives, how we treat one another and how we inspire others does make a difference. I was a restaurant owner for several years and feel that what I learned and how I developed and endured difficult times was far more important than the amount of income earned. Peace can be found in the simplest of lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon at the age of 48 when my husband told me about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When he read to me from The Book of Mormon for the first time I heard in my thoughts, "It will be OK". I felt, as different as the words were from what I had always heard, that they made perfect sense. As i investigated the Church the things I had always wondered about finally fit. I am a Mormon because I now know this is the Lord's plan for me and where the peace I have always searched for can be found. I want to make a difference and I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am thankful to have the opportunity to teach in the Church's Women's organization and to have a Church family that I can count on in addition to my family. I try every day to be mindful of how my life serves as an example to those around me. I pray that what I say and do can be uplifting and inspiring to others and that I will have the opportunity each day to be of service to someone. I try to be aware of the chances we have each day to enrich the lives of others and to hear what the Spirit whispers. My hope is to always be available when given the opportuinity by the Lord to serve.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

My testimony is my personal knowledge of the truthfulness of the things I have learned of the Mormon Church before and after becoming a member. It has grown from the feeling, at my first introduction to the Church, that this is the change I had been searching for to a gradual realization of the many things in my life that I once took for coincidences that I now know are not coincidences at all. My Heavenly Father knows me. He knows my name. He knows my needs and he has (and always had) a plan for me. Show more Show less
