Hi I'm Bettie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a woman over seventy years old. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints more than half of my life. I do a Lot of Family History and Church Indexing. I enjoy and find much fulfillment in doing both. The most important People in my life are my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, my Husband, Children and Grandchildren. I was born in the same area where I still live and so I have several lifetime friends who live near-by.

Why I am a Mormon

I attended many churches before I became a Member of the LDS church. I researched each one well, and this church rang bells in my head that helped me know it was right for me. I tend to be very questioning and those concerned were very forthright and patient in answering all of them for me. When my intellect and my spirit were in sinc, I knew it was the right church for me and I was baptized. I love the Church and it is the center of my life and my family's. I love the kindness of the members of our church to me and their acceptance and love they also show to others not of our Faith. We are a helpful people and I like that. There are so many ways we can grow and learn in the church and that fits my personality and my spiritual needs.

How I live my faith

I have worked in many capacities in my church. I have been a teacher to children's classes and it was so rewarding to me and hopefully helpful to them. Years later there is still a bond between us that was formed by caring about them and praying for them, as well as teaching them. I have also worked in the women's organization in different capacities. Teaching, providing services to those who need them and visiting with them in their homes. Working in the welfare services has been a learning and valuable asset to my life. It feels good to help those in need. I feel we learn to really care for others when they help us or we help them.
