Hi I'm Colleen

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Montana. I am a foster parent and have adopted 4 children and have 3 biological children.

About Me

I am a mother of 7 children. 4 of my children were adopted and 3 are biological they range from ages 25-18months. I live in a tiny town of about 400 people. I work at the school as a Title1 Aide. I am 36years old.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of everything that our church teaches us and the blessings it brings to my family. I have lots of experiences of how the church has blessed my family but i will only share a few. When my oldest biological daughter was born she was 2 months early she had to be in the ICU. They told us that she would be there at least a month if not two. One night my father came and gave her a blessing the next day my husband and I showed up and the hospital staff asked us if we brought the car seat (we had not) they then told us we could take her home.She was only there for 2 WEEKS. The church has blessed our lives richly and teaches my children to me christlike in there actions and law abiding citizens.

How I live my faith

I am the Nursery Leader in our Ward. We travel 40 miles to and from church. We are the only members of the church that go to our school. My children therefore are the only Mormons in our school. We have BPA leaders calling my kids to help serve dinners, people calling and asking if our kids can serve food at funerals, they ask our children to take care of pets when there on vacation BECAUSE they know that they are reliable. Kids at school know that we are Mormon and respect that they choose not to drink, cheat, do drugs. They know that we have family home evening on Monday nights and want to come over and join us.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

We believe that Jesus Christ came to earth and was crusified for our sins. We believe that because he died for us and was resurrected that we are able to ask for forgivness. We believe that Jesus Christ IS the Son of God!! He sent his only begotten son to set the perfect example in how we should live our lives and he then died on the cross so that we may have the opportunity to live with him once more.
