About Me

I am a blind woman who likes knitting, writing short poems, math, nature, and service.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon. I remained one because I have felt the Holy Ghost strong as I read the scriptures, prayed, and watched conferences. I also remain because I have been richly blessed by the gospel and the priesthood. I know this church to be true. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have physical bodies and we were created in their images. I know that the gospel is true. I know that all the scriptures and church pamphlets are true doctrines of Christ and teach us how to return home. I know that President Monson is a prophet today along with the twelve apostles. I am grateful for him and all of the church leaders throughout the ages. I am grateful for the temple. I know that families can live together forever, that we will live again in the presence of God in an Immortal body, and have a chance to be like him. I am grateful for all my lessons and blessings, which I have received throughout my life. I am grateful for my family, faith, patience, and the help I have received to reach out to others. I am grateful for my many talents and learning how to use them to help my fellow beings. I am grateful for the assistance of others when I need it and for the answers to my prayers, though it may not be automatic. I know if we do what the Lord commands us we are blessed physically and spiritually. This and more I am thankful for and say in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith since I was a child. I increase this faith by reading my scriptures, praying, and putting my trust in Heavenly Father God as I try the things which I believe he wants me to do. This has also been true as a teacher for children and women. I would pray and then prepare the lessons putting my trust in God and hoping I was gathering the necessary material for those I taught. When I wrote letters for sisters in the church I also prayed and then read the lesson then listened for inspiration to know what was God's will for me to write in the letters that would reach their hearts and teach them.
