Hi I'm Betty

I live in Georgia moved several times. Worked at Church Headquarters, have several grandchildren and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Eleven grandchildren, and now 2 great-granddaughters are the joy of being a senior citizen! My sweet husband and myself have retired to the Southeast and while I love the warm climate and closeness to the ocean my husband loves the Rocky Mountains. Golf, gardening, service, reading, our Tibetan Terrier, and keeping up with our grandchildren keep me busy!

Why I am a Mormon

In 1976 I discovered that "families can be together forever".....the missionaries told of the Book of Mormon and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints was the original church of Jesus Christ when he walked this earth. I had many questions that my previous religion would or could not answer. I have had my questions answered since I became a member in 1976. I know without a doubt in my heart that the Church is true, that the Lord chose Joseph Smith, Jr. as the only human being righteous enough to participate in the restoration of the gospel by transcribing the Book of Mormon as directed by the Lord. It fills my heart with joy and peace to know that my family is sealed together thus extending our living throuout all eternity.

How I live my faith

Since baptism in 1976 I have so enjoyed teaching primary, youth and adults on Sundays. We visit assigned sisters each month, take them a short spiritual lesson and help them wherever needed in their homes. It is wonderful to see our ward members join in community projects, help non-members fix their homes, tend to the sick and teach emergency preparedness to members and non-members alike. I look forward to Sundays and being with our ward members, it is like going home and being with family. We love and care for each other and seeing all the "little ones", watching them grow up expands our "ward grandchildren". Our children are well-behaved and polite, their faces shine as they learn and grow in the gospel. To pick a favorite "calling" or job in the Church is difficult because while you are nervous when beginning a new job it turns out that it is your favorite!
