Hi I'm Ruth

I 'm a traveler. I'm a truffle maker. I'm a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been teaching elementary school since the 1900's and every chance I get I am off exploring the world. From the crowded streets of South Korea to the slums of Kenya, I find joy in learning from everyone I meet. We can accomplish so much more when we work together. When I am not teaching or traveling you might find me in the pool, making truffles, reading a book, watching reality T.V., or, my favorite, spending time with my family. I believe that life is a journey and my responsibility to find the joy in all that I do.

Why I am a Mormon

Some might say it is a family tradition, but I know it is a personal decision. I was born to a family with parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents who were all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I was surrounded by examples of living a Christ like life. As I grew I had to find out for myself what I believed. I spent time studying the scriptures, praying, and asking questions. I also watched people around me and found the truth for myself. I know the truth and that is something that will never change. For me, it is just who I am and how I choose to live.

How I live my faith

Living my faith means that I do all I can each day to use my time and make the choices that will help me return to live with God again. I do my best to help others and to be a positive influence. I spend a good portion of my week working with the teenagers at church which brings joy and challenges. I support them as they try to find the truth for themselves and have fun at the same time. Whenever possible, I spend time with my family which is the most important part of my life and my faith now and in the future.
