Hi I'm Donna

I grew up in Georgia, USA. I am a hot chocolate business owner. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have an online hot chocolate business out of my home. I am a Mom of three and my son is serving in the US Army. I like to swim and walk my dog, an Alaskan Malamute. I like photographing people and flowers and playing in the rain. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, but I don't like grits, sorry. I was a lifeguard and a swimming teacher as a teenager. I graduated from college in Health Promotion. I was a missionary in Germany for a year and a half. I love my husband and we love to travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I found out for myself that God loves me. I also was given a witness from the Spirit that Joseph Smith really saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and was called as a prophet of God. God really does care about what happens to us and wants to be a part of our life. He has given us a plan to help us to be happy in this life and in the next. I am so thankful for the teachings of Jesus Christ that have helped me avoid so many problems in my life. I am also grateful for the hope that I can change my life through the forgiveness of Jesus Christ. I don't have to be who I was yesterday. I love that hope for a better tomorrow. It helps me to keep trying when I mess up. I love that God wants us to love each other and help each other.

How I live my faith

I look for ways I can help others at church and in my neighborhood. Sometimes a hug, a smile or a friend can make a big difference to someone. I work with the youth at church, helping them become leaders and encouraging them to draw closer to God. They inspire me to be more Christlike. I also visit four ladies from my congregation every month. I make sure they know they have a friend and they can call me if they need anything. We talk about the scriptures and strengthen each other.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

I think the Church is growing so rapidly because people are seeking goodness in the world. There are so many wonderful Christlike people that are members. Good people attract other good people. God is gathering His people to His Church. The Spirit of God guides honest seekers of truth to the true church. Show more Show less

Who are the Mormons?

Mormons are people from all over the world who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are called "Mormons" because we believe in the Book of Mormon. Mormon was a prophet historian who compiled and abridged the religious record of his people. Every prophet in the Book of Mormon testified of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
