Hi I'm Lois

I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a wife, mother, grandmother, and currently a missionary for our church. My loving husband and I have been married for 36 years. We have 5 children who are all married so we like to think of ourselves as being parents of 10. We have 14 darling grandchildren who have the ability to make us feel young and old at the same time. I haven't figured that one out yet. I love to cook, hike, camp, sing, read, travel, teach, meet new people, and spend time with loved ones.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born to parents who were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They took me to church and taught me in our home how to live by teachings of Jesus Christ. I can't ever remember a time in my life when I did't believe in a Heavenly Father and His Son. The things I was taught about how to follow the example of Jesus always felt right. I am not a blind follower. I have done all I can to find out for myself who God and Jesus Christ are and what they expect of me. I've studied scriptures, prayed, asked questions, and attended church. Through answers to prayers and sweet assurances from the Holy Ghost, I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true and living church and that I am pursuing the course that God has designed.

How I live my faith

 Living my faith has much to do with how I interact with my fellow travelers on this journey of life. Loving and believing in God means I love and believe in my fellowman. Treating others with dignity and respect and giving service in any way, blesses others but also blesses me. I believe that when I am serving others it is as if I'm serving my God. I serve in my neighborhood, community, and church. My husband and I are serving as missionaries in Pennsylvania. Since we have raised our family and are retired from employment we feel that being missionaries is the best way for us, at this time in our lives, to show our faith in God.
