Hi I'm Dawn

I'm the mother of six young adults and teenagers. I love watching and helping them grow up. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother. I have been married almost 25 years and have six children. I'm not employed but spend a lot of my time keeping my household running. Some of my kids are in college, others in high school. Quite a few of my kids have Attention Deficit Disorder. It makes for a busy household trying to keep everyone organized and successful in their school work and jobs. Rarely is there a quiet moment at our house but at least the noisy moments are usually happy ones.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the Mormon church when I was young. So I guess you could say I grew up Mormon. As an older teenager I really read the Book of Mormon for myself and found it to be true. I can still remember that warm feeling over 20 years later. I really try to trust in my Heavenly Father and find that when I do and when I keep His commandments I am happier. I know that life brings us trials and we grow from those trials but, I don't need to bring trials on myself by disobeying God. I love that Heavenly Father loves us enough to show us the pathway back to Him. We can take a detour if we want but that makes the journey back to Him harder. Being a Mormon helps me avoid the detours and I've learned to repent if I have taken a detour.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. There are several ladies I visit or stay in contact with each month to be a support to them and just love them and share their lives with them. I also help the children's organization leaders know how to teach the children that come to church each Sunday and how to have meaningful activities with the 8-11 year old girls and boys at a midweek activity. I love helping them to know what resources are available to them so they can teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the children.
