Hi I'm Barbara S

Member of the Church since 1975. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Divorced twice, widowed once. I am the mother of 5 sons and 2 daughters. In the middle of all this, the missionaries found me and we joined the church. Due to church encouragement I finished college, and then went on to medical school and finished that too. I didn't like to study but I did it anyway. I have been working half my life to become closer to Heavenly Father and it's definitely been worth it. Not all of my children have hung on to the church but they are living less happy lives as a consequence. Even they think so, but improving your life takes a lot of effort.

Why I am a Mormon

A stroke of good luck. The missionaries knocked on my door twice, and the second time I listened.

How I live my faith

I know to attend church every Sunday, it's only too easy to get out of the habbit and hard to get back in the habbit. Early on when I joined the church I worked for two members who had become inactive in the faith and I have learned that anyone is subject to mess up. I have had various jobs in the church over the years, but now that I'm retired I'm really enjoying helping the missionaries.
