Hi I'm Ruby

I just turned 50, a widow, with 4 children, 26,25,22,17, & 1 Granddaughter. I am an LPN, I am a Mormon and Love it and life!!!!

About Me

I have been a widow since March 18, 2010, my Dear Gregory and I had a total of 4 Children between us, I now have my first grandchild and she means the world to me. I love my family, friends, and church family. I love to fish, swim, crocheting and scrap-booking too. I also love the computer and play games . I am a LPN currently not working, I am the Secretary of the Young women in my Ward. I attend all my meetings when my health permits it, I love to go to Temple and I also love doing Genealogy for my family, I hope to one day spend eternity with them all. I believe that we should live life to its fullest that Heavenly Father would want us to do. I believe in living my life through the gospel. I love the Church and all it stands for and believe it is the true Gospel and that we have a living prophet walking the earth today, That is President S. Monson. I also have testimonies of the healing powers of Priesthood blessings.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in April of 1993, I had felt that the Heavenly Father wanted me to do this. I realized that the Prophet Joseph Smith was a true prophet of Heavenly Father and that this was the true Church and that the Book of Mormon is another true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I fell away from the Church for many years, I married a man who was raised anti-Mormon. Then in 2009, my Nephew was baptized in the Shenandoah Ward and Me, My husband and 2 youngest daughters still at home went to the baptism. I all of a sudden became a peace and felt like I was home again. Then next thing I knew my husband and 2 youngest daughters were getting baptized on Dec.19, 2009 and Confirmed on the 20th. I became stronger in the Church and so did my family. Then March 18, 2010, my husband Greg was killed in an automobile accident when he suffered a massive heart attack. It was my faith that carried me through it all and on March 18, 2011, I went to the Winter Quarters Temple and there is where Greg and I were sealed together for all eternity as husband and wife and our 2 daughters whom were baptized with Gregory, were sealed to us to, I hope one day our other 2 children will be sealed to us. I also know that President Monson is a prophet of Heavenly Father and that he leads and guides us here on earth, so that one day we will return to our Heavenly Father. I know this because, I prayed about it and studied the scriptures. I will continue to learn and grow in the Church.

How I live my faith

I have a calling as the Secretary of the Young Women, I am thourghly enjoying this calling as a have a daughter who is in young women. I previously was the Primary Secretary and a Primary worker. I have given talks in our sacrament meetings on 3 occasions since 2009. I love to give my Testimony, and always hope it helps someone that may need encouragement in their lives. I feel that with each and every calling that I have held it just strengthens my faith even more. I love Heavenly Father and doing his work while I am here on earth.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes, we definately believe in that the Bible is Holy Scipture and the word of God. It is full of History and Heavenly Father instructs us with the stories and testimonies in it. With it he shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that He is our Father in Heaven and that Jesus is his son and the trials and tribulations that Christ went through for us and that there is the gift of the Holy Ghost. We also have more Holy Scriptures, that include The Book of Mormon, which support and goes along with the Bible. It is another testimony of Jesus Christ. I can inform you for a fact that The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints use and promotes the use of The Bible and The book of Mormon as Holy Scriptures and the word of Heavenly Father.
