Hi I'm Maureen Stuckey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for fifty years, am the mother to four fine sons, grandmother to eleven grandchildren. I trained to be a pediatric nurse and worked at that profession once my children had left for college. I am now retired. I recently served a 30 month Family History Mission. I plan on serving in 2013. I was taught to knit by a sweet older lady when a small girl. She taught all the little girls in my neighborhood, while sitting on her front step. Have been knitting ever since. I love to cook for my family and friends. I did not know my grandparents so it has been exciting for me to do my Family History. I have gone back on one line to the 1500's.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I joined the Mormon Church just after we were married. We were impressed by the fact that no matter where you go in the world the services and the curriculum are conducted in the same way. The leaders and teacher of the church are all volunteers Plus as a small child I wondered about the prophets in the Bible and could not understand why there were no prophets any more. I was excited to learn that indeed there was a prophet on the earth today, modern revelation was being given to the world. As I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it being true, the spirit whispered to me "indeed the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and we do have a Prophet in our midst today" I am so grateful the missionaries were led to our door.

How I live my faith

I am the Ward Employment Specialist also Teacher Development Instructor. I am also a visiting teacher, my partner and I have six sisters from our ward that we visit each month. We take them a gospel message. Other times we help them if they need child care, or a home cooked meal if they are sick and unable to care for their families. Of course if there is a crisis in their homes we help out with whatever needs doing. Sometimes I am asked to teach an adult Sunday school class or an adult woman’s class. I love to teach Family History to the other members of my congregation. I have found great satisfaction doing my own Family History work. My husband and I are retired now. We raised four sons and now we are the proud grandparents of 11 grand children. I love the gospel, I love my Father in Heaven and would be delighted to share my testimony with anyone who would be interested in listening.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?
