Why I am a Mormon
I grow up in the church, my mom was a member and my father wasn't. I didn't have a strong testimony in my youth. When I left home to go to college I made some wrong chioces and became inactive. When I got married my husband wasn't a member either. When I had my first child I became active again. My husband joined the church and we were sealed in the temple. Things happen in our marriage that ended it. My children and I moved away and it was easy to be inactive again. But with wonderful members fellowshipping my family grew strong in the gospel. That isn't to say there wasn't trails in my life because there was but with a stronger testimony of Christ in my life, together with Him I am who I am today.
Why do Mormons do family history or genealogy work?
I don't think it is just Mormons who do genealogy...I think it is how you feel about yourself and how the past has made you who you are today. That past make you want to know more about those who came before you. I am a searcher. I want more than just a name and a date. I want history, stories, pictures and memories. I want to know who my family truly is because of the past.
How I live my faith
I volunteer in my community as a fire fighter and EMS. I teach prepareness classes to all churches. I help member and non member of my church get started doing family history. I teach in my church. I try and live my life the way the Lord would want me to. Being honest, caring and loving to other.
