Hi I'm Diane

I'm married with 2 grown sons & 2 grandkids. I'm a convert to the Mormon Church. I love to read, walk & quilt.

About Me

I was born & raised in Portland, Oregon USA. I have worked in the dental field for a number of years & enjoy being around people. I love kids & and have found great personal satisfaction teaching them & working with them in our Church as well as within our family & in the community.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband was raised in the Church. When we got married and had our first son there were many serious complications. The first thing my husband did was call a couple of Brethren from the Church who hold the Priesthood. After blessing our new born son he began to breath on his own & the Dr. was able to control the seizures he was having. This spoke much of the Church to me & it wasn't long before I called the missionaries and started learning more about the Church. That was in 1978 & I have never regretted my decision. Because of the Church I have grown & learned so many new things that have helped me tremendously in every facet of my life. 

How I live my faith

I attend Church weekly. Pray daily and read the scriptures both the Bible and The Book of Mormon. I have been given a calling or job in the Church where I work with little girls ages 8-9 yrs. old. We do many fun activities together twice a month. I also enjoy visiting 3 other ladies in our area which we call visiting teaching. We share a monthly message from our Church leaders & talk about our families and lives. 

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

 Obviously, no matter how hard we try, we make mistakes. We're not perfect...Without the Savior and His Atonement we would not have the opportunity to repent and forsake those mistakes. Without our Savior, there would be no hope, no mercy and forgiveness. Because of Him and His sacrifice, we, too, have the chance to live once again with Our Father in Heaven. I love my Savior and thank Him every day for His goodness and grace. Show more Show less
