Hi I'm Geri

I was born in Illinois but grew up in Utah. love being a Mormon because it has brought the joy and fulfillment we all seek.

About Me

I'm a wife, a mother of six and a grandmother of 25. I'm a college graduate, an author of a parenting book, and a would be author of children's books if I could find a publisher for my stories. I love to swim, hike, bike, read, and consider myself a creative cook, but my passion is researching family history---mine or anybody else's.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it brings me joy, purpose, and peace of mind---and because it's true. My grandparents were Lutherans in Sweden but when they heard the message of The Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints they knew they had to become members. I owe everything to them for their faith and courage for if they had not joined the church I might have grown up never knowing about it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others wherever and whenever I can and sharing my testimony with any who will listen. One of my greatest joys is seeing a friend or a family discover the truths of this gospel and be baptised into the Lord's church, then seeing the Lord's light shine in their faces and changes it makes in their lives.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the power of God bestowed upon worthy male members of the church. It is a great blessing to have that power available to me and my children. Show more Show less
