Hi I'm Joanne Irwin

I have lived in Missouri my entire life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, index, spend time with my husband and other family. I love going to the temple and finding peace on a busy day.

Why I am a Mormon

For 34 years I had been looking for something that made sense to me. The more I visited with the Elders the more I felt that what they were saying was familiar to me. I had the feeling that this was where I was meant to be. I had never found a church that I believed in all that was said until then. I finally felt that belonging that I had been seeking. I've never felt such love, compassion, and honesty until this point in my life. I had people in my life that I loved and that loved me but I was missing something. If it hadn't been for an amazing person in my life I don't know when I would have found the church. Thank you Stacy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being honest and compassionate with others. I work with Primary and each day that goes by I love it more and more. I have the honor of being a part of these kids lives and love it.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Joanne Irwin
I truly believe that we have a modern day prophet. Before knowing anything about Mormons I had always wondered why there wouldn't be prophets now. They were here before and during the time when Jesus Christ was here why wouldn't they be here now? Show more Show less
