Hi I'm Renee

I grew up in Washington. I am a mom, a wife, and a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 6 children. I spend a lot of my time running the kids around and helping them with their homework. I enjoy cub scouts, music, and being creative. I love to play volleyball and spend time with my husband. I really enjoy serving and helping other people.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church. I went to church each week with my family. As I have grown and now have a family of my own, I have come to know for myself that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I have been blessed by following the teachings of the Savior, and I have felt forgiveness through the atonement and I know that the Savior loves me. I am truly happy to be a member of His church.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the church is a very important part of my life. Each Sunday I attend church. Some of my responsibilities include selecting hymns and finding special musical numbers for the main service (sacrament meeting), and playing the organ. I also work as the cub committee chair person in the cub scouts. This is a fun job for me because I have 3 boys in cub scouts. Recently I have been asked to serve in the women's organization of the church. On a daily basis I pray and read from the scriptures and church magazines, and we read from the scriptures and pray each night as a family. Sometimes we miss a night, and sometimes I don't get my reading in or I don't say my prayers. On those occasions I can really feel a difference in my attitude and in our home.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

Our Heavenly Father wants us all to live with him again. Following the commandments of Jesus Christ makes it possible for us to be worthy to return home to Him and live in his presence. We also make promises and covenants in sacred temples which strengthen our faith, seal families together, and prepare us for eternal life. Show more Show less
