Hi I'm Deena

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother and stepmother to our 6 children. I currently work full-time in the healthcare field. When I get a chance, my hobbies are drawing, reading, gardening and decorating. I like to spend time with my kids and most of the time we are running at the speed of light, trying to juggle our childrens' schedules between households.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager I struggled with who I was and my purpose in life. When I became a mother, I knew I wanted to teach my children morals and direction in their lives that they wouldn't get from the influences of the world. After an invite from a neighbor in a new place we had moved, I started going back to church. My testimony began, I knew my Heavenly Father loved me, and that I was in the right place for myself and my children.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a teacher in our womens' organization one Sunday each month. I also serve as a visiting teacher, visiting with certain women each month in their homes, helping to teach and uplift them and serve them when their need arises.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

I know that there is no happiness which does not come from our families. There is no other lasting, fulfilling happiness except that which we find in our family. Our world today promotes the self-serving gain which does not give us lasting happiness. When we choose to put our family first, we will find a happiness over time that will not fade, wear out, break, or need to be 'upgraded.' Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

I am so thankful for the Savior, Jesus Christ, who overcame death that we can also gain eternal life. I know that death does not end our existence, and that our spirits are eternal beings. I know that we will again meet our loved ones beyond this mortal existence here on earth. I know that those who lived here on earth, however brief or long their lives, will greet us on the other side of the veil. Show more Show less
