Hi I'm Marilyn

I'm retired from USU Dept of Music . I helped the faculty & advised students preparing to graduate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the country life in Idaho. We have about 2 acres. We raise chickens, geese, and ducks for meat and eggs. We grow a large garden and store the food for winter use. We also have a lot of fruit trees and shrubs. I have always loved to hike, camp, fish, and hunt. I am happiest when I am up in the mountains. Due to the economic problems that hit our nation in 2009, it was necessary for me to take early retirement. We are learning to live on a small fixed income. As my husband says, "We have sufficient for our needs. We are wealthy in that we don't have debt and can meet our obligations!" It is wonderful to live in this time of electronic wonders. How fine it is to have friends all over the world who I can talk to from my computer.

Why I am a Mormon

I find the clear simple teachings of the gospel to be to my liking. I love to read the scriptures and that we have more of them than other religions helps me to assemble my faith in a more complete way. It is important to me that we are taught to learn about all things under the earth; in the earth; on the earth; and above the earth. I recently read Skousen's "Stranger in a Strange Land: The Book of Enoch". I found it to be a powerful testimony builder as he compared the Book of Abraham and Enoch.

How I live my faith

I attend Sacrament Meeting with my husband on the Sabbath. I serve the Lord by preparing the bulletin (a program listing) for this meeting every week. I gather the information and assemble it along with quotes from the scriptures, from General Conference talks, and a picture. I try to teach the gospel through this means. I also do genealogy through indexing at familysearch.org. I try to share gospel centered ideas in my remarks on email and on Facebook.
