Hi I'm Maggie

I like spending time with my family and friends, sunny days and taking walks with my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life is my family. My husband and I will celebrate our 40th anniversary this year. I have 5 sons, 4 daughters-in-law and 11 grandchildren. I enjoy the sunshine, mountains, walks in the park, music, and anytime that I can spend with my family. I like feel-good books and movies with happy endings. If it makes me cry then it's a hit.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church. I knew about the Mormons through my husband's family. It wasn't until after having my first child that I felt the need to investigate and learn more. Family values and the way I felt when I attended for the first few times are what led me to join the church. The spirit touched my heart and ever since then the gospel of Jesus Christ has strengthened me, inspired me to be my best self, and taught me love and compassion for others. Life is full of opportunities, the church has helped me to make the most of what is given to me each day. I often make mistakes, but I know that I can be forgiven because He knows my weaknesses and loves me anyway. This gives me hope and peace.

How I live my faith

Sunday worship is the most important time of my week. I call it my "refueling" time. I get spiritually "filled" to carry on the rest of my week. Since joining the church I have had many opportunities to serve those in my ward and people in the community. Ours is a service oriented church so I have worked with the children and youth in our ward; teaching them on Sundays and weekday activities. Having 5 sons, I have had the opportunity to serve in the Boy Scouts organization as well. My faith has grown through the service I give to others. When we forget ourselves and serve those around us, we find ourselves and become more like our Savior, Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that families can be together forever. Families are the central part of God's plan. We are created in God's image and are sent here to a family. It is here that we learn who we are and why we are here. The family is where we are taught and learn to love and serve others.  Show more Show less
