Hi I'm Pam

I was born in California, and have lived in the US, Germany, Jordan, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Croatia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived many lives! I served in the military. I studied Anthropology & Middle East Archeology including a dig in the Middle East. I also studied clinical counseling and computer science. I've done counseling with children and families in a variety of environments. I've worked in the software and computer world, and I loved working for myself in my own company. I love doing family history and helping others to find their ancestors. I enjoy quilting, knitting, reading, studying, and just about anything active! And I love horses, cats, rabbits, birds. I'm a wife, a step-mother and grandmother, sister, and aunt. We have had many years of fun times with family camping, hiking, cooking, riding our horses and bikes, fishing, working, learning, water-fights, making hay-bale swimming pools, and so much more! My husband and I have loved to hike, backpack, camp, kayak, snorkel, boogie board, watch and identify birds and animals and travel together.

Why I am a Mormon

It's simple. I'm a Mormon because I believe the doctrine. I know that the doctrine of the Church is the doctrine of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. I know that I must be obedient, but more than that, I WANT to be obedient. I WANT to be what Jesus and Heavenly Father want me to be. That makes me happy and brings me peace and joy in life.

How I live my faith

I have taught doctrine to young people, to children and to adults. I help people find their ancestors, answer questions about using family history software. I donate time, effort, teaching skills, and supplies to humanitarian causes such as making quilts, blankets, hats, clothing that are needed all over the world. I have helped make hygiene kits, receiving blankets, and newborn kits for those in need whether it is long term or an emergency situation. There is joy in service. I want to continue to serve and dedicate my service and life to my Savior Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

We are to assist those in need regardless of religious affiliation. When I make and donate quilts and other needed items, I know that they are going where they are needed anywhere in the world. Those items are freely given to comfort those in need, to give warmth, to allay hunger, simply to help with no strings attached. All of us are children of our Father in Heaven regardless of our circumstances or where we live. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is the best thing in my life. Learning of God's plan for us, his children, brings joy into our lives. I mean real joy, not just transitory thrills or fun. Following the commandments of Jesus, being obedient, brings a freedom to life that is not attainable any other way. The eternal perspective that we all can have by understanding the doctrine of Jesus brings peace and comfort into life. The things of the world cannot compete with the things of God.
