Hi I'm LaDeana

I'm a Registered Nurse and a Professional Trainer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm married to loving and patient man. We have four children who are all adults now. I have many interests--the greatest is a need to learn. That is why I train. It requires me to keep learning so I can be a better tainer. I also get to travel all over the United States to do this training. When I'm home, I'm home. I don't like to eat out or go anywhere--that's because I've already done tht all week while I trained. Gardening, crafts such as cross stitch, reading, exercising and preparing healthy, good tasting meals occupy my time when I'm not traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in Salt Lake but my parents were not active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Mormons. I would have followed in their example if it had not been for the extraordinary example of some of my teachers. In ninth grade I attended Seminary this is a Mormon religious class held everyday for high school students because my friends did. My Seminary teacher taught me what a testimony was and encouraged me to read the Book of Mormon. By the end of that year, I had read the Book of Mormon twice, prayed about its truthfulness and received my own witness or testimony that the Book of Mormon was from God and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was Christ's Church on earth. This one year was the foundation for the rest of my life. Since that time, I have served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, married my husband in the Salt Lake Temple, and have tried to be a good example to all those around me. The Church is my foundation. All that I am, all that I do, all that I think and have become is because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because it is right and it is true.

How I live my faith

 I have had many "callings" as we call them or assignments in the Mormon Church since I have been an active member. The women's organization or Relief Society has been my foundation. One thing that I love to do is go Visiting Teaching. Visiting Teaching is something all adult women of the Church can participate in. As a Visiting Teacher I get to visit 3-4 women as least once per month. I also have a "companion" or partner who goes with me to those we visit teach. I try to not only visit them once a month but develop a special relationship with them--so they know I care about them and they can call me anytime--if they need help. Not only do I go Visiting Teaching but I have sisters that visit me. Talk about a great way to make sure that all the members are being watched over.
