Hi I'm DeeAnn

I am a mother, grandmother, teacher assistant, and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I have four adult children, three boys and one girl. My oldest son is both blind and autistic. I was raised in southern Utah, but lived in Oregon for eleven years, enabling my oldest son to attend the Oregon School for the Blind. Our family enjoyed living outside of Utah during that time. The church and members are strong in Oregon and we made life-long friends. When I am not working at school, I enjoy being with my own children and grandchildren. Family means everything to me! I also like celebrating Christmas and vacationing at Disneyland.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel such peace being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Because of the teachings of the church, I am reminded daily of who I am, where I came from, why I am here and what I must do to feel peace not only in this life, but beyond the grave.

How I live my faith

I pray, read the scriptures and attend Sunday services. But more importantly, I try every day to live the gospel by loving and serving others, beginning with my own family.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Families can be together forever. I don't know about you, but I adore my family and want to be with them always. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We absolutely believe the Bible is Holy Scripture, as long as it is translated correctly. We believe the King James version is the most correct. We also believe the Book of Mormon is another testament of God. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We can increase our faith in Christ the same way we increase or develop any skill or talent...by study and practice and work. We can learn of Jesus and His teachings through reading the scriptures. As we pray and ponder and act on His words, our faith in Christ will grow. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a written compilation of teachings recorded by ancient prophets. While the Holy Bible documents words of prophets from the Eastern Hemisphere, the Book of Mormon records teachings by prophets who lived on the American continent. Show more Show less
