Hi I'm Patty Hill

I Joined the church after the Missionaries introduced me to the Book of Mormon

About Me

 I joined the church just before my 14th birthday. I have cherished my church membership throughout my life. I found my wonderful husband and we have been married almost 30 years. We have actively raised our four children in the church and have been very grateful to have the gospel in our lives. One of our children has served a two year mission in Tempe, AZ.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was raised in So CA and had been looking for a good church to join. My parents were supportive of my desires to go to any church I was invited to go to because they did not belong to any. Although they were of Christian faith, they suffered from alcoholism and they were glad I found a good church to attend for my teenage years. They have not ever joined themselves. But they have always admired the values the church teaches.

How I live my faith

 I love having family prayer and praying side by side with my husband. I am honored to teach the 16/17 year old Sunday School class. Right now we are studying the New Testament. I love the stories of Jesus. He is the Master Teacher of how to live our lives.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Patty Hill
 Politics and religion are not often spoken in public conversations. One avoids these as not to offend someone else they may be trying to get to know. Missionaries are expected to discuss religion. This gives the public opportunities to ask specific questions and to get the correct answer. If you want to know a medical question you do not ask a mechanic. Or a doctor who has lost his license. Likewise people may wonder about the church and go to sources other than directly to active church members, thus receiving inaccurate information. Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Patty Hill
 The only way to know if Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion is to pray. The Lord will give you the answer by the power of the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
