Hi I'm DeeAnn

I'm a Mormon. I was born in Utah and moved as an adult to Minnesota where we live near my husbands extended family.

About Me

I am married to a man who loves me and we have 7 wonderful children. 5 of them are currently married, 1 is on a mission for the church in California, and 1 is still in High School. We have 12 beautiful grandchildren.  I love to sing, play piano and organ. I enjoy woodworking, sewing, gardening, baking and visiting with my family and friends. I enjoy travelling, getting acquainted with other people and areas of the world. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in the church and am so grateful to have the gospel in my life. It is my life, my joy and my reason for living. Being with my family eternally is what I live for. I have felt the Holy Spirit touch my heart with the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Living His gospel has brought me great joy and fulfillment.

How I live my faith

 I have grown tremendously through the service opportunities I have had in the church. I have worked in the youth program, the womens organization, and childrens organizations, as well as played the piano and organ for different services. I am blessed to sing with an wonderful choir where we sing songs of faith and love. I live my faith each day as I try to be an example of the Savior, loving those around me including my children and neighbors.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

 I have felt the Spirit of the Holy Ghost regularly in my life as I attended church meetings and listened to the messages there, studied the scriptures and prayed. In addition I have felt the Holy Ghost assist me in choosing my husband, in raising my children and in serving others. The Holy Spirit has comforted me and strengthened me after my parents passed away. It has given me knowlege and guidance. Show more Show less
