Hi I'm Angela

I'm a mom, a grandmother, a wife, an indexer, reader, pianist, dark chocolate lover and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been happily married for 30 years. I have 3 sons and 2 daughters. I love to travel, read, watch movies, and bake. I play the piano and the organ. I am a volunteer "indexer" and enter information from documents into a database that help people who are searching for their ancestors.  I am Grandmother to one adorable grandson that I love!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon home, and learned much about Jesus Christ and His teachings. When I was a teenager I wanted to know for myself if everything my parents and church leaders had taught me was really true. I wanted to know if the Book of Mormon was true and if Joseph Smith was really a prophet and saw God and Jesus Christ. I read the Book of Mormon and sincerely prayed for an answer. My prayer was answered and just like Joseph Smith, I knew that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was Christ's true church restored to the earth once more. These many years later I still feel the same way and the Holy Ghost continues to reaffirm my first feelings.

How I live my faith

I enjoy working with children/teenagers. When my boys were young I was a Cub Scout den leader. I was the President of our church organization for children ages 3-11 in our congregation and I have worked with young women ages 12-18. I play the organ for our worship service. I volunteer with the largest women's organization in the world--The Relief Society. Serving others is what brings me true happiness!

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Angela
Did you know that missionaries from our church pay for their own missions? Some of the cost of missionary work is paid for through tithing funds from church members. But each young man or young woman who chooses to serve a mission will help pay for their housing, utilities and other expenses during the 2 years for young men or 18 months for young women while they are gone. Many married couples or older single people also serve missions. They pay for all expenses for their missions! My oldest son chose to serve a mission. He spent 2 years in the country of Suriname which is part of the West Indies Mission. He worked at a car wash during high school to save money for his mission. He saved enough for 1/2 of the cost, then his Dad and I helped him with the rest. My 2nd son served a mission in Taiwan. He worked to save money for his mission too. My last son is currently serving a mission in the Micronesia Guam Mission and also worked to save money for his mission. My husband and I are also planning on serving a mission together in the future and have our own mission fund! When you see a young Mormon missionary, please remember that they worked and saved, and their parents probably helped them financially, so they could go forth and share God's great plan of happiness which is priceless!
