Hi I'm Charlotte

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I am a mormon!

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man and we have 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. I love to read, hike, camp, crochet, cross-stitch, embroidery, make easy quilts, dirt bike riding, boating, water-skiing, traveling, having fun with my kids. I work at times with my husband in our printing company. I play the piano and flute along with a little guitar and love singing with my children! We have a daughter serving a mission for the church in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission, I have 3 kids in college along with me! My youngest is a Senior. College has been a challenge for me after 30+ years, but I am loving it and am learning that I can still succeed towards a degree! I love taking community classes sometimes to learn new crafts or develop a skill I have already. I love a great joke and I love to laugh and spend time with family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a life long member. I can honestly say that I would be lost without the gospel. I know that my Savior loves me. He died, so that each of us would be able to live with our Heavenly Father again. We chose to come to earth. To be able to choose for ourselves the gospel of Jesus Christ. We choose to keep his commandments and to listen to his prophet. He wants us to succeed. He will do all in his power to help us to succeed. As we follow Him and obey Him we will be able know more happiness then we can hold. As we know Him, we will always have his help in all areas of our lives. I know we have a living prophet and apostles on the earth today, just as when Christ was on the earth and that it is the same gospel! We are blessed to know that our prayers can and will be answered. If we have faith, repent of our sins and do all we can to endure to the end, we will live with our Father in Heaven again!

How I live my faith

I find that as I forget myself and try to help those around me that I am happy. It does not have to be huge projects. It could be a phone call, letting someone know you are thinking of them. Bake some cookies, SMILE, Giving a complement. I love going to church and listening to those speaking. I love doing projects for the humanitarian center to help those around the world, or to take dinner for someone who is having a hard day. I love having my children's friends come over and feel comfortable to stay awhile. They are so much FUN!! I love reading the scriptures and learning what my Heavenly Father wants me to know. I have 4 callings! Sunday School teacher for the 12-13 year olds, Advancement Chairman for the young men scouts, Organ rotation and Relief Society pianist. I love being able to serve those in my ward and love them very much! I know I am a daughter of God and try to help others around me know they are children of God and that our Heavenly Father loves us so much! He wants us to succeed! Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ do all they can to help us to be able to return to live with them again! We are so blessed to know this! It is a blessing to know that we are here as part of the plan of Salvation and that we are strong enough to succeed if we have faith and believe.
