Hi I'm Diana

I grew up & spent some of my adult life as an USAF dependent & I've lived all over the world. I still love to travel! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a single mother, I have a full-time job in a residential facility for at-risk youth and I'm starting my Master's program for Counseling in the Fall of '11. I love to have friends over for dinner, throw movie parties, play games, and go hiking, biking and camping. I'm learning to play the piano and I draw and paint too.

Why I am a Mormon

The day the the missionaries knocked on my door, I had my phone book open to the yellow pages because I was looking for a church. I knew that first lesson that this was the place that I wanted for myself and for my family. I still took a little bit of time to make sure that I wasn't making some irrational, spur-of-the-moment decision but now, 7 years later, I know that it was undeniably one of the best decisions that I've ever made in my entire life. I followed the counsel of those missionaries and I sought to know for myself if the Book of Mormon was in fact another testimony of Jesus Christ. Through my own study and prayer, I came to a sure knowledge that it was.

How I live my faith

I use daily prayer to guide me in all my life decisions. My children and I never miss a sacrament meeting - it keeps us centered on what is important in our lives. Just recently, I had the opportunity to switch shifts at my work. I had been working a swing shift that meant that my children had to do their homework on their own, get their own dinner and put themselves to bed, 4 nights a week. There was a shift available that I could be home every night but we would not be able to attend church as a family. Usually in our household when we have a big decision to make, we talk about it, then we say a family prayer. We go our separate ways for a little while and then sit down to talk again once we have all had time to ponder the solution over in our hearts. After considering the possible schedule change, my children all concluded that it was more important to go to church as a family than to have me home to help them at night. In my ward, my calling is to serve with the missionaries. I so enjoy meeting new people who are searching to find out information about what we are all about and whether or not this could be for them. I love to help with the service projects that we have done for disaster areas as well as in our own town. It feels so right to spend a little bit of my time working on something that will make such a meaningful difference to someone else.
