Hi I'm Evelyn

I'm from London Ontario. I like to decorate. I love being with my grandchildren & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the east with 13 children in our family. It was crazy with all the antics of living with 7 sisters and 6 brothers. I moved away from the east and went to the west were I reside now. I'm loven it out here.... We have two sons one that is married with two beautiful daughters a beautiful wife that is always hard at work and the youngest with a girlfriend. My husband and I love to spend time with our granddaughters as they keep us young and very busy. I enjoy decorating the house and have had many opportunities in doing renovations with my husband in our home. Always a learning experience... We love getting together with our children and the grandchildren to have fun play games and learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I lost my three month old son when I was in my twenties and that is when I started to ask myself is there a purpose to life. Was that the end of my sweet little boy? Would I ever see him again? That is when I asked God to help me understand why this was happening to me and to help me understand the meaning of life as I wanted to hold my son again some day in my arms. I was making unwise decisions in my life then and needed a loving hand to help me. I was a member of the church in my early years however the principles and doctrines of the gospel where never really taught in our home. I remember so clearly when I was baptized when the priesthood laid their hands on my head to give me the gift of the holy ghost I felt such an overwhelming feeling of peace and love. I new there was a loving Heavenly Father that was just waiting for me to ask him for help. The death of my son brought me back to the gospel as I was out of control and a loving Heavenly Father new just what I needed to get my attention. We are all different individuals in the things we need to learn and how we learn them not everyone learns the way I did but a wise loving father new how to help me. One day shortly after my sons death I was out in a very secluded area as I was really having a hard time with my emotions and I seen my son and his message was that he was proud of me for looking into the gospel and to say that he was Ok as I was not at home when he passed away. I am so glad for prayer and to be humbled and know that God does live and has a plan for us all. Since then almost thirty three years later I have come to know many truths of the gospel and one in particular we can all be sealed together for eternity as a family to live with God and Jesus Christ again. I am now sealed to my husband and my children and look forward in seeing my son in the life here after.

How I live my faith

I have been serving in my community for about seven years now in programs with the elderly. I enjoy their company and the wisdom they have to offer. I also teach in primary the C.T.R 5 class, they teach me so much about being humble. They are five going on six but their wisdom sometimes makes me forget that they are very young. I also am a ward missionary and love to talk with people about the gospel and how its blessing bless my life and can bless theirs too.
