Hi I'm Marie

I love being a grandma and mother of five wonderful kids. I love to grow a garden. My husband and I ride a tandem. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like to research my ancestors from Sweden and England. Sometimes I have ridden a week long bike ride with family and love that time together. I love to play games with family and and cook food that I grew from my garden. I do not sew very much, but I love to make fun quilts for family. Exercising several times a week is a new thing for me and I feel good when I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I have experienced times in my life when I knew that God knows me and loves me. When I was new to a church congregation, no one knew me, but God knew me. In a blessing, things were said that no one would know. I know that God is real. He has helped me to be a better person and the scriptures teach me how to be a better person. The Holy Ghost helps me to feel that the scriptures are true. When I pray and think about this church, everything makes sense to me. I can see how God directs this church and how we rely on inspiration to do his will in all things. I have felt greatly blessed by being a member of this church and have devoted my life to service in this church and the people around me.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to teach children of all ages. You can see in their eyes how they really do love to learn about God and his church. The ages have been from 18 months to 18 years. As a leader, I ask God for help knowing what I should do for organizing and logistics with events and people. I have seen miracles and how well the Lord directs things because he knows the hearts and situations of that which is not evident to me. The best is when you see someone's life change for good. They have so much joy and feel so blessed when they change their behavior and their hearts are changed to wanting to follow Christ. God has blessed me geatly. I am happy to bless others by doing what I can to make life a little bit easier and sweeter for them.
