Hi I'm Nannette

I'm a Mom, a Grandma, a business owner and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending fun time with family, sewing, crocheting and knitting, and designing for my business. I love the outdoors, and just relaxing...something I don't get to do too often! I just might go back to college to finish my degree after our youngest graduates from high school. I have 6 kids, all married now except one still at home...so I guess we will be empty nesters soon! From those married kids, I have 9.6 grandchildren...number 10 due this year. My husband and I are looking forward to spending some alone time together when our last goes off to college, but we are already missing him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Catholic by a very religious Catholic mom! I felt the Holy Ghost in my life at an early age, and always had a relationship with the Lord. But something was always missing...something I could just never put my finger on. As a young adult, I stopped going to church because I could not accept some of the things I had been taught. Then, when my first child was born, I felt a great responsibility to teach him of the Lord, and my heart opened a little to having religion in my life again. I was asked by Mormon friends to attend an event where a movie was shown...it was called Ancient America Speaks, and it explained about the mysterious pyramids in South America, how they got there, and about the people who built them. I knew instantly that these things were true...I can't explain how other than to say that the deep spiritual feelings I had that night told me so. I began taking the missionary lessons because I wanted to know more, and with each lesson, that same spirit continued to testify to me that what I was being taught was true. It was hard to overcome some of the things I had been taught as a child, but I learned that when you trust in the answers the Lord gives you, you will always be on the right path.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by first trying hard to serve my family members...to create a harmonious spirit within the walls of our home. I help in the Welfare program of our church by guiding people who are underemployed or chronically unemployed to get back on the right path and to learn how to make good decisions affecting their own welfare and the welfare of their families. I am a visiting teacher, and each month visit 4 or 5 ladies. We chat about our lives, our children, our problems and help to find solutions. Bringing dinner or treats to someone who is feeling a bit down is a really fun thing to do. I love to serve others...to help or uplift someone, especially when they don't expect it. Showing love for others is actually showing love for our Saviour.
