Hi I'm Pam

I'm a Mormon. I'm an organizer, a musician and lover of the arts and, foremost, a wife, Mother and Grandma.

About Me

Grammie Pammie is the nickname I'm known by to my grandchildren who now number 16! Who thought that I would have such a wonderful posterity. Since they all live far away, my husband and I have enjoyed travelling to visit with them and increase our relationships with them. I love family and organizing and have organized our family pictures, letters, histories, and memorabilia. By doing this, I have learned a great deal about those who came before me and appreciate their roles. I can see family traits in abilities, appearance and personality that show up in our posterity. I am so grateful for my ancestors. I also like music. My Mother was a musician so she gave her children the opportunity to take piano lessons. I play piano, organ and cello. I have taught some private piano lessons to students in my home. I am an accompanist and organist at Church and have enjoyed playing for soloists as well as choirs. For the past few years I'm playing in a community orchestra. We have three concerts a year and this has given me the opportunity to improve my cello playing. I have always enjoyed sports and exercise since I was young. I like bike riding, walking, tennis, pickle ball, basketball, and watching my children and grandchildren participating in these events.

Why I am a Mormon

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ brings me peace, satisfaction, and happiness. As the day to day events around the world occur around me, I have an eternal perspective which helps me understand the current events, which are not always happy and positive. I follow Christ and prophets. Christ's example is preeminent for me. I sustain a living prophet upon the earth today. By striving to live the precepts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I can make decisions and live my life in a way that encourages me to move forward. Although there are wars, earthquakes, floods, and so forth going on, I know that Christ will return to the earth and that all can have peace by turning to Him.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite service activities in our community is donating blood, since I feel this is one of the most selfless acts I can render. Over the years I have tried to donate every 90 days when the Red Cross sets up a blood drive here in our community. I know I have literally saved many lives by doing this. I was a school volunteer when my children were at home. It's my belief that children will succeed in school if you are involved in their schools and supporting their teachers and activities. I enjoy teaching and have served at church by teaching adults, teenagers, and children. By teaching others, it has helped me learn the Doctrines of Christ. I have also learned patience when working with others and how to love others. I also volunteer by serving the women around me. We help support each other by bringing messages from the scriptures and the prophets. We also help out with giving rides, making meals, helping with funerals, babysitting, etc. Basically, we are there for each other both in times of happiness as well as challenging and difficult times. Currently, we are very involved with helping refugees who come to our country. Recently we put together small supply kits for babies that were sent to Central America. Locally, I love going into homes and visiting with families to see what their joys and struggles are and how seeking Christ and living as He would live. This service has helped me keep perspective on my own problems, and assisted me in solving them.
