Hi I'm Marty Dillon

I am a wife, a mom, and grandma and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a wonderful home with wonderful parents and siblings. I married my childhood sweetheart. My parents and his parents were best friends all our lives. I have four children. Two sons and two daughters. I am now the grandmother of 17! I love being with friends and family. I especially love serving others and making them laugh. I LOVE fun people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful for a Heavenly Father who knows me. I love Him and the Savior Jesus Christ. I have always known this church is true. I had grandparents who were wonderful examples of living Christ like lives. My parents followed their example and I am trying to follow my parents example. Living the standards of the church makes me truly happy. I try to live with no regrets but know that I am forgiven when I stumble. My life has been so blessed by following the Savior. The statement "obedience is freedom" sums up why I love the value system of the church. I want to be free!

How I live my faith

By being a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I have been given many opportunities to serve others and also be served. I have served with the youth, who are trying to do good things. I have served with the women of the church who help each other learn good things and do good things. I have also worked many years with the small children in the church. They are so trustworthy and such a joy! I work as a volunteer at our local hospital and enjoy being around people who need to be "lifted" at times, which in turn "lifts" me. I am always surprised how much having a "value system" of good in my life makes me happy.

What is being a Mormon like?

Marty Dillon
Being a Mormon is like having a "safety net" placed around me and my family. We can live together forever if we follow the prophet and avoid the evils of the world. This is my goal! Show more Show less
