Hi I'm Dyan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife for almost twenty years now and mother of five (two teenagers and three adults). I am very active and have a lot of different intersts. I enjoy running and other sports, animals, gardening and art. I have been an RN for about twenty years now working off and on in different settings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a "convert" to the church. I became a member when I was thirty years old. Growing up, I did not go to church or have a regilious affiliation. I did have a little exposure to the Mormon church because my grandparents were members. Even though I did not attend a church, I did have a belief in a higher being and I knew this higher being was kind, loving and only wanted the best for me. I did feel that there was something missing from my life growing up and off and on I would try to learn about religion but nothing really stuck. It was after I had children that I had a strong desire to raise my children with some sort of religion. I wanted this for my children - something that I missed growing up. I did not think my husband would be interested and so I was ready to take this on by myself. I was pleasantly surprise when he wanted to go as a family. The only church he was confortable attending was the Mormon church (he had been a member and had been inactive). We started going and as I continued to go and learn, I felt a strong feeling that this was right. Things made sense and things felt right. I know know that this was the spirit telling me that this was the right direction to go for myself and my family. I have been a member now for thirteen years and my understanding of the gospel grows every day. I have learned a lot over these past thirteen years and will continue to learn throughout my entire life. The gospel truely guides me and my family in the right direction. I love being a member of this church.

How I live my faith

In my church I teach a Sunday school class for 12-13 year olds. I love this role because the kids teach me so much and it puts me in a position to really study to Bible, Book of Mormon and history of the church. This age is wonderful to work with and they have tons of energy!!
