Hi I'm Monica

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I´ve been married to my husband for 29 years and we have eight children and four grandchildren. One of our daughters died at age 14. I have been a stay-at-home mom since our oldest child was born 28 years ago. That has been most fullfilling. I love my garden and I love scrapbooking, and with such a big family there is no end of all my possabilities!

Why I am a Mormon

I was a big admirere of The Osmonds when I was young and later I saw a book about "their" church and I wanted to know more about what they believed. I was so surprised when I realized that they had had the truth all along. It thad been so close to me for years without me knowing so. I became a member and has ever since been most grateful to the Lord for showing me the way. I know that God is my Heavanly Father and that he knows me and loves me. I am so grateful to my Savior for taking my sins and my burdens upon Himself. I love being a member of this wonderful church.

How I live my faith

Taking care of my own spiritual needs and taking care of my family is my first priority in life. But I also love working in my church callings. At the moment I work with the children and it is so rewarding getting to know them and teaching them about who they are and how much they are loved by Heavanly Father and our Savior. God fills your heart with his love for those you serve when you do his will and that is so wonderful.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Monica
Yes, we can be together forever. When our daughter died The Lord gave me the most wonderful peace in my heart, telling me that all I ever believed to be true really is. I know I will meet her again and hold her in my arms, which is such a comforting knowlage for a mother. Knowing that I will be with my husband and children forever makes me want to be kinder and more loving than I would otherwise be. Show more Show less
