Hi I'm Gail

I grew up in Utah then moved to Washington after I married. I'm a Wife, a Mom, and a Grandma. I've been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I love to spend time with our children and 19 grandchildren. My husband and I have been married almost 50 years. He is very good to me and we are very happy. We are retired, but continue to give service in the Church. I was able to be a stay-home Mom and care for our children. I like to make cute greeting cards, handouts, and do scrapbooking on my computer. I like to sew for my grandchildren, crochet, make beaded jewelry, and to do crafts. I am very blessed to be able to do all these things!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. My parents are Mormon and we went to Church as a family. My husband and all our children and grandchildren are active members of the Mormon Church. I learned for myself as a teenager that the Church is true through prayer, by reading the Book of Mormon, and attending Church meetings regularly. I'm grateful for the lifestyle the Church teaches because it helps me to be healthy and happy and gives me direction in life. I'm happy to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I regularly participate in weekly Church meetings, read my Scriptures and pray daily, and abstain from harmful drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. My husband and I have been faithful to each other for our entire marriage. I have taught classes in Church to children, teenagers, and adults. I have also been in leadership positions in the Church. I visit several other women in the Church monthly to make sure they are doing well. I give volunteer service in the Seattle Temple each week and also with my husband as Church-Service Missionaries with other retired couples. I am happy to be a Mormon!
