Hi I'm Dorothy Letsch Burnett

I'm a Mormon. I joined the church in 1971. I grew up in the Bible belt in AR & used to be a Baptist.

About Me

I am a mom of 3 boys & 1 daughter & also have 11 grandchildren. Besides, the church, my family is the love of my life. I love to take photos, listen to book tapes, ride horses & just enjoy nature. I love flowers, butterflies, the ocean, people in general, & I love chocolate. Also, I loved being a stay at home mom.

Why I am a Mormon

My sister was killed in a private airplane crash on March 6, 1971. I could not find any peace at The First Baptist church or any other church. My husband worked with several Mormans. They suggested that he bring home Al Hall, a Stake President of the church. Al came to our home and answered my questions with scriptures from the Bible. He told me that Families can be Together Forever. Also, there are 3 different kingdoms that we can be in after our death. That really made sense to me. I had always wondered how it was fair that some people were murders, etc., but others were just not good people. So, if they didn't go to Hell, why were they allowed to go to Heaven. I loved the scripture that said, I knew thee before I knew thee in the womb. We are spirit children of our Heavenly Father. I knew that my sister would be taught the Gospel & have the chance to accept it or not. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has changed my life. It gives me strength, faith and hope. Read the Book of Morman and pray over whether it is true or not. I can't answer that for you. But, the Lord can & will if you pray sincerely over what you have read. You will feel peace. God bless you all, Dorothy

How I live my faith

We have callings in our Church. At present, I am Visiting Teacher supervisor. Most of our ladies keep up with 2-4 other ladies & see them, at least monthly. We are asigned to them to give aid, if necessary, support them spiritually and to see if they &/or their families are doing ok. Giving this service to them allows the church to be able to be there for everyone. The men also see the families and check up on theirs needs. The Church does need all of us. Where much is asked, much is given. I vote. I am a Conserative Republican. I try to help make calls when an election is coming up. I support our military. I am so proud of them and all they do to serve & protect us. I always try to be honest in all of my actions. I know with out a doubt that this Church is true. I have prayed about it & had a confirmation of this truth. Please read the Book of Mormon, Then, pray to the Lord and ask if it's true. Only God can give you the answer.
