Hi I'm Rayola Septon

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in a predominately mormon town in southern Idaho and have been a member of this church all of my life.

About Me

I am a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. My first husband died in 1979, leaving me with four children to raise. I remarried five years later to a man with 4 grown children. Together we now have 8 children, 30 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. Every Sunday, my son and his family, who live close by, come to Sunday dinner. I also enjoy sewing, crocheting, walking, and bicycling.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Mormon church and it is a way of life for me. I can't imagine living without guidance that the church provides. Over the years I have developed a strong testimony of the church and its teachings. It is such a comfort to have a living prophet on the earth to give us guidance. I know that our prophet, Thomas S Monson is called of God to guide and direct this church at this time. I know that I am a child of God and that he knows me personally and loves me. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and through him I can live again with my Heavenly Father. I know that families are forever and we will have the opportunity to be together in the eternities.

How I live my faith

I attend my church meetings regularly and enjoy the companionship of other members. At the present time I am the employment specialist in our ward and work with those who are looking for work. I try to encourage them in their job search and help them with job leads and skills for getting a job. I also help in our women's organization planning events to help the women improve themselves in all facets of life. I try to always be a good example and live in accordance with the teachings of the church.
