Hi I'm Mary Jean Sims

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 48 years. I have 3 sons who are all married and have 9 grandchildren. I love to read and to do service in the Church. But the thing that I really enjoy is spending time with my grandchildren, they are the joy of my life. I tease my children that I should have had them first.

Why I am a Mormon

I first joined the church because my husband was a member and after having taken the lessons I liked the teachings but I did not have a testimony of my own until much later. I was active in church for many years but then went through a time that I became inactive because of events that happened in my life. What a waste of years when I was inactive and I am so glad to be back where I am suppose to be. I have a such a love of the gospel and of my Heavenly Father. I try each day that is left here on earth to do what I believe will be pleasing unto him and will make Christ and his Father proud that I am a child of God.

How I live my faith

I am a counselor in the women's organization of the church and a visiting teacher. I taught in children before I was called as counselor. I love doing service for the other sisters and their families. I have come to love the study of the scriptures and learning all I can about what Christ wants me to be and to do.
