Hi I'm Pam

I love life. I have 4 kids, I teach math teachers, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three boys and a girl. I was a high school math teacher and now I teach math teachers (graphing calculators) and I write about teaching math. I enjoy martial arts, reading, baking, and playing with my kids.

Why I am a Mormon

There is a God and he loves me. He has a plan, a plan of happiness, for me. I have had many occasions where I have heard answers from God. This is His church and I gain from being part of it.

How I live my faith

Currently I am the secretary of the women's organization at the regional level. With 3 wonderful women, we plan and carry out a few large events for women in our area. We also train local women in leadership. I love rubbing shoulders with these women of faith. They teach and inspire me to be a better mother, wife, and woman. I also visit 3 women who live near me once a month - we share messages of faith and we help each other with life's events.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Pam
Mormons strive to live honest, clean, helpful, and hopeful lives. We live by a health code that helps us treat our bodies with respect - stay away from addictive things, eat well, exercise, get sufficient sleep, stuff like that. We pray, read scriptures, attend church, and try to keep the commandments. Families are very important - we believe that we can be with them together forever. We serve in the church voluntarily and we don't get to choose what we do. Leaders ask us to teach young children, speak in the church service, visit one another, plan activities, etc. We can turn them down, but we usually don't because we believe that God is in charge. Because God is in charge, we live lives of hope because no matter what hard things we have to face, we know that there is a purpose. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Pam
Absolutely! The real name of our church is "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints". Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world - he lived and died for all of us. He is the author and finisher of our faith. Show more Show less
