Hi I'm June.

I'm a Mormon. I joined the church when I was 15. I didn't realize the importance of what I had until I lost it.

About Me

I am retired, and house/pet-sit. I also exercise in the warm therapy pool at the local recreation center. I have 2 grown daughters and a grandson that I enjoy spending time with. After joining the LDS church at age 15, I left the church in my early 20's and married outside my faith and joined another church. I knew it was a mistake to give up my faith right from the start, but tried to make the best of it because it was already done. Forty plus years later, I found my way back to the Mormon Church, where I felt instantly at home and at peace. The true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today gives me more joy than I can describe. Before I came back to the church, I feared death, and now I realize it is just a natural part of life, in fact, a continuation of life, and that we will return to our loving Heavenly Father, if we live obediently and follow the commandments he has given us.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong testimony that this is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. That testimony never died for the over forty years that I was away from the church. I am so grateful for second chances. I thought there was no going back once I joined the Catholic Church. And I promised to raise my children in the Catholic Church. After 23 years, I was divorced and wandered, searching for meaning in my life. When I attended an LDS funeral for my nephew's newborn son, I realized I belonged back in the Mormon Church. I thought I wouldn't be accepted back, so I didn't even attempt going back until some years later. I was befriended at a therapy pool I attended by a Mormon lady and subsequently returned to the church of my heart. I am so thankful to a loving heavenly father that forgives and welcomed me back with open arms.

How I live my faith

I thy to live the commandments to the best of my ability. This includes: 1) keeping the Word of Wisdom, not polluting my body with alcohol, drugs or tobacco 2) paying my tithing, one tenth of earnings 3) living the law of chastity, not having sex outside of marriage and dressing modestly 4) not using profanity 5) keeping the Sabbath a holy day devoted to the Lord - reading scriptures, spending time with family, staying away from the media and the evils of the outside world. 6) serving others in need 7) daily prayer to Heavenly Father 8) daily scripture reading 9) trying not to be judgmental of others I produce the church bulletin distributed every Sunday in my ward. I really feel that I am making a worthwhile contribution and enjoy it immensely. I also visit/teach several women in my church. It is really a form of friendship - getting to know other ladies and becoming sensitive to their needs so that you can be of help to them.
