Hi I'm Ruth

I'm Wife to a marvelous man, mother of 3 gorgeous super women, grandmother to 9 3/4 children, daughter .

About Me

I joined the Church as a teenager in a community that had only 3 other LDS youth. Attended Arizona State Universtiy then married my friend from High school. This was during the Vietnam war and he was in the Navy aboard a very small ship stationed in San Diego. After his tours we moved to our home town where both sets of parents lived making it great for our 3 girls to know their grandparents. While in this small community I was blessed to be a Seminary teacher to a group of outstanding youth. These youth had no support to attend but they found their own transportation to make sure they always attended. They were such a testimony to me in their strenght of character. I loved them. I have been blessed to hold most positions in the church that women can hold. My favorite of which are the teaching callings that I have had because I have been able to strengthen my testimony of Jesus Christ in learning the gospel and being with some ery strong individuals.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior. At the time the stake missionaries brought my brother and I the gospel there was never a doubt that Jesus was the Christ that Joseph Smith organized this church on earth through the power of God. I am so thankful our family can be together forever. My family has been so very blessed because of our being members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our beautiful girls have had strong testimonies from their very earliest and they have brought their testimonies to our family. My husband and I were learning the Gospel as our girls were growing up and they were such a strength to thisr learning and developing our own testimonies.

How I live my faith

I am thankful for my callings as a Visiting Teacher and Visiting Teaching Supervisor and ward Librarian. My partner in Visiting Teaching is my oldest daughter and it is such a joy tobe with her, she is always ready to go and so happy to be wit out sister.
