Hi I'm Faith

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was lucky enough to be raised in a small town where neighbors were friends, we could play "kick the can" or "run sheep run" at night and never worry about being safe, because it was safe. Being a kid was a fun time. Having 4 sisters and a brother was also fun and challenging. Mom and Dad taught us the importance of Sunday worship by their example. Mom played the piano at the church and Dad was in the men's group. I will always be grateful for giving me a foundation to build on as I grew older. I am married to an awesome man, we have 3 awesome children and 12 even more awesome grandchildren. I love being with them and making family memories.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I were of different faiths and having moved away from our childhood home; attending church alone was difficult for me. But with encouragement from my good husband to seek out a church and attend regulary I contacted the LDS (Mormon) church who introduced me to a better life. Yes, my faith is my life, and the doctrine of "families are forever" brought me to the waters of baptism and anchors me to my Savior Jesus Christ, whose family we are. My children and my grandchildren are incredible examples to me of living the gospel of Jesus Christ whose church this is. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith with all the rights and priviledges and blessings of the holy Priesthood. How wonderful to live now having the joy of the fullness of the gospel on the earth.

How I live my faith

In our church opportunities for service come often as we accept callings to teach the gospel. It has been a joy to me to teach in the Primary and feel the spirit as those little children sing so sweetly their love for the Savior. I am blessed to teach and learn as I study the lessons for the women of the church. Being a visiting teacher has allowed me to be in their homes and be available to them in their times of need. I so enjoy those sisters who come to visit me each month and know I can also call upon them in my challenges as well. The brethren of the church are always available to my husband and I to bring us blessings and encouragement. On occasion we have been able to participate in the humanitarian canning and find that fun and a help for those in need in the community. There are so many ways to serve and lift hearts.
