Hi I'm Peggi

I am a convert to the church. My life has been richly blessed because of this decision. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a convert to the church. I joined alone when my first two children were age 3 and newborn. My husband joined the church 11 years and 2 children later. Our 5th child was born 3 years after we were sealed in the Temple. My husband and I have been happily married 37 years, due in great part because of what we have learned since becoming members of TheMormon. We have been blessed to raise our 5 children with the inspiration, love and standards we have learned at church. They are all strong, active members as well. We have had challenges, but having the gospel has given us the strength to move forward in faith. We know our Father in Heaven has a plan for us. We are grateful for the blessings we've received from the gift of membership in the Lords church. We are grateful for the Book of Mormon and its truth. Being an entrepreneur and have enjoyed business ventures which have allowed me to work from home while raising my children. My husband and children have worked with me in much that I have done. It has taught us all the importance of serving those we love. Consequently some my children have started their own business, which the family has often joined in to help with, when needed. We love working together. Our family unity is due to the church. Church programs are designed to help children, youth of all ages and adults to grow closer to our Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ. We will be eternally grateful for the blessings that the church has afforded our family.

Why I am a Mormon

After becoming a parent for the first time, I started having questions about life in general. I had been raised in a Christian home and attending church every Sunday was a part of our family life. When I started feeling there was something more than what I had been taught all of my life, I began asking questions. I spoke with the minister of the church I had attended all of my life. He could not answer my questions, and simply told me the things I wanted to know were part of the “mysteries of God” and I just had to have faith. I have always been one to search for answers, asking “why” to nearly everything. I continued asking friends of other faiths what they believed. I had attended many churches, and was continually searching, when I was invited by my sister to attend the church she had recently joined, Mormon Church. Upon entering the chapel, the Spirit bore witness to me that this was THE church. I began taking the missionary discussions the next day. The two young elders were able to answer all of my questions, with answers that made sense and felt right. I was baptized a short time later. My life changed in amazing ways, and continually improved because of my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my religion daily with scripture study, prayer and meditation. I attend my Sunday meetings with my family each week. We have Family Home Evening every Monday night. We make temple attendance a regular part of our week. I have taught young children in the Primary program, teenagers in Sunday school and the Young Women’s program. I have had the honor of serving and teaching women in the largest women’s organization in the world, which is called Relief Society. I have learned so much in each class, and enjoyed every minute of my membership.
