Hi I'm Margaret

My first school had a total of 6 students, I graduated with seven. I have been married over 50 years and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a homemaker and caregiver. I enjoy taking care of my home and family. My husband's health seems to be declining with age and our daughter has special needs. But she is such a blessing in our lives. I retired from the banking industry after over 30 years of employment. But still find other ways to make a little money by working at some part time jobs. But I really enjoy the opportunities I have to serve others, sewing, cooking, quilting, etc. What fun it is to serve as the clothing specialist for our Stake Trek! I even get to plan a wedding reception once in a while with the opportunity to make the cake, prepare the food, decorate the cultural hall or even alter the wedding gown.

Why I am a Mormon

I have known members of the Church since I was a teen-ager and admired them all. But it wasn't until after my father passed away that I really wanted to further investigate the Church. I attended other churches but was just a member, didn't seem as if I really belonged. When we joined we made a commitment that we would be active, if something was going on we would be involved. And therefore, we have had the opportunity to serve the Lord and other members of the church and community in many ways. The Church has become our way of life. The members are our familiy and friends. However, the main reason I am a Mormon is that I know the Gospel is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my saviour and redeemer and that only through Him can I have Enternal Life and return to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve in the Church. For years I have worked with the teen-age girls. Girls camp is a great opportunity to get to serve and get to know these young women. I've also had the opportunity to help plan some youth pioneer treks. There is probably nothing more important than helping our chidren to stay on the right path and to help their faith an testimonies grow so they can grow to be productive young adults and maintain their faith in Jesus Christ. And of course I've had lots of opportunity to work with and serve the women of the ward. Through our public affairs committee I have had lots of opportunities to serve others in the community, too. We have helped remodel a home against abuse and provide lots of needed equipment and supplies for them. I got to make several quilts for that project. We have gathered needed supplies for our local schools, etc. I'm currently looking for another way for our ward to serve our community this fall.
