Hi I'm Marilyn

Utah born, raised in Calif. Love my life. I'm a Mormon. Married a great man twice and a mother of 5 exciting children.

About Me

I love the theater, I have been involved in producing and directing musical theater most of my life. I love to interact with the youth of the LDS church. My faith has made my life a joy. I lost my first husband, a great man, Gene Campbell to brain cancer 18 years ago. I remarried another great guy and now I have the unique opportunity to call 5 more children loved, altogether we have 10 children. I cherish being a mother. I am a kidney transplant recipient. Donated by my nephew Greg Driggs. I have survived brain surgery with a little sight impairment, but life is good. I also love nature and I am renewed and refreshed in the mountains and streams. And I mean in the streams.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Father in Heaven and His restored Gospel. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ has been fully restored in" The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." My testimony is sure and has brought me through so many trials in life with a joy beyond measure. My Savior, Jesus Christ, has nurtured me all along my journey. I have been blessed throughout my life with a great family and true friends. I'm truly excited about each new day and rejoice in my opportunity to live it.

How I live my faith

I am Ward Music Chairman, I teach Jewelry Design Workshops when asked. I love getting to know new friends through Visiting Teaching. It is such a unique opportunity to visit in the homes of people in your community and neighborhood. My husband and I served a mission in Arkansas. We served in the Mission Office and we were also given the opportunity to teach the Gospel. I love the people in Arkansas, they are warm, friendly and loving people. We stay in contact and have had some come and stay with us since our return. The opportunities to serve in my faith have increased my confidence, skill and interpersonal relations. My real love of music and theater became a revelation to me as I was asked to accomplish tasks beyond my wildest dreams. I have a willing heart and enjoy the chance to challenge my strengths and abilities. I have learned most of the skills for a successful life through the organizations of my church. I have counseled people in many different situations in life and I have learned sound attributes for myself. I am so grateful for my membership in the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ, with a living prophet to guide me in life.

What do Mormons believe about family?

The family is the bases of all societies. When the family functions with love and order, living and acting within the laws, societies are successful. The world could exist in peace if each family took the responsibility to nurture, teach and love each other. Show more Show less
