Hi I'm Irene

I am a wife, a stay at home mom, and a grandma! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have loved being able to stay at home with my children as they were growing up, it has blessed my life! I have been married to my sweetheart, Don, for 29 years. My favorite pastime is being with my family(children, grandchildren, siblings, in laws, ect.)! I love the outdoors, camping, hiking, and running. I am a full time caregiver for my sweet, 90 year old mother. I am the mother of 6 fantastic children, 5 strong, caring sons and one beautiful, happy daughter, ranging in ages from 27 to 9. I have 2 amazing daughter in laws and I am a grandma to the cutest twin girls and I love playing with them! I love, love playing volleyball especially with my daughter. I recently started college and am taking America Sign Language and hope to get certified in that. I am a native to Arizona and I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to an active Mormon family, we always attended church and other church activities, but I had to gain my own testimony that it was the right thing for me. I received that testimony when I was 18 years old---it was undeniable and there was no turning back once I 'knew'! I am grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who loves His children and has a plan for each of us and who sent His son, Jesus Christ to pay the price for our sins so that we could have the opportunity, if we chose, to return to live with Him again! I am grateful for the knowledge that I can be with my family(the most important part of my life) for eternity and that I don't have to travel this life alone. I have the support and love of my husband, children, siblings, parents, my Heavenly Father, and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I couldn't do it alone and I am glad I don't have to, nobody does! What a blessing. I know that we have a Prophet today that receives revelation from God for each of us today and if I will listen and follow what we are taught, I will make it back to my Heavenly Home!

How I live my faith

Going to my church meetings each Sunday lifts me and strengthens me to do my daily responsibilities with a smile on my face and joy in my heart! I enjoy learning more about Jesus Christ and His life and service, so that I can do my best to be like Him. I try to treat others with kindness, respect, and love and to see each person as our Father in Heaven sees them! I am not perfect at doing that, but I am working on it each day. I have been blessed to serve in many areas in the church and it has blessed me and helped me to learn to love the people I serve. I try to be the best wife, mother, grandma, and daughter that I can be and I will continue to try my best in all I do in the hopes that I will touch someone's life for good! I currently work with the young women in our area and they are such good examples to me of faith, obedience with exactness, purity, happiness, and helpful individuals! I am blessed in my life through reading from the scriptures everyday and praying for help, guidance, and strength from God in all I do. I love my life, my family, Jesus Christ, and His Gospel!!!!
