Hi I'm Diana

I was born in Idaho and grew up in Idaho, Utah and Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of five children who are mostly grown up and out of the house. We have five grandchildren. I love to read and paint. I do crafts and sew. I enjoy meeting new people and doing nice things for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the church. My ancestors made lots of sacrifices to come as pioneers to this country to embrace the Gospel. I have always known that the Gospel is true. I am grateful for those who left lives in England and Europe to come here so that they could join the Saints. We all have to gain our own testimonies. I don't remember any specific time when I was sure that I had a testimony but I feel like I have always known of the truthfulness of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I have served in many calling in the church. I have had leadership callings in the Church. I love teaching the Gospel. I enjoy serving the sisters that I visit each month as a visiting teacher. I have a great calling helping with Compassionate Service in our ward now.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

We wear our best clothing for church on Sunday. Men typically wear dress pants, a white shirt and tie. Some wear suits or sport coats. Women wear modest dresses or skirts and blouses. Children wear nice clothing also girls in dresses and boys in pants or shorts and a nice shirt...as they get older they wear dress pants, white shirt and ties. We celebrate Christmas and Easter because we feel like they are significant days to remember the birth, suffering,death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. We enjoy all holidays. We celebrate local and national holidays. We remember birthdays, and anniversaries and other fun holidays during the year. We also celebrate July 24th as Pioneer Day. The day when the pioneers came into the Salt Lake Valley. Show more Show less
