Hi I'm Paula

Six sons, & two daugthers call me mom, Seven others call me grandma and I am a Mormon!

About Me

Six sons and two daugthers call me mom, and a grandma to seven. Four brothers one sister call me sis. I love taking care of my family (most days), enjoy making up recipes and trying them out on my family, working on computers. I enjoy my Kindle/reading, spending time with my husband (that I have been married to for 36 years) traveling and getting a good nights rest.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by a very spiritual strong mother, my father was a member but didn't go to church. I saw how strong she was to raise the 6 of us in the gospel alone. I felt the spirit when I was very young girl not quite 7 yrs old. I was giving a talk in Sunday school as I gave this talk the spirit over took me and from that moment I knew the church was true. I have never fallen away I know it is true.

How I live my faith

When I wake in the morning I know I am a child of God and I must live the best I can. I have enjoyed having callings or service jobs in the church. I continue to teach or help in primary, my favorite orgainization. Organizing parties, dinners, youth activities, youth conferences and womens meetings even 11 yr old scouts. Living the gospel is my life and thankful for the many things I have learned in serving and loving others. My Heavenly Father loves me and I love him.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Being self-reliant is important to me and the church teaches us how to do it and why. I feel a real independence and love being self-reliant. We enjoy gardening, canning our own meat and living within our income. We as members of the church try and prepare for a rainy day, teach our children the importance of living that way helping to build up their own self respect. As our world is in such turmoil it is a awesome feeling to know I can change fear into strength by living these teachings. Show more Show less
