Hi I'm Gayle
I like to sew, crochet, knit, build and weld. I am a forever learner, I love my family as the Lord loves me, completely. They are a precious gift, as well as my church family. Yes, I am glad I am a Mormon!
Why I am a Mormon
I feel at home. I was not raised in a church, but knew there was something out there that was guiding me and giving me a conscience. I joined another church, by getting baptized with a sprinkle on my forehead. It just did not feel right! I was baptized correctly by immersion, and I knew that this is a true church that believes in Jesus Christ and not a cult.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer is a communication between Heavenly Father and you. You can tell him anything, say anything, ask for help, seek guidance and he will answer you. It may not be the answer that you want, but you have to seek acceptance of the answer. Prayers help me, because I know I am not alone in this world, you can have no family here on earth, but you have Heavenly Father. He is always there!!
What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?
My grandson lost his leg in a lawnmower accident, I did not think I would make it through this ordeal plus help my daughter. It was one of the hardest things I ever faced. If it was not for our bishop who gave me a blessing to help me understand why something like this would happen to a 3 year old, I would have never made it. My grandson understood that the Lord was by him, because the mower stopped working so it would not do anymore damage to him. When he was in the emergency room, his grandfather gave him blessing and he understood. Blessings are here on the earth, and I counts them everyday. You must seek the Lord for his comfort in these trying times. Because if you do not have a test--you would not have a testimony.
How I live my faith
I love helping others, I have helped the ward plan ward parties. Visiting teaching is wonderful, we are there for other members and nonmembers, if they need someone to help them we are there for them. It is so wonderful to not only help the youth but to teach them your experiences of life. Everyone becomes like family, and when there is sorrow or happiness we feel it also.
