Why I am a Mormon

my ancestors were mormons. my mother raised me in the church as much as possible. my father was an alcoloholic, & a little abusive. i dropped out of school, & was going to show him. when i was about 19 yrs old, i needed a job, & found a job in a grocery store. i worked 60 hrs a week, & that taught me that it wasn't all about me. i got married & started to have kids. worked real hard. attended my church which i did not know much about, until i invested some effort, & gained a testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ. that brought peace into my life, & this including hard work with the public taught me some valuable lessons.

How I live my faith

i started to learn that helping others brought a great deal of satisfaction. i found out that others have problems also. helping others was a win win activity for me. i have partisipated in leadership with (adults & the youth) for 52 years. i have partisipated as a worker bee with the scouts, pre teens, & youg adults.
