Hi I'm Diana

I enjoy the outdoors. Hiking in the National Forest and walking the beach at low tide are my favorite pastimes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up as the only girl in a family of 6 kids, so I was surrounded by brothers and all their activities. As a family, we enjoyed camping, hiking, fishing and water sports. From a young age, I devoured books and continue to read everything including mysteries, historical fiction, and biographies. While my husband and I raised our 3 children, we enjoy traveling to tropical places; however, our most memorable vacation was traveling to Israel to visit the Holy Lands. I now have 6 grandchildren that live in our area and I love spending time with them. The older ones love to read and so we pass books back and forth! We also spend time camping and riding motorcycles in the National Forest. Having grandchildren is great because you can relive your childhood experiences through them like roasting marshmallows over the fire . My husband and I have owned and operated a home based business since 1984. This venture allowed us the flexibility of raising our family while working and it taught our children the value of work. They are all hard workers that understand what it takes to stay afloat during this economy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was 3 years old when the missionaries knocked on my mother's door. Dad had already warned her about purchasing merchandise from door to door salesmen and he is quoted as saying, "Nothing good will every come to our door". Of course, that was before the missionaries showed up! She invited them to return that evening when my dad would be home from work and he was not very happy. After telling the missionaries that he would read the Book of Mormon to prove that it was a false book, he started reading and never looked back. They were baptized soon after and raised all 6 kids in the church from that point on. My personal conversion was a process that involved visiting other churches during my teenage years and reading the Book of Mormon for myself. The Lord was kind and patient with me as I studied, pondered, and prayed. I am a Mormon because I know for myself that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth and I am forever grateful that it happened before I came to earth so I could enjoy a life filled with that knowledge.

How I live my faith

I currently serve in the church by working with children ages 18 months to 12 years. We teach them the Gospel and they learn through songs, activities and lessons. I also visit several women each month to make sure their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs are met. We develop bonds of friendship, as we share our feelings and life experiences. On a daily basis, I strive to be an example of all I believe, as being true to my beliefs is a core purpose in life. I enjoy spending time with people of other beliefs and I have great neighbors that enrich my life because of their life choices.
