Hi I'm Ada

I grew up in South Carolina -- I love my Southern heritage as well as my Mormon pioneer roots.

About Me

Hello! I am the mother of eight children, grandmother of ten. Thanks to my hard-working husband, I have been a busy stay-at-home mom, ---lots of chauffeuring, PTA, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, etc. My passions are children, music, public education, and politics. I love talking with others about things that really matter. My favorite thing is to connect people that I think will enjoy knowing one another.

Why I am a Mormon

I have felt a powerful witness to my soul that ~ God, the father of my spirit, knows and loves me dearly. He is a glorified person who can wrap His arms around me. ~ The Book of Mormon is true; its characters are real people; many of them saw our day; its messages of warning are for our day. ~ I can be forgiven of my sins and I can forgive others through the power of Christ's Atonement. ~ Children are a divine trust and gift from God and we learn as much from them, as they from us. ~ Figuring out how to live together harmoniously and joyfully as husband & wife and as families is what heaven is all about. ~ In LDS temples, time and eternity touch. There is nothing more real than the promises we receive there.

How I live my faith

Serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a humbling streeeeetching experience! In 2013 my husband and I completed serving a three-year mission for the church. He was the spiritual leader of about 200 missionaries in the northwest corner of Washington State and was also the one designated to help people repent of their sins as they are preparing for baptism. There is no greater work than the eternal salvation of souls and assisting in the spiritual "growth spurt" of a young missionary serving full-time. These wonderful men and women bring the light of Hope to some pretty dark places!
