Hi I'm Diane

I am a wife, mother of 2 children, 2 grand children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Northern California. I Lived in the same house from the time I was 5 until I left home to be on my own. I am the 4th of 5 siblings, 3 boys and 2 girls. I grew up at a time when we could play hide and seek out side after dark and run like the wind all summer long. I have been a member of the LDS Church since birth. I have two beautiful children, and two grandchildren. The true joy in my life comes when spending time with my children, their spouses and my grandchildren. In my opinion there is nothing as important as family.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church grounds me. I find peach in its teachings. In this world that has so many distractions and so much ugliness and pain, it gives me comfort. It gives me a reason to work at being a good person, mother and wife. It gives me hope for a family that will be with me for eternity. It gives me an opportunity to serve and stretch myself. It allows me to improve myself by preparing a lesson to teach the youth or make a dinner for a member of the congregation. This service allows me to understand our Savior’s words when he said in Matthew 25:40, “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of my religion. I try to be kind and compassionate. I try to follow the example of my Savior and the leaders of the Church. I try to love my family and serve them with all my heart. I try to attend the temple and worship therein. I try to treat people the way I want to be treated. I try to improve myself by learning more about my Heavenly Father and Jesus. I try to read the scriptures and use the things I read to improve my life. I try to believe, always believe.
