Hi I'm Debbie Bullock

I love my family. I always wanted to get married and stay home and raise my children. I'm living my dream. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to go camping, and cook. I love to collect cookbooks. I love doing a lot of different crafts. I love to crochet, cross stitch, decorative paint. I also enjoy gardening and having beautiful flowers. I also love being in the beauty of mountains, the trees, fresh air, and the wildflowers and wildlife. I find great happiness in doing my family history, including scrapbooking pictures. I have loved every moment of raising my children, every different age and stage of their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert. I was baptized when I was 22. I met the perfect man for me, Our marriage is sealed in the Temple. I wanted to have children, and stay home and raise them. The children didn't come. We have adopted 3 children. They are sealed to us. I love them as if they were born to me. Being sealed in the Temple means you will be together forever. All my life I felt was a puzzle. I searched with faith, for the pieces that were missing from the puzzle. Some of the pieces never seemed to fit. When I met my missionaries, they filled in the pieces of the puzzle that were so hard for me to find. Finally, my puzzle was complete, after a long time searching. I read the Book of Mormon, and prayed over it and all I had been taught, and received an answer from my Father in Heaven that it all was true. I had finally found my place, where I belonged.

How I live my faith

I have done many things living my faith. I have taught women and children at church. I have made dinners for the sick, and helped comfort those in need in any way I am able. I listen. That is most important. I listen to people when they need someone to share their burdens, and I try to show kindness. I try to pitch in and help when I see a need if I can, before I am asked. Over the years, my health has been failing. I am not able to do much any more, not like in my youth. I am trying to see what I can do, and slowly I am finding ways to live with my physical limits, and still expand on my abilities I still have. I love this church, more and more every day. Being a Mormon has blessed my life and I am grateful for being a Mormon.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Debbie Bullock
The welfare services of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is very different than Government Welfare. We believe in being self reliant. Sometimes that isn't possible, so the welfare system helps with that. If help is needed, it is given. It can vary, depending on your situation and needs. Food, clothing, job training, seeking employment, all is there to help out. If you are able to help with work in some form, you are asked to pitch in according to your ability. When someone in need is asked to help out, they can receive blessings, like feeling good about themselves. Also it helps others too. I believe most of the work is done by volunteers, in the welfare program. Show more Show less
