Hi I'm Babette

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mormon, I am a woman. I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a Christian. I am a follower of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Wisconsin. She attended church faithfully with my older siblings. It must have been difficult for her but she never wavered in her faith. I am grateful for her example. I am grateful for the things she has taught me such as faith, perseverance, hope and service. My husband and I have 5 wonderful beautiful children (one who happens to have Down Syndrome). This was hard for me to accept. I knew the Lord loved me but I could not understand why my perfect family was no longer going to be perfect. ( Little did I know it then but I now believe he REALLY must love me to have blessed me with such a wonderful child) Our youngest has taught me so much about love and service that I love his little extra chromosome. Life can be hard and challenging and it doesn't always go like I planned but God knows all things and he is willing to help me grow and meet any challenges.

How I live my faith

I hope my life is a reflection of my belief in Christ and His life. I look for opportunities to serve God's children. I have prayed to God and asked Him who he would have me serve that day. Someone who might need a kind word, a smile or a listening ear. I strive every day to be better than the last. It is what the Lord would want from me.
