Hi I'm Dianne

I live in the Seattle area, but I grew up in Chicago. I am a wife, mother, and a new grandmother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Washington, but I grew up in Illinois, went to college in Utah, where I met my husband, and lived in Utah for a while. I work for a bank doing technical computer support from home. This allows me to be able to spend time with my family. Whether camping, hiking, going to the zoo, or movie nights - family time is what is important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, but it wasn't until high school, when my brother and I were the only members there, that I truly gained the knowledge and faith that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover, and then tested the promise of the prophet Mormon. I prayed and asked Heavenly Father to let me know if this was the true church, and that the Book of Mormon was true. I received an answer to my prayers, and I will never forget the feelings I felt that day, the confirmation in my heart. It has truly been a blessing in my life to know and feel the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ and of my Heavenly Father. I am also so thankful for the knowledge I have that families can be together forever, that there is life after death. I know that everyone can gain this knowledge if they just pray to our Father in Heaven and ask.

How I live my faith

I currently am an early morning seminary teacher. This means that each school day at 6:30 am, I have 10 to 12 high school students come to my home and learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a major commitment for teenagers and I know their lives are blessed by coming to seminary each day. I have had many different callings in the church including working with the women and also the children. In our family, we read our scriptures together and have family prayer each day. This time together has strengthened our family, especially our teenage children and helped them develop habits that will last their lifetime.
