Hi I'm Dianne

I'm a Mormon. My husband and I are now retired. We live in a state located in the southwestern United States -- no snow!

About Me

We have a his/hers blended family including 9 children, 29 grandchildren, and 2 greats. I gave birth to one child, the other 8 are either adopted or I married their father. Digital photography and computer scrap booking are some of my hobbies. I enjoy working on my genealogy and family history and helping others with theirs. Interior decoration and sewing projects are enjoyable pass-times. I like to walk, ride my bicycle and/or participate in water aerobics in the mornings.

Why I am a Mormon

Through reading the scriptures (Bible, Book of Mormon) and trying to live a Christ-like life, I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ was sent to earth to atone for our sins and make it possible through our repentance to return to our Heavenly Father some day. One of the reasons I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is that we are taught that families can be together forever. What a wonderful blessing! I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I am thankful that a prophet of God is on earth today and teaches us correct principles to live by.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life, I have had many church callings (assignments) . At the present I am the secretary of our ward's (congregation) woman's group. Since I am project oriented, this is a great calling for me. In the past I have worked with the youth, and the children under 12. I have to say I really enjoy working with groups of children. I have been active in community activities such as Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts and have been actively involved at my children's schools. We live in a retirement community and have met lots of great people. We live the standards of our religion and try to set a good example of what a Mormon believes.
