Hi I'm Beth a grandmother.

I'm a Mormon. I converted thirty-four years ago and I've learned that I was seeking for happiness in all the wrong places

About Me

My beginning was with a family that was separated by my mother's illness and death. My two brothers and I were placed in an orphanage for over four years, and we lost the feel of family. I've spent most of my life searching for the missing pieces that family gives. I've lived in many places within the USA and visited many other churches to find a church that I could feel the love of my Heavenly Father and his Son. When I was investigating the LDS faith I had many times I wanted to be re assured before I accepted that this church really had the concepts that make everyone feel comfortable and accepted as members of a family. I love to do work in sewing and crocheting to help others, we work together as sisters to be able to help more people in the hopes that they will be blessed and brought to a knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Hs love for them through our efforts to bring aid and comfort to them.

Why I am a Mormon

When we moved to Utah, I began investigating the Church Visitors Center in Salt Lake City and was not really thinking about leaving my church, After about two years my husband at that point became ill and after a time was diagnosed with cancer that took his life. I found myself alone in Utah. I decided first to find a job and that lead to friendships that helped me to make more contacts with church members that were instrumental in my accepting the teachings of the Gospel. I met my current spouse through these friends and he helped since we started going to church and soon I was ready to be baptized and I've learned so much more about the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I feel like I've found the home I searched for most of my younger life.

How I live my faith

I've been trying be helpful to others in many capacities, as a visiting teacher I learned much about the teachings and I learned to love the sisters that were assigned to my companion and myself. I've served in the organization for the sisters to learn more of the Gospel to help in all areas of our lives, to young mothers, as well as older sisters feel that they are needed and still useful by relating experiences that can be helpful to young women to learn the things helpful in their families.
