Hi I'm Betty

I was born in Texas. I'm a convert since 1970. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the mother of five children, my greatest accomplishment. I've worked all my life. I've been a telephone operator, office work, managed convenience stores and video stores. My hobbies are gardening and painting, reading, cooking and learning more about the Plan of Happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was 30 yrs. old and my husband all our children were baptized that same day in a little brick church. I grew up being a Baptist and I always wanted to follow what God wanted me to do. I investigated Catholicism and studied Middle Eastern Religions. I was always searching for the truth. My twins were really ill and I prayed they would get stronger. My mother-in-law was a mormon and she asked if I would be open to having the missionaries come and give my twins a blessing. After that blessing, the results were astounding. I had my prayers answered and I felt the spirit of truth and I had to join. That's what set that blessing apart from others given by other ministers. These Elder missionaries had something special. It's hard to explain but now that I've been a member of the Church for a number of years I understand that this Church has the proper authority from God or the Priesthood. I'm so happy to be a Mormon. I cannot deny what God has told me.

How I live my faith

I take care of people that are needing physical, mental help. I'm a caregiver to those in need. I'm old enough to be retired, but the Lord has blessed me to have good health and stay busy. I currently am a visiting teacher supervisor. After sisters in the congregation fellowship each other, they report the sisters needs to me. There's a lot of unity and love within the Church. We have a sisterhood that crosses all boundaries. It doesn't matter who you are or where you came from.
