Hi I'm Roma Kay Brown Cornelsen

I'm a Mormon fifth generation. I had ancestors that crossed the plains in 1847 with Brigham Young. I am thankful for my heritage.

About Me

I have been a member all my life,so I have had the opportunity to serve in all the organizations of the church. After high school, I went to beauty school. I worked at that while my husband finished at BYU. We had 5 children. I have worked at an elementary school for 26 years as a para educator. I have always enjoyed working with children. I enjoy all kinds of crafts, sewing, reading, counted cross stitch, and crocheting.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but like everyone else in this world I had to pray and ask for myself if the church was true. I have done this. I went through Primary, Sunday School, and Seminary. I had wonderful teachers who bore testimony to me. But I still had to ask for myself. I didn't have any great manifestation but I did receive a burning in my very soul of the divinity of Christ and what he did for me. I studied Church History and found many ancestors that lived among the saints in Illinois and Missouri. I am so grateful to them for grasping this new religion and being faithful to it and Joseph Smith. They followed Brigham Young to the valley. For 5 generations my family has embraced the principles of the gospel. I intend to carry on that tradition.

How I live my faith

I have been fortunate to to able to serve in all the organizations of the church: the Sunday School, Youth, and Women's and singing in choirs. I love to sing praises to our Lord whenever I get the chance. I also sing in Community Choirs at Christmas time and any other time that arrises. I have helped people learn about their ancestors throught Genealogy. I especially love working with the women and young women. I was the song leader for the very young for 4 years. I cried when I was released.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Families are the most important thing to Latter day saints. We want to have families and want the best for our children. We teach them by lessons at Family Home Evenings and examples of our other family members. Show more Show less
