Hi I'm Barbara,

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in a lot of States. I have lived in Washington most of my adult life. I owned a Mini Golf.

About Me

I ran a Mini Golf for 30 years. I do many crafts. I quilt, crochet and some cross stitch work. My hobie is my flower garden. I grow flowers to bring to church. I am a Mother, Grandmother and a Great Grandmother. I enjoy my family. I was married fourty seven years to my first husband. We had three children. five grand children and four great grandchlildren and one one on the way. I remarried a wonderful man eight years ago. He was married fifty years and his wife died. He has four sons, sixteen gandchildren and thirteen greatchildren. Lots of fun. We enjoy going to the Temple once a week as workers. The Church keeps us grounded.

Why I am a Mormon

I was looking for something that I thought didn't exist. I went to a neighbors house and she had the Mormon Tabernacal Choir plalying "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and I love that hymn. We started talking about the Church and the more I heard the more I wanted to know. I felt in my heart that that was what I was looking for. I joined the Church and have enjoyed being a Mormom. Before joining the Church I had no trust in people. I was being lied to all of the time. It is so wonderful to be able to trust people and know that what they say they will do or at least call and let me know what happened. It gave me a new outlook on life. I love being a Laatter Day Saint.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others in any way I can. I am a hugger. I give hugs to the sisters in the church and to the sisters in the Temple. I am a Temple worker and love it very much and look forward to going every week. It is the best part of my day. I enjoy the Spirit of the Lord that keeps me doing what is right. I try to stay close to the Spirit by living what it tells me. I love the Lord with all of my heart and soul. I found what I was looking for.
