Hi I'm Dawn

Hi...I'm a wife and a mom. I love camping, movies, baseball, football, theme parks, and hanging out with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I already put all my hobbies in my intro, but I guess I can add details. On valentines day 2012, i'll have been married to my best friend for 25 years. We have 2 girls ages 23 and 19, and a boy age 12. My husband has a large family, and we hang out all the time. I have just one brother, and I love him more than he knows. My parents were recently divorced after 40+ years of marriage, so that's been hard on my family, but my mom is now serving a senior mission in Oklahoma. I miss her a lot, but she's serving the Lord, and that is where it's at! My dad doesn't come around too much. I worry about him and I miss him a lot, but I love him regardless of the choices that he makes. Church is a huge part of our lives, and I couldn't imagine my life without it. We spent more than 20 years away from church, and now that we're back, we're so much happier, and our family is definately a lot closer.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I became Mormon....Well during the missionary discussions, they ask us to read and pray, and the Holy Ghost will tell us that what we're learning is true. When I did this with an open heart, and mind, i received an undescribable feeling that I KNOW was the Holy Ghost telling me just that. Learning about Joseph Smith, and all that he went through to restore the true Gospel of Jesus Christ to this earth strenghthened my testimoy even more, and my testimony always grows in so many different ways to this day. I live my life so that I can be worthy to serve in the Temple. I have an eternal family because of the Temple, and I wish that blessing on everyone!

How I live my faith

Of course the basics (prayer, scripture study, obeying the commandments, etc...). I always try to follow our Saviors example. Community service, forgiving and trying not to be so judgemental of others are a few things I always work on. Just being a nice person. We have no paid clergy, so the members are asked to take on responsibilities to help keep church organized. My "calling" is very important to me. I can't imagine ever turning down a calling. I am currently serving as Primary President in my ward. We have a great team, and together, we keep the Primary Program running smoothly (well...as smoothly as you can with 3-11 year olds...lol). Primary is the best! That is where the children start to learn about the gospel, and we watch them, as well as their testimonies grow. That is priceless to me.
