Hi I'm Angela

I’m a Mom , Grandmother, an Air Force brat, an Army wife and now a full time civilian. Married for 32 years and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have loved and cared for children most of my life, sister, cousins, neighbors and my own. My children are all grown up, my granddaughters are in school, I run a small registered child care in my home and look forward to more grandchildren when my youngest two start their family. I enjoy exploring family history, sharing heritage recipes and collecting old photos. I have had family members in military services since the revolutionary war till the present generation. I’ve had family on the Mayflower as well as modern immigrants. My husband was my high school sweetheart and his history is very close to mine, born in different states, dads were both in the Air Force, courted over four different states, but I never left the United Stated. We just celebrated our thirty-second anniversary this month.

Why I am a Mormon

I was given a Book of Mormon, by a young man when I was 17 years old. We had been dating in high school and he wanted me to read all about his church because his children were going to be raised by this book. I had many questions before I started investigating and was surprised when the missionaries were answering them before I asked them. When I prayed to my Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, if these things were true, I was blessed with an overwhelming peace that was a clear answer to me. My mother had given me guidance about a true church that is found in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 14:33, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

How I live my faith

I believe in God, the eternal Father, and in his son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost, this is the first article of faith. I have accepted callings to teach the children, youth, and women in the church. Each step has taught me much and I have grown closer to my Heavenly Father. I’ve helped organize activities and participated in programs that have enriched my congregation and community. Right now I work with the young women of the church, during one of our last mid week activity we talked over the plan of salvation while learning to make sushi. Sunday's lesson was about the importance of integrity, even when society will tell you otherwise. I need to attend church; it is my foundation for the week and rededicates my efforts to hold fast to the rod and pray always.
