Hi I'm Vicki

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother, and grandmother .. and have been a member of the Church my entire life. I met my sweetheart shortly after I graduated from high school, we married two months later, and the first of our seven children came along nine months after that. Life was a hustle-bustle whirlwind of kids, activities, and busy-ness in the church. Much quicker than expected, they began to grow up and leave the home. They have presented us with fifteen beautiful grandchildren. We are now empty nesters with a few health problems that remind us we are getting older now. Having the gospel in my life has made me the person I am today. I have always known deep in my heart and soul that it is true, that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and that I have a loving Father in Heaven who is deeply caring and aware of me. I am grateful for the principle of repentance, which is there for me if I trip and fall. Most of all, I am grateful for the atonement. It is hard for me to grasp the enormity of pain and suffering that Christ went through for souls such as I, but I am working and studying and praying to know Him better, and to become the daughter of God I should be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents married in the Temple, enabling me to be born in the covenant. I remain a Mormon because it is the happiest way to live, allowing me to serve the Lord, and those around me.

How I live my faith

Because our first three children were boys, I gravitated toward Little League, Boy Scouts, and helping my husband to be able to work in those areas. I helped with posters, signs, invitations and meetings, and was a Den Leader myself. Then I worked in the children's organization as teacher, music leader, secretary, counselor, and president. It's the highest form of serving when associating with, and teaching the little ones. It gives them the knowledge and protection they need to survive against some of the evils of the world. As they grew older, I served in other areas. Sometimes with the teenagers and sometimes in the women's organization. Also served in the community as president of the Eagle Forum. Life has been good, thus far.
