Hi I'm Joy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren. They are my greatest joy in life. I am also a student taking business classes. My husband and I teach workshops about wind and solar power. It makes me feel good to help people learn to become more independent.

Why I am a Mormon

The most important thing that I have learned by being a member of the church is that I can have my family with me forever. I know that Heavenly Father has set up a plan that will allow us to be a family for all of eternity. I miss my children when they are gone for only a short time. I miss my husband when he travels. I miss my parents who have both died. I find comfort in knowing that we will all be together again. This brings me great peace in my life. It also brings me peace to know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and who truly cares about me. He cares about me enough to let me struggle and learn for myself. But I know that He is always there to answer me if I will just take the time to go to Him in prayer and then take the time to listen for His answer. I am so thankful for the teachings of the gospel that give me peace.

How I live my faith

I work with the boys and leaders in the cub scout program. I enjoy watching the boys learn and grow. They are so excited when they have earned a badge or learned a new skill. I sing in the church choir. I love to sing and I especially love to bear my testimony of Christ through the songs that we sing in church. Singing in the choir helps me to feel an even greater love of our Savior. I also visit monthly with ladies that I go to church with. During these visits I teach them a lesson, check on their needs and most of all become their friend. When one of them is sick I take in a meal or may help take care of their children.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, Christ is at the very center of our church. The name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We study about Him in our scripture reading and in our lessons at church. Jesus Christ is our Lord, Our Redeemer and our Savior. We strive to live our lives as Christ would have us live. Show more Show less
