Hi I'm Belinda

I'm a book-lover, a mother, a teacher, and a student. I'm a wife, a companion, and a friend. AND I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a reader! I love to curl up with a good book. Mostly, I enjoy the fantasy/sci-fi genre, but historical fiction is fun, too. I like to travel and see new places, but I don't get to do that very much--no money. I guess that's why I enjoy reading a good book; I can go places, meet new people, experiences new things, and never leave home! I'm in two dfferent book clubs; one with some women at work and one with some women in my church. And even with these two clubs, I still run out of novels to read and have to fill in the gaps with other selections. My life seems to be lived in sections. Section one was my childhood. I am the youngest of six children, and I have been a member of the church all of my life. Section two was my first marriage and raising my first family. Section three was a short period between marriages where most of my spiritual growth happened. Section four is where I am now, part of the "sandwich generation" who are sandwiched between their children and their aging parents, sometimes over-burdened with responsibility and worry, occaisionally blessed with a peaceful period of time, and never a dull moment. And I'm hoping sections five and six will be slower paced and filled with joy and grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's who I am. Just as I am a woman, a mother, a wife; I am a Mormon. I was raised in the church, but I choose to be in it now. I am part of the church, it is part of me, and we are one.

How I live my faith

I have had many jobs in the church, but currently I am a visiting teacher to three sisters (women members) in my ward (church), and I teach a gospel lesson one Sunday a month in the women's class. Each assignment I've had in the church has been accompanied by a period of growth and blessings by serving with a willing heart and spirit.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is fantastic! Everything about the Curuch makes sense and is designed to help us reach our full potential, both here on this earth, and in the life to come. It gives us hope to know what God's plan is for us, so that when life deals us a blow, either financial, physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual, we are able to see the bigger picture and feel secure in the knowledge that God has a plan for us, and he is in control. I know that God loves me; he knows my name, and is concerned for my welfare and well-being. I love Him, too. Show more Show less
