Hi I'm Pam

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since my retirement, I really enjoy cooking, baking bread, canning and sharing these things with others. Before retirement, I worked in office and personnel related positions; working since I was 16 years of age. After 25 years, I finally earned a BA Degree in Liberal Arts. I enjoy using computers and all the new technology available to us today. And I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

My membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the most important part of my life. Since my husband and I converted to this church in 1997, I have never looked back and never had any doubts. Our conversion story is a long story; and one that details many divine events involving the most loving people I've ever known. Since then, we have moved around to different places in the US and also served a mission in the West Indies. This has given us a very broad view of the church from many different perspectives. I was a Christian prior to joining this church and I admit, being a Christian in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is so much better. There is just simply more to learn, more to do and more to be as a child of God and a member of this church. This church makes me want to be a better person every day. It just has more to offer than any other organization I've ever been exposed to. I believe Jesus Christ is my personal Savior and Redeemer. I know that Joseph Smith restored our true church on earth according to the ancient church. We have a living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson. The Book of Mormon is true. And I leave this testimony in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day and not just on Sundays. We have a program called Visiting Teaching where I get to visit and help other ladies every month and really get to know them. I also enjoy teaching and assisting in organizing church events. Everyone is always so friendly and helpful it makes me want to do the same for them. I have always enjoyed my callings (assignments) knowing that I am needed to help make this organization work. Because our members actually administer and operate our Wards and Branches (without pay) I know that everything we do at church is divinely coordinated and seems to work out well. How often is that true in other parts of our lives? This church offers me a stability that just isn't available anywhere else. The church is the same wherever I go all over the world. I want the gospel in my life so I'll do whatever it takes to continue as a good member. It makes me a better person.
