Hi I'm Paula

I am a vision manager at Sam's club ,I have 4 grown children, 2 grandchildren,I have been married for 28 years.I am a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE BEING A GRANDMOTHER, MOTHER OF 4, AND BEING HAPPILY MARRIED TO THE SAME MAN FOR 28 YEARS. I HAVE THE CUTEST DOG. I ENJOY SCRAPBOOKING, CAMPING,SEWING, HOCKEY,AND NASCAR (A GOOD CRASH IS EXCITING). I LOVE MY JOB, I HELP PEOPLE SEE AND I MAKE THEM LOOK GOOD WITH THERE GLASSES AND CONTACT LENS. I ENJOY TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE, I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT I NEED TO MOTHER EVERYONE.

Why I am a Mormon

I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER ALL MY LIFE. BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL I MET MY HUSBAND THAT I TRULY UNDERSTOOD WHAT I WANTED AND HOW I WANTED TO GET IT.MY HUSBAND IS AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE CHURCH AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM AND WHAT HE BELIEVED AND I WANTED TO SHARE THOSE SAME HOPES ,DREAMS, AND DESIRES. HIS LOVE AND PATIENCE BROUGHT ME TO THE FULL UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT BEING A MORMON IS. I WANTED THE PEACE OF MIND, THE LOVE OF FAMILY, THE KNOWLEDGE THAT I AM A SPECIAL DAUGHTER OF GOD,THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE FOR MYSELF. TO KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, BEING A MORMON EMPOWERS ME TO BELIEVE I CAN DO ANYTHING I SET MY MIND TO. THE LOVE THE LORD GIVES ME , AND BEING A MORMON MAKES ME FEEL UNSTOPPABLE.

How I live my faith

I HAVE ALWAYS TAUGHT THE YOUNGER CHILDREN IN MY CHURCH, AGES 18 MONTHS TO 13 YRS OLD. I LOVE THE CHILDREN THE BEST, I LOVE THE JOY AND INNOCENCE OF THE CHILDREN. CURRENTLY MY HUSBAND AND I TEACH THE 5 YR OLDS. ( WE ALWAYS LAUGH) THESE CHILDREN ALWAYS TEACH ME, SOMETIMES MORE THAN I TRY TO TEACH THEM. I TRY TO LIVE MY FAITH DAILY BY MY ACTIONS, I AM HONEST, TRUST WORTHY,LOYAL, FRIENDLY. I LOVE BEING ALIVE. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT I AM WATCHED AND THAT I HAVE A GLOW ABOUT ME. THE GLOW OF HAPPINESS!!!! I FEEL THAT WITHOUT MY FAITH I WOULD BE A SAD AND LONELY PERSON. I AM GRATEFUL THAT I HAVE THE LORD IN MY LIFE, I WOULD LOST WITHOUT IT........

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Paula

What is faith?

Paula
MY PARENTS TAUGHT ME WHAT IT IS TO HAVE TRUE FAITH, FAITH IS SOMETHING THAT WE CANNOT SEE, TASTE, OR TOUCH. BUT WE HAVE TO TRUST THAT IT IS THERE.I HAVE HAD TO PUT IT TO THE TEST MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE. I HAVE TRUSTED, RELIED ON THIS FAITH MY TIMES TO GET ME THROUGH MANY TOUGH TIMES. I TRUST IT AND BELIEVE IT.... Show more Show less
