Hi I'm Barbara

I'm a Mormon. I love my family which consists of 7 children, 29 grandchildren, and 15 great grandchildren.

About Me

I was "Miss Barbara" on Romper Room, a nationally televised show for children. I founded a pre-school for children. I have been a real estate agent, and most importantly a wife and mother.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice which is a living force in my life. It brings me joy and helps me focus on being His disciple as I serve my family and others. His love encourages me to respect and love as He did. I feel blessed to know that revelation cotinues through a living prophet today. Through that revelation I more fully understand the truths of the Bible and the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Chirst. The Book of Mormon is another testament of the Savior and its beauty compliments what I study in the Bible. I am grateful that through revelation and the priesthood, I can enjoy the benefits of ordinances that bind me closer to Jesus Christ. As I covenant with Him, I have the promise of being with my family through all Eternity. Being a Mormon gives me the confirmation that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have served as a teacher, leader, and friend in my Church community. I have been president of our church's youth program, president of our teenage girls group, and area president of our woman's organization. That organization is the longest continuing womens' organization in the world. As a Mormon, I am also encouraged to serve the communities in which I live. I have been a Boy Scout merit badge counselor, a PTA president, a Little League sponsor, and president of an auxiliary that provides medical care for the uninsured and homeless. I have had the privilege of speaking to large groups on subjects of self-esteem, home management, and profiles of early Mormon women. Hopefully, I live my faith by kindly acts of regular visits to home bound people, anonomously seeking after those who need financial aid, and aiding children in distress. Actively living my faith gives me a positive attitude in all I do.
