Hi I'm Nancy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one of four children born to my parents. A sister is still living. My husband and I have nine children, three boys and 6 girls. We also are blessed with 30 grandchildren. I have been blessed to be a "stay at home" Mom while my husband worked hard to support our family. At this time in his life he suffers from dementia and our loving children are very supportive of him and of me. I have been singing all my life and still enjoy singing with a large group besides soloing in the community and church. I'm a happy person and usually see the bright side of every situation. It's what helps me with my daily life as a 24/7 caretaker. I attended Pasadena City College for most of a year. Broke my back in March and went back to Idaho. After working at a bank, I enrolled at BYU, majoring in speech therapy. Met my husband the first week I was there, and all thoughts of graduation left me. We were married in the Idaho Falls Temple in 1960 and it's been a great 50 plus years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to good Mormon parents and have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I can't imagine living any other way. As a small child I was able to participate in activities in the Church: giving talks in Sunday School, acting in a play, performing in programs. It's wonderful to be in a Church where even children can be part of the action. I've always known that I am a Child of God, and that He knows and loves me. I'm so comforted by that knowledge and when times get hard I hang onto that knowledge.

How I live my faith

I teach a lesson once each month to the women of our ward. I'm sure I learn more by studying than the women learn, but they are always good to add comments to the lessons. I've taught the adult classes on Sundays. And have taught the young children, from ages 18 months to 11 years at different times. I have also played the piano for the children's meetings. That was scary because I'm sort of a one-handed player, but it was a growing experience and I learned to use both hands.
