Hi I'm Dawn

I was born and raised in Enumclaw, Washington. I am a mother and grandmother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I live in a rural area and I enjoy animals. This year, I had a small garden and I guess you could say that gardening is sort of a hobby of mine. I would much rather be outside doing things than spending time indoors. I have many interests and I love to learn new things.

Why I am a Mormon

My family wasn't what you would call religious but when I was growing up, I always had a curiosity about religious things. I didn't learn much about the basic stories in the Bible but I did go to church when my neighbor would pick me up and take me. My mom died when I was 7 and after that, I didn't attend anymore. When I was in jr. high school, I had a small group of friends and when we were studying the pioneer trek in 8th grade history class, they started to speak up and correct the teacher and tell the "real" story. It was then I found out that they were Mormons. I trusted them and so i trusted what they had to say about their church too. When I took the missionary discussions in high school, the missionaries answered many of my questions that I had accumulated over the years. I knew that they spoke the truth and I knew that I wanted that for myself too. I am a Mormon because I believe in Christ. I believe we have a Heavenly Father who has a plan for us. I believe that the true church has been restored to earth in these latter days. I believe that it is this church and that Christ is at the head of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can each day. Sometimes I do much better than other times but I try to do my best. I live my faith by sharing what I know through thought and action. I try to live a Christ like life but I know that I fall short of it and need to do better. I live my faith by having good friends and family to be around. It is their example that keeps me going at times.
