Hi I'm dawn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a writer,artist, actor and I love to travel, camp out, picnic and make sketches of where I've been. I love being a Mormon! I have survived several strokes, losing my parents and learning how to clean! Mom and Dad would be so pleased that I am at last getting organized! At my age, it's about time! Oddly enough this has left me more time to work on my children's stories.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon because of the joy! Before, life was like looking out of smudged window. When I was baptized, I came out of the waters, refreshed and alive most of all I could see clearly. My best memory is sitting in a restaurant with members and family. We were laughing so hard we had to hold our stomachs and dab at our eyes. The people at the next table said they had never seen a happier group. Just following Heavenly Father's plan has bought me so much happiness, peace, and joy.

How I live my faith

Well were planning a great neighborhood feast. Many folks are bring in dishes that were part of their family heritage. My spouse is making English potato fries but he is going to bake them because of his heart. I am going to make my mother's favorite, Kolaches (Bohemian-now Czech) and my father's favorite, chicken liver rice casserole. It is for all to come and enjoy! No one likes to come home and cook after a long day harvesting. Last week we went to a fundraiser for the Kirk fire department and to Lion's club, which is remodeling the building to fit in a handicap bathroom, add new sinks, and generally expand the space for community events like proms, family reunions and dinners! Right now, I am setting up a "roots class" so that everyone can trace their families. My grandparents homesteaded here and my great-grandparents homesteaded in Nebraska (after the Civil War). When I started tracing my own family history, others jumped in with questions about theirs as well. Now it has become a learning experience for us all.
