Hi I'm Lorraine

I am a Business Manger, a Mom, I love Japanese animation and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a blended family of step kids and foster children, We moved to a mountain homestead when I was 16 and then I went off to college. I married at 21 and have one daughter. I divorced in 2000, returned to work full time and raised my daughter and later two god children. I am newly experiencing empty nest syndrome and my recovery looks hopeful. I have always had an interest in family history and have worked with my mother and grandmother on the family records and phots kept by my great grandfather. I believe it is one of the inherited traits I was blessed with. I also love japanese animation...not genetic but still strong at my age.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members when I was born, becoming less active as I grew until we all became non-active by the time I hit my teens. I married a non-active member and although we shared a LDS "ethnicity" we were not church goers. I loved the gospel as a child and often turned to it as I experienced lifes challenges. With the beginning of my divorce, I made the decision to return to the Church and I have not regretted it one moment since. I was baptised as an adult and confirmed a member of the church. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, I love the warmth and community I have with my fellow Church members. I love being able to serve others and have their friendship when I am in need. Although there is always a bit of nervousness in teaching others, I have learned that the lessons I have been asked to teach are often the ones I need most in my life at that time. I know this church is true and that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored on the earth today for our benefit and I am so very grateful to have that gospel in my life each day. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I started out teaching in our children's sunday school when I returned to Church, I was given the opportunity to teach a class with a small autistic boy as one of the students. Over the next few years I received a miraculous gift of understanding and communicating with this amazing child. When my duties there were fullfilled I was called to work with the women of the Relief Society ( our women's auxiliary) and in my time learned to love them just as strongly as I loved their children. Currently I am back in the children's sunday school with a new group of children and am learning all over again.
