Hi I'm Virginia

I was raised in Washington state. Always loved the outdoors and doing physical activities. Mom to 6 grandma to 25. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live with constant pain and am unable to do the things I use to love. I have found new things that I love to do now. I do some gardening mostly flowers. I love to do genealogy. Not that I am successful much but I love doing it. I have met some relatives that I did not know I had. Lots of fun. I love to swim if my skin could handle it I would live in the water. I enjoy old movies espically English classics. I like things to be plain and simple. Hugs and kisses(on the check) are awesome. I enjoy games card, board where you interact with others. Everyone wins if you had fun is my moto. Reading the scriptures is a great time for me I love the stories and the insights I receive each time I read them. Its like eating a juicy orange one section at a time. I also enjoying reading biographies and history. Not much into fiction except movies. I love music like Andy Williams,Barbra Striestand, Sha na na. I love every day I am alive and am Greatful to the Lord for giving it to me. The Pacific Northwest is the best place to live!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is where I am the happiest and have the most peace. I know that it is God's kingdom here on the earth. I know that He loves me. I have read the Book of Mormon and know that it contains the word of God. I knew it while reading it as the Holy Ghost bore wittness to me while reading it. Nothing loud or grand like fireworks. A warm and inviting peacefull blanket of love and protection envelope me. I use to wonder if there was a God or if I was a pupet on strings and had no control of my life. I was scared and felt unloved most of the time. There was not alot of love in my world just pain emotional pain. I remember begging to know what to do and wishing I was dead mostly. Somehow the Lord got me through those years and gave me the chance to learn for myself. I did not hear or listen at first but than I finally did and I opened up my scriptures and started to read and got on my knees and prayed to know. I shed many a tear and learned to listen so I could know for myself. Now I do and my testimony grows stronger each time I read, pray,and listen. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints because it has the truth, I can find the answers to my questions, I have peace in my heart, the power of the priesthood is here, It is not confusing it is simple and beautiful, in the name of Jesus Christ amen

How I live my faith

I accept my callings and do them to the best of my ability. I know that if I do I will be guided and receive the help I need. I have worked with the small children, youth (teenagers), and adults. I have organized group activities and tournaments. Taught people to play sports fairly and to do their best and watched them improve. I have organized campouts and hikes and help youth to organzie them and enjoyed them. Taught people how to cook, can/preserve, and sew. I have done water rescues, clean campgrounds, work with the Boy Scouts of America. I have cried and laughed, sang, and played alongside youth and adults while we did these things. I have found relatives I never knew and if it had not been for my different callings I would not have grown so much and learned so much. I would have kept sinking into the floor till I was no more. I am here I do my best everyday and love to help others to keep on going and do what I can so we can all be successful at being us.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

gardening I plant a seed water it and watch it grow to a beautiful flower. Insects how they work and are built and what they do. Noway any man would have or could have thought it all up. The sunrise and sunset. There are times when my soul feels well fed watching them. The ocean and Mt's. When a child puts there arms around my neck or place their little hand in mine. Smiles, a loving God knew we would all need smiles throughtout our lives. The air we breath the ability to see and smell and taste. Our bodies, what miraculose things they are again no man could come up with this stuff. The Holy Ghost bares witness to us all that these things are from a loving God. The Rain and the smell that comes with it.They all testify to me that there is a loving God. Show more Show less
