Hi I'm Barbara.

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in a military family. My husband and I have lived in Colorado for 15 years. We love it here!

About Me

I am a mother and grandmother to a large family. None of our children live in Colorado, so we travel to 3 states to see our grandchildren as often as we can. I’m an artist and a quilt designer and have designed quilts and crafts for numerous magazines and books for 30 years. I love creating beautiful things! My husband and I enjoy doing genealogy and spend many hours each week researching online. It’s fun to have someone to tell about my treasured discoveries who understands my joy.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both converts to the church. I was fortunate to be raised in the LDS church. Every place we moved, the church was the same and we had immediate friends. I’ve known my whole life that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I feel it deep inside me. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and want to always be obedient to His commandments. I love reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon, which strengthens me. I feel that when I read the scriptures that I become closer to the Lord. I love being able to pray to my Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ, and receive answers, guidance, and comfort.

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures and pray daily by myself and also with my husband. We did this with our children as they grew up and also had Family Home Evening on Monday night. I’ve always loved serving in the church and have taught the young children, the teenagers, and the women in Relief Society. Right now I am serving with my husband in the Family History Center for our stake. We assist both members and many non-members in Family History Research. I also serve weekly in the temple. It’s my favorite, peaceful place to be and renews me each week!
