Hi I'm Evelyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother, wife, grandmother and great grandmother! I was raised by a single mother and had two brothers and two sisters. My mother joined the church at the age of 86! We are the only members in my family. She lived to be 102! I graduated from high school and later became a secretary for the county department of schools. After working there I met my husband who was a Mormon. We have now been married for 60 years! We have two beautiful children and later adopted our third child. We now have 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren! My husband is a lawyer and I have been his secretary and paralegal for the past 50 years! We make a great team! And I love to make cookies for the family!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was young, I would occasionally go to a Christian church because it was close to our home, but was never baptized. My Mother never attended church on Sundays because she was always working. When I met my husband, I eventually took the missionary lessons and joined the church. I wanted to make sure that our children were brought up in the correct church and after taking the missionary lessons, I knew this was the case. It was the right thing to do! When the missionaries came to our door, I was amazed that they were twin brothers. They were good missionaries! My husband took the missionary lessons as well and became active again. The church has meant so much to me and my husband and family and has met all my fondest expectations. I also love the Temple and the blessings that have come to our family! We also had the opportunity to serve in various church callings in the inner city of Denver for 10 years.

How I live my faith

I love to read and study the scriptures. I love to attend the Temple every week. I love to go to church and meet with other members of the church. I love the Book of Mormon. What an amazing book! I am so thankful that there is a Prophet of God on the earth today. I love General Conference and love to hear the Prophet and the Apostles share their testimonies. I love missionary work and try to be the best example in all that I do and say. I am compassionate about others beliefs. I always extend an invitation to others to learn more about the church and to read the Book of Mormon and meet with the missionaries! The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy every day! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity in my life to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints!
