Hi I'm Loretta

I'm a Mormon. I am proud of my Mormon heritage.

About Me

I am the luckiest woman in the world because I am married to my best friend, I am a mother of six (4 daughters and 2 sons), and I am a grandmother to 12 (7 girls and 5 boys and subject to change in a month). My family and home are my hobbies. I like to cook, sew, quilt, paint, read, and play. Working shoulder to shoulder with my husband brings me such joy whether we are pouring concrete or working on wood projects. I love good music.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are Mormon as are my grandparents and great-grandparents. I am proud of my Mormon heritage. I have a testimony of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. I know He lives. I know that I am a daughter of a loving and merciful Heavenly Father. My family is precious to me. I want to be with them forever. Living God's commandments keeps me safe. Following Christ's example of loving and serving others helps me avoid selfish interests. Heavenly Father's eternal plan of happiness is definitely something worthwhile to pursue. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides direction for my live. My faith gives me hope and lifts me up.

How I live my faith

I awake every morning to a bright new day. I try to fill each day with positive experiences showing love and serving others. I love being on the Lord's errand whether it be teaching, leading, or organizing. My life's goal has been to be a positive influence for good so I always volunteer and serve wherever I can. Weekly church attendance helps remind me that I am a daughter of God and that He loves me. He has blessed me with talents so that I can serve others. Joy comes though service to others. Kindness begins with me; a smile or a handshake.

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

The earth and all things therein are so intricate and beautiful that they couldn't have happened by chance. Both heaven and earth were created with perfection, balance, and harmony. Life is a miracle whether it be a green leaf or a newborn baby. I know there is a God and that He lives. Show more Show less
