Hi I'm Joyce

I live in the mountains in a very rural area. I love the wildlife that abounds here and the beauty of God's earth. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom, a daughter, and a wife. I've had 2 years of college education in Child Development. I enjoyed playing softball all through school and other sports as well. I am art oriented. I create with pencil and pastels, and my computer generated art is copy righted. I make lampshades, soap, tinctures, healing salves, lip balm, herbal teas, and Native American talking sticks. I am always open to learning more. I'm an amateur HAM radio operator. I became one so I would have some way to communicate during an emergency situation. I am also a member of ARES, (Amateur Radio Emergency Service). My family is very important to me, and the gospel enhances our family experience.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and have gained a testimony of its truthfulness. It's a book that evolves with every reading and is another testament of Jesus Christ that works hand in hand with the Old and New Testaments. If we follow the principles outlined in the Book of Mormon, we will find true joy and learn more of why we are here and Heavenly Father's plan for us. We learn the importance of eternal families, giving service, why living worthily is necessary to our eternal well being , and so much more. I can't imagine living any other way. That's right, it's a way of life, 24/7, and I would invite all to see what joy you will find by living it's precepts.

How I live my faith

It's important to me to be involved. I'm involved in our community and our church. With my calling, I work primarily with the women in the church. We organize service projects such as getting wood for families in need, planting or weeding gardens, dinners when needed, helping with children for parents that are sick, and more. We visit with the women in our church on a regular basis. I help with organizing classes that help women in the church learn things such as canning, changing oil in the car, changing tires, making soap, quilting, survival, etc. I've been involved with humanitarian projects as well. These would include making quilts for the community shelters as well as bathroom kits. I'm very involved politically and am the State Committee Woman for our party in the county, and an elected Precinct Committee Officer, (PCO). I'm concerned with where our country is heading and would like to be able to make a difference.
