Hi I'm Diane Morales

I'm a school bus driver, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a School bus driver for special education children. I am also a mother of a child with autism, and other developmental issues. I went to college to become a substance abuse counselor and I have my associates degree in addiction studies. I am married and I have 2 step children, 2 boys and my son makes 3 boys altogether. Being a full time mom with a career is difficult especially when you have children with special needs.. I am the last remaining of my family bloodline, being without any family leaves an empty hole in a persons heart. I married into a large family, attend church regularly, and now I have lots of family to love and cherish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert. When growing up, I didn't have much religious influence in my family, so I was free to explore different beliefs. I studied and tried many but always felt that there was something not quite right or was left with questions that were never answered. I started to think, that if I took a little bit from each religion that I would find happiness and that I would be okay - but I still felt empty and rarely felt that I was confident in my relationship with the Lord... I had doubts, I was afraid of hell and that I was going to die condemned. Then , a pair of young men came to my rescue on a cold rainy night, when I felt the most alone, the Lord sent someone to comfort me and to share the gospel with me. I wondered how these two young men could be so filled with the holy spirit, and how was it that they knew the doctrine so well and could easily point to scriptures that answered all of my questions? I wondered if I could have what they had - and if I would feel the same joy that emanated from within them... I hungered for more of the truth. I was compelled to read the Book of Mormon and discovered answers to questions that no one else had ever given me. I felt the spirit move upon my heart, and I knew that these things were true. The reason why I became a Mormon is this, I was seeking for the truth and for the true Church of Jesus Christ... I know the feeling of being confused and full of doubts. I know I have found what I was seeking, and that I no longer need to feel afraid. I know that if you seek , you also will find the truth and feel the holy spirit move upon you too.

How I live my faith

I have not yet been called to serve in my church. However, I look forward to giving back to the loving community that helped me during some of my most trying times as a mother and a wife. I try to make myself available to volunteer during church activities and community service days.
