Hi I'm Carol Gregory

I wear many hats: wife, mom, grandmother, teacher, and convert of 42 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When most people look at me, they see a person missing her right hand. When Heavenly Father looks at me, He sees a Daughter of God who can tackle life's adversities because I know there are many angels in heaven and on earth cheering me on. Recently I dislocated the elbow of my "complete" side and I was figuratively totally helpless, except that the Lord provided an extra set of hands through the nurturing I received from my husband, family, physicians, and many Mormons.My other miracle was the "bionic" brace I was given that allowed my elbow to heal quickly and completely. Each of us face challenges which may not be visible but are nonetheless very real. I am deeply thankful for a Father in Heaven who knows each of us and loves us as we strive to learn the lessons of life! When children ask me what happened to my hand, I first ask them what they think might have happened! One child looked at me and commented, "God just made you special!" Actually, He has made each of us special!!

Why I am a Mormon

The missionaries knocked on our door six weeks after we were married. I joined the church because I wanted to follow the plan of happiness that the missionaries taught us and it has truly been a way of life that has given me great peace and joy even though there have been bumps along the way. I wanted to be married forever, and that assurance was made possible when my husband and I were sealed in the Temple for time and all eternity one year after we joined the Church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in the Temple so that others can make eternal covenants with their spouses and with Heavenly Father so that they can be married forever. I also love studying the Gospel and receiving the comfort that comes from prayer.
