Hi I'm Donna

I'm a Mormon. I'm a career mother and grandmother who joined the church at twenty eight years old.

About Me

I'm still a career mom and grandmom who loves to read [I was an English major!], to write, to cook and to go to art museums. I especially love pottery and sculpture. I've been married for 39 years [but who's counting?] to a great guy I met at NC State.

Why I am a Mormon

Thirty years ago,I realized that I just didn't have answers for my religious questions. I "church hopped", read books on the various religions, and prayed to find out the truth as to which church my husband and I should raise our children in. After sincerely praying, two elders came by our home and asked if we wanted to know what the Mormon church believed about families. We invited them back. We heard their message and each of us put it to the test. I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon really was a true record. I knew that if I got an answer to that question, then I would know if Joseph Smith was really a prophet and if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was really Christ's church on earth today. I testify that I received a confirmation by the spirit that the Book of Mormon was true. I have read, studied and served in the Church since that day and have learned many more truths and directions for my life. Our family has been blessed abundantly by these truths. I knew The Book of Mormon was true then. I know it is true now. I know that there is a living prophet in our times. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the restored church of Jesus Christ on earth today.

How I live my faith

Right now I am happily and busily serving in our women's organization in my ward. I keep busy organizing activities and lessons to help the women of our church keep progressing in spiritual and temporal knowledge. Recently, I helped organize 72 hour disaster preparedness workshop! I also get to visit several women monthly to teach and to befriend. I especially love studying the scriptures. Right now I am immersed in the New Testament. It is amazing.
