Hi I'm Ann

I'm a mother, a grandma, & married my HS sweetheart. I love cooking, sewing & helping people. I'm a Realtor & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Portland, Oregon. My life has been spared many times, once when I had spinal menengitis and when I was in a plane crash. I love learning and my husband and I met in a HS English class. We had our first date the night he was baptized. We eloped to the Salt Lake City temple and were married. We enjoy working and spending time together. We are the proud parents of ten children and love our 22 grandchildren with two more coming. My family is super important to me. I love people and enjoy doing things with them. I work as a Realtor and it is so satisfying to help people realize their dreams whether it is buying or selling Real Estate. A few years ago, my husband was transfered to Colorado and we learned to love the people, the weather, and the opportunities here. When we moved back to Oregon to take care of aged parents, we decided one day we would move back here, back home. This time we brought my husband's Mom with us when we took the opportunity to relocate our business to Colorado. Though I am not talented in art or photography like my children & husband, I do enjoy cooking, sewing and teaching others. Of course the teacher always learns more than the students. I also enjoy planting and harvesting a vegetable garden. The weeding isn't great but to enjoy the fruits of your labor it takes consistant work. I enjoy life and look forward to the journey.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the church is true. The church gives me guidance and purpose in my life. It helps me be a better wife, mother, and grandmother. It gives me comfort to know I am a Child of God and that my Heavenly Parent's love me and care about me. It gives me strength to know I will see my parents again and that by following the teachings of Jesus, I can be in Heaven again with my loved ones. By serving others and trying to do what is right, it makes me happy and my life is complete. I love knowing that we are led by a Prophet who does guide and lead the church and is Heavenly Father's spokes person on this earth. I love standing for something, and being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My faith is my life, I try to follow the teachings of the church and teach others as well. I also try to live the Golden Rule. I serve in my community by volunteering for community service projects. As a Realtor, I try to help those who need help. I have a group of friends who I can count on and who I visit to check on their needs. I serve as President of our church women's organization. The Relief Society organization is one of the oldest and largest women's groups in the world. We teach one another, perform acts of service and give relief to others. We also believe that one righteous woman or person can make a difference in the world. We honor life, marriage, the family, and try to make a difference in the life of others as well as our own life.
