Hi I'm Paula

I'm a quilter, spin wool, knit, am a mom and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I was four years old I bugged my mom to make me a vest from fabric I had cut out. I still love to work with fabric and sew, quilt, knit, spin and have a degree in Clothing and Textiles. I bugged my mom to find me someone to teach me and in kindergarten an aunt taught me to knit. I love getting together with other women and creating beautiful projects. I love to serve others and teach others when I can. I am a mom of three children ranging in ages from 6 to 24. I love to spending time with them at a local lake. I have been married for 26 years and lvoe to go on dates and trips alone with my husband when we can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was bron into the church and both sides of my family attending the church. As a teenager I relaized that I had my own faith and it wasn't just what my family had taught me. I realized that the teachings of the Savior and the church are true. Being a member of the church has brought peace to my heart when I have struggeled. It has blessed me and my family.

How I live my faith

As a women of 21 I served a mission on the Island of Mindanao in the Phillippines. After returning from my mission I soon got married and was asked to serve as a leader to young women in the chuirch. I have also worked with the womens' organizaion in leardership and with children as well. I am happy to help and do things not only in the church but also in my communicty I have worked in the school system as a volunteer in many ways from painting backdrops for school programs to making cosumes and teaching about art pioneer history like quilitng and early American life. Serving and helping members of the church and the community are a reflection of my belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
