Hi I'm Joyce

I am an elementary school secretary, a gardener, knitter, quilter and grandma. I have 3 grown sons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In the empty nest part of my life I enjoy working with young children at an elementary school where I am the secretary. I have worked in the school system for 15 years. My young grandson lives close and we have a lot of fun together. I find time for gardening both outside and inside(the latest is orchids). I enjoy sewing and quilting and have been learning how to knit for the past few years. I have one son still in college and two married sons.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an active Mormon family in Southern California. In my teenage years something that a church leader said sparked a desire in my heart to always follow Jesus Christ. I knew that it was important to stay close to Jesus Christ by being active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. Because I chose this path I have always been blessed. I have tried to always do what is right and knew it was important to teach my 3 sons to love the Lord and obey the commandments. I know that my Father in Heaven hears me and answers my prayers.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday in the way I treat others. My job in an elementary school gives me many opportunities to help others and show kindness. I have many friends that belong to different religions and I value their friendship and love. I learn to be a better person from their example and kindness. I especially enjoy working with the children in our church. My latest calling was teaching the nursery class of 18 month old to 3 year old children. Yes - we even teach them lessons and they do learn many wonderful things. I visit 4 wonderful senior ladies each month and enjoy learning about their lives. Attending my church meetings each Sunday is the way I maintain peace in my busy life and enjoy recharging my spirit so I can try each week to be a better person.
