Hi I'm Sanetta

I live in Eagle, Idaho. I am wife and homeschooling mom to my four children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 11 children. There are 7 girls and 4 boys. I have four children of my own. My hobbies have changed according to the different stages of my life. Right now, my joy comes from the success in my kids, as they progress in life. We have the opportunity to homeschool our children and I find so much fulfillment in it. I also love to garden, learn new skills, and try new ways to become self- sufficient. I love to learn and especially see the benefit of my labors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a gospel-centered family. I was baptized at age 8 and attended church every Sunday as a Ladder-day Saint. It wasn't until I went to college, no longer able to ride on my parents' testimony, that I discovered I needed a testimony for myself. I have always believed the church was true ever since being taught in my youth. It made sense to me. I loved what the Plan of Salvation taught and what it meant for me personally. I desired to marry in the temple and to be sealed for eternity to my own family someday. This desire was my foundation for receiving my own testimony. I have had several experiences in which the Holy Ghost has testified gospel truths to me. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on the earth today and that Our Savior, Jesus Christ, is the head of it. I know he has appointed President Thomas S. Monson to be his mouthpiece here on the earth. I know President Monson is a prophet of God. I know that if I keep my baptismal and temple covenants, that I will be able to live with my family for eternity, even after death. This promise gives me hope daily and increases my faith. It provides me with sunshine on the darkest of days. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and knows me personally. This is evident to me every day when I contemplate the blessings and many tender mercies in my life. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ and I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In our church, I currently serve the members by helping to meet their temporal and maybe even mental needs such as arranging meals for a sick person or new mother, help with babysitting or other arrangments. I'm able to visit with a few sisters each month, sharing a message of hope or having a discussion about a principles of the gospel. We are able to get to know eachother better and this has been a blessing to me as it has helped me to meet new friends. We call this visiting teaching because not only do we learn from each other, but we gain lasting friendships as we visit. I hope that each day through my daily interaction with people that they are able to see my love for my Savior and my commitment to serving my Heavenly Father.
