Hi I'm Lucille

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Utah and have been a mormon all my life. I have lived in 3 states and spent 32 years in education.

About Me

I am a retired educator having been a PE teacher and HS guidance counselor. I loved working with young people. I am a single parent having raised two children and now have 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, reading, quilting and attending my grandchildren's activities. After retiring I served an LDS mission in North Carolina and learned to love the people in the South. I now spend two days a week serving as an ordiance worker in the Mesa, Az. temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a mormon, having grown up in Utah. My great grandparents joined the church in Denmark and England and emigrated to Utah. I have always had a strong testimony of the gospel but my testimony was strengthened when I served my mission and taught others of the gospel and saw them enter the waters of baptism. The scriptures became very important to me and as I studied them I knew for sure they spoke the truth to me and became a source of comfort to me. I have faced a few trials in my life having lost both my parents at an early age, a divorce, and facing serious brain surgery. Through these trials I knew the Lord was with me and that i would be ok. The members of the church have been at my side always and I knew no fear.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a libraian in our ward and serve as an ordiance worker in the Mesa, Az. temple. i serve as a visiting teacher. This means I call on two sisters in our ward each month, give them a spiritual message and learn to love them through service. I have committed myself to study the scriptures each day and have daily prayer. I try to set a good example to others and be of service. My community service consists of donating blood platelets every two months and volunteering for charitable drives in my neighborhood.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Have you ever felt your life had a divine purpose? Why we are here on the earth? Heavenly Father wants all of His children to return to live with Him. This time on earth helps us to grow and develop our talents. We receive a physcal body, learn agency, learn good from evil, learn how the family can help us have eternal life. He wants us to be happy, to find joy. Show more Show less
