Hi I'm Rosemarie.

I grew up in the beautiful Swiss alps. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mom, and grandma. Life has meaning because of my precious family. I enjoy classical music and English movies from the Victorian era. I love baking and lace knitting. I also delight in stories of people, especially older ones; I love to hear their life experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me the importance of Jesus Christ as the Redeemer of the world. As I became of age, I needed to find out if their teachings were correct. Over time a testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world penetrated my heart. Christ's Atonement is real. He died for all mankind and took our sins upon him. I am thankful for the Church and its teachings. The scriptures and our living prophet support and strengthen my faith in God. I cherish my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints.

How I live my faith

I accept church callings and responsibilities. Most times they are out of my comfort zone, but they bring new experiences and help me grow in spirit. Through these callings I develop greater compassion and understanding for others. I read the scriptures (yes, even the bible) to deepen my understanding of the word of God. They are important to me because they teach me how to conduct my life. Christ said, "Faith without works is dead." He teaches me to be forgiving and to treat all people with fairness and kindness. This is one way I can become a better disciple of Jesus Christ; I start by putting the scriptures into my heart and then I live them. My church leaders help me to stay on the right path, they strengthen me when I am weak. Giving service to mankind was the life of Christ, we must do likewise. I'm an active member of my Ward and love to mingle with the fellow saints. We learn together, laugh together, grow together in spirit and strive to help bear others' burdens. It is through Jesus Christ that my life has purpose. Christ is my redeemer and savior. I am proud to belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
