Hi I'm Danette

I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know who I am. I know God's plan and I am following Him in faith.

About Me

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I used to say that I wanted ten children—I made it to five—and now with two son-in laws I have seven awesome children! We are “Netty” and “Papa” to three—soon to be five—grandchildren. Being a grandma is awesome! I like to go rock hunting, play tennis, travel and be with my family. I am enjoying my new job as a receptionist at a children's dentist office. I also help to cater weddings occasionally.

Why I am a Mormon

*I was born and raised as a Latter-day Saint. I have wonderful parents who taught me from an early age that I also am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me and wants me to return home to him. *I believe that I lived before this earthly existence. I believe that my life has a purpose and that how I live this life is vital to my peace and happiness now and eternal life in the world to come. *I believe that salvation and eternal life come only through my Savior Jesus Christ. *I believe that the same organization that existed when Jesus lived upon the earth has again been restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith and that only The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints holds all the keys necessary for me to be able to live with my family forever. *I believe that we are not alone as we live day-to-day and that through our obedience and striving to live according to the teachings of Jesus, we can have the Holy Ghost to be with us to guide us and comfort us through this earthly journey.

How I live my faith

Daily personal prayer and scripture study are a must for me. When I stay in connection with my Heavenly Father I feel His love and when I read and ponder the scriptures I hear what He wants me to know and do. When I feel overwhelmed in life I can always attribute it to a recent lack of close communication with Him and then I reconnect and feel that peace and guidance again in my life.
