Hi I'm Patti

I am a mother of 4 wonderful children and grandmother of 12. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Arizona where I lived until I was 10 years old when my family moved to Idaho. I was raised in Hailey Idaho for the rest of my childhood and loved the mountains and the beauty of the area. I love the outdoors and have always found peace in the beauties of this earth. I am now a widow and live in Arizona, but have plenty of company with 2 of my sons in the same town I live in and one 3 hours away. My daughter lives in Texas, but we still talk on the phone daily. I am blessed to have wonderful children and 12 grand kids who keep my life exciting. There always seems to be something to do!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and have always loved the messages of eternal families and how my Savior, Jesus Christ died for my sins. As I grew up in the church I still had to find out the truth of it for myself by reading the scriptures and praying to a loving Heavenly Father to know if the church was true and if the Book of Mormon was indeed another testament of Jesus Christ. As I studied and prayed I felt a powerful calm and peace inside that let me know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is indeed His true church and I have never looked back. In short, I am a Mormon because God let me know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by keeping the commandments that have been given to bring us happiness. I also attend my weekly church meetings and teach a class to people who have just joined the church. I love seeing the blessings that come into peoples lives as I teach them of the scriptures and of the power of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
