Hi I'm Donna

I am a mother of twelve. I am able to adapt. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy history, reading, traveling; I am a creative person and I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with twelve wonderful children. I have five grandchildren and a sixth on the way! My family is everything to me. Everything I do is with their best interest in mind. I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for the wonderful blessing of FAMILY and for His plan of happiness. I have a testimony of my Saviour Jesus Christ and of the fact that He atoned for my sins. I know He loves me. I am so thankful for the gift of the Holy Spirit who has led me and guided me and comforted me through many trials. I have endured the loss of my son, Nicholas, during heart surgery, the tragic death of my mother form a car wreck, family challenges and divorce. At times when I thought I could not go on another step, I felt loving arms around me, carrying me. Knowing that my Heavenly Father is looking out for me has given me the desire to help others in need also. I am so glad I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am the secretary in our womens organization, called Relief Society. Our motto is "Charity Never Faileth". This church is one of service, and we try to be as Christ-like as possible. Jesus was the ultimate example of loving and serving others. When I am feeling down or over-whelmed, if I turn to others in need, I forget my own burdens for a time. In fact, my own problems seem to shrink. I also enjoy serving at a hospital in our community as a "Pink Lady". That is someone who helps out in many ways throughout the hospital. I love volunteering in the gift shop and greeting at the front desk. I get to be around people and help to comfort those going through tough times. Some people just start talking and tell me their troubles. I listen and try to give encouragement or a smile. I feel the Spirit guiding me often and I am glad to be an instrument in God's hands. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ is not just a Sunday committment. It is a way of life 24/7. Bishop Welter has taught me to ~STUDY*PRAY*OBEY~ It isn't always easy, but with faith and repentance, I try to stay worthy enough to hear the promptings that tell me what the Lord expects from me each day. I love the scripture verse from The Book of Mormon, "...I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." (1 Nephi 3:7)
