Hi I'm Rosemary

I am a happy person and also a wife, daughter, mother and grandmother. I love to quilt, garden and cook AND I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love life!! Not in the "everything's coming up roses" sense but in the fact that I look forward to each day and I try to have a positive outlook. That's not to say that I don't have my challenges and difficulties, but when they do happen, I try to learn something from them to strengthen myself. I am a mother of 5 grown children with three married. My favorite role is being a grandmother and I am blessed with 4 grandchildren, 3 boys and 1 girl. I love doing activities with my grandchildren and enjoy going for walks with them, taking them shopping or making my famous cinnamon rolls with them. Early on, I set some goals for myself. I call them short term goals, long term goals and life goals or something I wanted to try one time just to see if I could do it. One of my life term goals was to learn to quilt and make just one quilt. Ha ha. Several quilts later I can truthfully say I'm hooked on quilting so it has become my favorite hobby. Other people have a 72 hour emergency kit and while I have one of those, I also have several quilt kits stashed away. I have made quilts for all of my grandchildren, my mom, my daughters and for one sister. I have several in the works and love looking at fabric. I also love to scrapbook and cross-stitch. Oh and of course, I love to read and to garden. I have a fish pond in my backyard that has about 8 goldfish of various sizes in it. Someday I'd like to build a new fish pond and not by using a prefab either!

Why I am a Mormon

At first I was a Mormon because my family has been members for the past several generations. My great grandfather and great grandmother were tracked out by the missionaries in Bristol, England in the early 1900's. They had lost an infant son who died before he could be baptized into the Church oh England. They had to bury the innocent child in the undedicated side of the graveyard. This was very upsetting to my grandparents and the first question they asked of the missionaries was about infant baptism. Satisfied with the answer from the missionaries, they read the Book Of Mormon several times and were then baptized. My great grandfather served in the branch presidency for 35 years. After reading his testimony, I read the Book Of Mormon for my own testimony. Each time I read the scriptures, I understand more and my testimony grows stronger. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who loves me, listens to my prayers and answers them. I also know that my elder brother, Jesus Christ died for my sins that I might overcome the challenges in this life and have eternal life with my family.

How I live my faith

Currently I serve as a gospel doctrine teacher in Sunday School. I really enjoy teaching my fellow brothers and sisters each Sunday as it gives me a weekly opportunity to share the lessons I study and also share my testimony. I also visit several women in my neighborhood each month. This is an opportunity to share a message of inspiration with them, see if they have any needs, share a laugh and enjoy their friendships. I have served in my community for several years now. We have several community events such as a festival where we come together to celebrate our diversity. This creates an aura of fellowship, tolerance and enjoyment of different customs and traditions. I feel that by serving in my community I am following the teachings of Jesus Christ by learning to love and serve all of His children.
