Hi I'm Bonnie

I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, school teacher, hiker, travel lover and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I just celebrated our 32 anniversary. We have four grown children, three granddaughters, and our youngest son left to serve in the Brisbane, Australia Mission. I currently teach English in the same high school where all of my children graduated. I love to travel and to hike and I’m especially fond of the Grand Canyon. I feel a closeness to God when I’m amongst His creations, and my soul longs to be in the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

After I graduated from high school and went away to college, I realized that I had to learn for myself if the church I had been attending my whole life was really where I should be. I prayed and studied the scriptures and through the power of the Holy Ghost I received a confirmation that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on the earth today and that Jesus is the Christ and through Him all is possible. Since that time over 34 years ago, I have continued to have the Holy Ghost bear witness to me of the truths taught in the scriptures and at church.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon affects everything I do every day of my life. I truly try to follow Christ’s example and see others as He and our Heavenly Father do. I try to be honest in all I do and to never do anything where someone could question my integrity or honesty. I try to set a good example to all I come in contact with, especially the students I teach. As I look into my students’ eyes each day, I try to see them as God does and help them realize the potential they each have. I love to serve and have served in many organizations in our church. For years I have worked in the Primary – the organization for children ages 18 months to 12 years. I have loved serving the children, teaching them, and feeling the spirit as they sing. I know that through service we can lose ourselves and become more Christ like as we follow His example by doing unto others. I find so much joy in serving in serving others!
