Hi I'm Glora

I'm a wife and a mother of three sweet children. I am a part time accountant and I also enjoy paper-crafting. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Glora. I am the seventh of eight children and I have lived in the same state most of my life. I did leave my home state for about 18 months to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Paris, France. I speak somewhat fluent French and love the people of that country. I have been married to my sweetheart for 11 years and we have three beautiful children. I had worked in accounting before the birth of my first child and was able to continue my work in that field part time. I am able to do most of my work from home and enjoy the flexibility I have with my job and being a home maker. I have a great love of paper-crafting of any sort: cards, scrapbooking, home decor, treat containers, you name it and I love creating it. I have a crafting blog where I share my creations with others. I love reading a good book. I love anything Disney. And I especially love spending time with my family. I am truly blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I always went to church with my family every week and I really enjoyed it. I had great friends there and we learned fun songs and we learned about the scriptures too. I had a paper route growing up and found myself singing those same sweet songs that I had learned on Sunday while delivering newspapers. I especially noticed that on particularly cold days that singing these songs about Heavenly Father, Jesus and eternal families, warmed my body from the inside out. I later realized that this warm and tingly feeling was a confirmation, through the power of the Holy Ghost, of the truths that I was learning at church. I continued to read the scriptures and learn from them. I loved everything that the church represented and I knew that I wanted to be a part of it forever. I know that my Heavenly Father is never more than a prayer away. I know that he loves me for I have felt his love encompass my from head to toe. I am thankful for my Savior, Jesus Christ and I know that he is the one who has made it possible for me to return to my Heavenly Father someday. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that he is a prophet of the Lord. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I am thankful that I was able to learn of these truths line upon line. A little here and a little there. These truths give me peace, comfort and guidance. They make me want to be a good and loving person. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing of my talents with the young children at my church. I am the President of our Primary which means I watch over and help teach the children age 3 to 11. Before that I played the piano for the singing time of the young children. I love being with the children so much. They are eager to learn the gospel and sing the songs. I am blessed to be with them each Sunday. I live my faith by trying to love and serve those around me. I like to look for the little things that might make a difference to someone: giving a kind comment, sharing a smile on a gloomy day, lending a shoulder to cry on, offering a prayer for someone in need. I love being able to help others realize how much the Savior loves them.
