Hi I'm Lorraine

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the wife of an incredible man, mother of 6 amazing children, grandmother of 3 (and one on the way) grandchildren and life continues to get better daily! Anything to do with my family is where and what I want to be! I love music. . .all aspects and love to share it in any way that I can. One of my favorite ways is by playing the piano, for myself or accompanying others. Journaling is a passion of mine as well as Photography. . . thus scrapbooking is a given! I love writing letters and miss the fact that email and such has taken over. . .although I do utilize that, also. I LOVE snow! What wonderful stuff! It's so white and elegant, filled with sparkling adventure! Basically, I love ALL the seasons and the fact that each season brings with it something new and different!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but have had ample opportunities to choose another path. I haven't, because I have experienced the Love of the Lord Jesus Christ MANY times in my life and have a firm testimony that He is real, that He lives, and that He and my Heavenly Father love me. . . .and all of us, His children. I feel great happiness when I study the words of the prophets and kneel in prayer, alone, with my family, and in my meetings. By serving the Lord and others, I find great joy and satisfaction! Being a Mormon isn't just going to church, it is a way of life! Living my life as the Lord Jesus Christ has outlined in His gospel brings much joy to me and to my family. And. . . family is central to this beautiful gospel. I cannot express the joy I find in serving my family and knowing that the Lord is pleased with my efforts. I know that if I do all the things that He requires of me, I will be blessed to be with my family forever, through the gift of His great Atonement and the blessings of Temple covenants and sealings. I am a Mormon because I love my family, love the Lord, love His gospel, and love being in His service!

How I live my faith

It seems it would seem such a simple thing to describe how I live my faith, but oh how many facets of life there really is. I try to live as Christ Himself would live, loving others and serving others. I guess that's pretty general, huh? Well, in striving to do that, we as a family spend time each day reading from the scriptures and making sure that we pray together morning and night. We work together and enjoy evenings that are set aside for just family. I strive to help my neighbors, friends and family in any way that I can. I currently work with the young women in my ward. . . .what wonderful girls they are, filled with a desire to do and be good and they are great examples to all those around them. As young women, they are striving to incorporate the values of faith, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice & accountability, good works, integrity and virture into their lives. It is inspiring to share time and activities with them. I also enjoy visiting a few sisters in our ward, and learning new things from them and having the opportunity to serve them. What a great blessing that is! Sooo much to learn and gain from others' experiences. Being in a Ward is like having another family, and it is great to know that I can help them and that they will be there for me, when I need help. I love serving others!
