Hi I'm Diana

I like rubik's cubes, I have five childreen, I have been married to the same wonderfull man for almost 30 years, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an everyday person. I like the Rubik's cubes and can solve one of any size with just a little help from youtube to take care of the parity errors that occur on larger ones. My friends say that I am kind, helpful, friendly, a good listener, smart, creative, insightful and intuitive. I can be silly and playful, in fact I usually have little toys or puzzles with me and my grand kids enjoy my company. I can also be serious and enjoy meaningful conversion. My biggest fear is not being good enough and my greatest dream is to help people who are hurting to feel better. Most of the last thirty years have been spent raising myself and my children. Now I am in a kind of transition time when my youngest is in high school. I used to want to be a mom when I grow up but now I think I want to be a grandma! I have done some homeschooling, written some poetry and published a couple of web pages. currently, I do volunteer work and substitute teaching at a childcare center and there is not much that makes me happier than seeing the kids' excitement when they see me come in. I may go back to school and study psychology and social work. We'll see.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints just about as long as I can remember. My parents joined when I was three. I remember going to the temple to be sealed as a family and it is still one of my fondest memories. As a teenager I considered not staying with the church but it did not make sense because there was so much to gain by living the gospel and not really much to give up in comparison. At 17 I made a chart showing the pros and cons of four different cases. 1 the church is true and I live it, 2 the church is true and I don’t live it, 3 the church is not true and I live it and 4 the church is not true and I don’t live it. I was at a point in my life where I had to choose to live it or not and if I choose to live it then I would have to make some difficult changes, i.e. break-up with my boyfriend. I was also working under the premise that I could not know wither or not it was true because it could not be scientifically proven and I had to account for the possibility that I only believed it because I was “brainwashed” to do so. I also considered the fact that even though I had to make my decision without knowing for sure if the church was true or not I still had the promise that the Savior gave as recorded in John 7:17 “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” There was no way in my right mind I could give up eternity for anything that this world had to offer so I decided to go for it whole heartedly and see what happened. It was not painless and it has not always easy but I have never looked back and have never regretted the decision to remain active, not even for a moment.

How I live my faith

I love the Savior Jesus Christ with all of my heart. He is my King. To please him is every moment’s purpose. The peace and comfort and guidance I receive from the Holy Spirit is what I live for. To live eternally with my Father in Heaven is my hope and my fondest dream. To serve His children and lift their burdens is my work and my joy. I am one and I am small so I can not do very much but what I do, I do with my heart and it is enough. (so the spirit tells me even thought I don’t always feel like it is enough.) In the church I work in the youth organization, mentoring and teaching youth and youth leaders and I help organize annual youth events such as Young Woman's Camp and Youth Conference.
