About Me

I have been happily married to my Best Friend for almost 34 years! We have a beautiful partnership with each other and with Christ! We have been blessed with 7 wonderful children, and then blessed with 7 more as they chose their wonderful spouses. Then came the Real Fun of being a Grandma of soon to be 15 amazing grandkids! I enjoy spending time with my family and having fun with my family and my friends. I love to travel and enjoy exploring new places. I love music and singing. I love to study and learn about natural medicines. But I also know there is a wonderful use for modern medicines as I have a grandson who was born with severe heart problems and the mirracle of modern medicine cured him! I also have a grandaughter with type 1 diabetes and she also would not be here without modern medicine!!!! I have a great passion for Genealogy and family history and getting to know my ansestors by doing research on them. Family is very important to me.....The Past.... The Present.... and The Future...

Why I am a Mormon

All my youth I was searching for something. Something that I know now was a personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. I was always going to different churches with my friends. I remember going to Vacation Bible School when I was about 6 and it continued with different friends and different churches until I was a teenager. When I was a freshman my friends that were LDS invited me to Church with them. It was different than any other church. I felt like I had come home. My friends introduced me to the Missionaries and as I listened and learned from them. The things that I heard felt like, I had heard them before, like I was remembering something that I had always known. I was fifteen when I was baptized and joined the LDS church. My dad was a recovering alcoholic. He never drank at home but that meant he was never home. And when he was it wasn’t a pleasant time. I didn’t know what it was like to really feel a fathers love. I knew what the gospel taught about Fathers and how much Heavenly Father and Jesus Loved us. One Sunday school teacher was comparing Heavenly Fathers love with her own fathers love and it disturbed me because I had never felt that from my father a But I ached to feel that love. I pleaded with Heavenly Father to understand, and I felt a rush of love pour over me and I knew then that I am His daughter, and that He loves me very much. He sees the good in me, that I am His, He will never leave me. And when I stumble & fall He picks me up and helps me to start all over again! He will make weak things become strong. And With Him and Through Him all things are possible! I am so thankful for a loving Heavenly Father and for a loving relationship with Him that helped me to forgive and be forgiven and to have a wonderful relationship with my earthly father before he passed away. And for leading me to the LDS church where I can learn and grow and become the person Heavenly Father wants me to be! I am so grateful that I AM MORMON!

How I live my faith

One of the blessings of being a member of this church is the opportunity we have to serve others. Right now I have the blessing of serving others by overseeing the spiritual, emotional, and physical wellbeing of the women in our ward and within our ward boundaries. I work with the Bishop and other ward leaders to see to the needs of the families in our ward. I work with amazing women who are always willing to help others! I strive daily to live my life in a more Christ like way! Each morning I pray for inspiration on what I should do and who might need my help today! Some days are crazy with the business of life but with the help of my Heavenly Father, He helps me prioritize and guides me to where I am needed most. “We are the Lord's hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve and to lift His children. He is dependent upon each of us.”—President Thomas S. Monson
