Hi I'm Bonnie Udall

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, a mother of three WONDERFUL grown children and 10 3/4 grandchildren. I was born and raised on a ranch. I LOVE to scrapbook, clean house, work in the yard, decorate, sew and any number of other crafty things. I guess in a nutshell, I love to create!

Why I am a Mormon

I was not born a member of the Church. Fortunately, for me, I fell in love with a member and he married me anyway! In fact, he being a Mormon was the ONLY thing wrong with him! I had some real misconceptions about the Church and yet..... there was something I could not put my finger on about it that kept me asking questions. I went through several sets of missionaries but with the help of a dear x-step-great-grandmother-in-law, (another story, another time!) I acquired a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I explain my testimony like a giant 1,000 or better piece puzzle. When I have the proper information, every single piece of the plan of salvation fits into place. It answers all of my questions, gives me great peace of mind knowing who I am, where I came from and where I would like to be going to.

How I live my faith

I work in the Temple every week and it has brought such great knowledge to me. I don't feel like I have to accept as much on faith anymore. I have pure knowledge regarding the plan of salvation that I can only get by working in the Temple. And being a convert, I work a lot of the doctrines of the Church "backwards". For instance, IF Joseph Smith had made it all up, would he really have created this??? The Temple is one of those things that would have been different. I seriously doubt it would be the basic plan of salvation that it is. It would have been about him and feeding his ego (in my opinion!) Thus, the fact that it is what it is strengthens my testimony of the truthfulness. I also am the year supply specialist for our Church. It's fun, I find basic needs and offer it for sale (non-profit)_ and we all gain together.
