Hi I'm Ruth

I'm business owner, I'm a first generation American, I'm a wife, I'm a mother of 4, I'm a volunteer, & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, sister, auntie, wife, mother, and friend to the best people ever! My parents are both converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My mother joined when she was 18 in Glasgow, Scotland and my father was 15 in Liverpool, England. They moved to the USA to be closer to the church for their children (thanks, mom & dad) So, I am a first generation American! I like to say that I create my own chaos. When asked to do something I rarely say "no". I have 4 children. I love to go camping with my family. I think my kids prefer that over Disneyland! I own a business making people happy. What a great job!! I volunteer for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I volunteer for the school whenever asked. I love to read, going to the movies, being outdoors, watching my kids play soccer, doing photography, cooking, and most of all, being with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true, that my Heavenly Father lives and loves me. That He sent his Son, Jesus Christ to this earth, so I may return to live with him again. I know that there is a living prophet today. I know that the Lord guides and directs him. I have seen many miracles in my life. I know He answers my prayers. I know that families can be together forever. I have so many family members that I can't imagine living the eternities without them. I know that this gospel brings me joy, happiness, peace, and love. I know that trying to be like Jesus in my life makes me a better person. I know that through being obedient, I am blessed. I have faith that He lives!

How I live my faith

I try to be obedient. I love when people ask me what I am doing this weekend and I say that I am volunteering for my church. I am in the Primary and I work with the children in the area ages 18 mon.-11years. I think there is no better place than working with the children. I love them. They bring the sweet spirit to the meetings. I love that in primary they learn the basic gospel principals and they have a testimony of Jesus. I love teaching primary music to the kids. I love singing praises to my Heavenly Father through song. I have gone to girls’ camp in my life a total of 14 times. They go when they are age 12-18. I love it! I think it is a great place for the girls to be away from things of the world and gain a testimony. I love to go rappelling with the youth. It is a great teaching tool about Faith. My husband and I have done this for years and love sharing our testimony with the youth.
