Hi I'm Vicki
I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother and retired. I'm a Mormon.
My husband and I have been married for 13 years next month. My dear husband is convert to the church and is the love of my life. We are empty nesters and are a blended family. I have 4 loving daughters, 7 wonderful grandchildren and 2 darling great grandchildren. My husband has four sons and one daughter which are gregarious and loving. My ancestors were mormon pioneers. I love working with family history and have traced most of my ancestors for many generations. We have 3 shih tzus and live with a view of the straights of Juan de Fuca. Quilting is my favorite hobby with other types of handwork coming in at a close second. Making humanitarian quilts are one of my past times. I am learning to play the piano, am serving a mission serving military families. My wonderful husband and I love serving these wonderful people. While serving I am also having chemo treatments for non-hodgkins lymphoma. My life is blessed. I feel the prayers of all those praying for me.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I had somewhat of a testimony of the gospel, but not until after I lost my dad and stepmom, did I start to think about being a true convert. I studied the Book of Mormon, read the church magazines, attended church and started living all the principles of the gospel. I now have a great testimony, which is constantly growing. Helping my husband find this path, strengthened my resolve to follow Jesus Christ.
How I live my faith
Presently I am serving a mission for military families. We teach and support them in whatever they need. We also serve them in their day to day needs. Before our mission, I served throughout the years in multiple callings. I was a primary teacher, a young women teacher, a chorister for the women, a family history consultant, a church representative, a quilt leader, on the activity committee for the women and a visiting teacher. On occasion my husband and I assist with lunch at the Senior Center. Our family is important to us. Living the gospel for me is having faith and living the best life I can, following the teachings of Jesus Christ to the best of my ability from day to day. I have found the more I serve others, the happier I am.
