Hi I'm Pamela

I am a Texan, a Wife, a Mother, a Grandmother, and a Realtor. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 63, and have been married for 44 years. My faith and my family have been the greatest blessings in my life. I have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. In 1997, when my children were finishing high school, I decided to start a career in Real Estate. I formed a team with my daughter in law and my daughter. They took it over when I went into management about 2 years ago.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 19, I met my husband. He was a Mormon, and I was Catholic. I asked him what he thought of his faith, and he bore his testimony that he knew it was true. Because I admired him so much, that sparked an interest for me to learn more. I met with missionaries, and was soon converted. All my unanswered questions were answered. I read The Book of Mormon, and sincerely prayed to know if it was true. The manifestation from the Holy Ghost was the most powerful moment in my life. It was not an easy decision because my family was devout Catholic for many generations, and it hurt them terribly. I told my mother, that for no reason would I have done such a thing, without a sure knowledge that it was right and true. I have never since regretted that decision. If anything, I continue to see evidences convincing me, that it is indeed the true Church of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Our church is made up of a lay ministry. When I joined, my husband having the Priesthood baptized me. We made a commitment that my Baptism would signify to the Lord our willingness to serve Him throughout our life. I sustained my husband as he served as a Bishop for 6 years (of a local congregation) and a Stake President for 10 years (overseeing many congregations.) I have also served in many capacities, as public communications director, and as president of the children's organization and later the women's organization, both on the Stake level, where I worked with many congregations. All our sons and sons in law, have served missions, and all our children have married in our LDS Temples. I am most proud to see our children and their families living the beliefs of our Church.
