Hi I'm Anne

I'm a Mormon...from CA. I love gardening because I feel I almost participate in the creation. My garden makes me smile.

About Me

I have many hobbies including music, I play the violin, paint pictures and houses, sew little girls dresses, bead necklaces, relax with a good book. "The Help" is a favorite. Being outside helps me feel free and I want to swirl in the sunshine. I like to fish, "Here, fishy, fishy," and other outside activities like hiking in the mountains. I told my husband that I really don't always have my hands in the dirt. Some times I actually polish my nails, but not often. I spent a lot of my time as a child up a tree. Come winter I like reading the National Geographic because there are so many things in this world that are interesting. Brigham Young University is where I attended school to become a teacher. People ask me where I am from and that is a hard question because with my husband we have made homes in seven states. I have seven children born in different states. I have found there are many wonderful, interesting places to live and good people in all of those places.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I was born to parents that were Mormons and I have always had the religion in my heart. Even as a small child I knew Jesus lives. I want to do what Jesus wants and be what he wants me to become. As I follow this path I find peace in my soul and feel drawn even closer to Him.

How I live my faith

I love to read the scriptures because I find truth there. As I start my day reading the Holy Spirit fills my heart and helps me go throught the day with happiness. I teach a Sunday School class of adults and studying to prepare for the class helps me learn. Studying the scriptures is a life of learning. Serving others is important to me. Right now I am helping a friend who fell and broke her leg. She needs help with physical therapy and transportation to do her erands. Since my children are grown, I have time to help with her needs. As a member of the garden club, I am helping with a project in the city to improve the gardens at a local park.
