Hi I'm Descha

I am a wife, mother and grandma and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm blessed to be a wife to a wonderful husband and we have three beautiful children and one darling 2 year old grandson. I work as a case coordinator at our local hospital. I love to craft, bake and make gifts for others. I especially love scrapbooking!

Why I am a Mormon

I married into an LDS family 21 years ago. I had only briefly heard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints through commercials on TV. Through my husband's family I was able to witness what it meant to be a member of the church. I saw that it brought great joy, happiness and comfort to each and every one of them. I witnessed a closeness of family that I wanted for my family and I observed firsthand what other members were doing in their ward to help one another and it touched my heart. I decided one day that this was something I desired for myself. It was something I had always been searching for. One day while at work I felt prompted to go to a phone book and look up a number to call. I called the first number I found under the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and reached a local seminary building. That evening I had two wonderful missionaries come to my home and give me the lessons. Being baptized and becoming a member has been my greatest blessing and joy. Without the gospel in my life I would be so lost. I am blessed to finally have this comfort and guidance in my life. To me there is nothing better than sitting with my family in church on Sundays sharing in the knowledge and truthfulness of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by serving as the Young Women's secretary in our ward. This calling has blessed me so much! I serve with the most amazing women whom are all great examples to me. I love the opportunity to get to know each and every one of the Young Women and witness what wonderful Young Women they are and see what sweet spirits they have. I absolutely LOVE my calling!
