Hi I'm Terri Farrer

I'm a Mormon. I grew up on cattle ranch in Idaho. I married my high school sweetheart. We raised 4 sons, they are our sunshine.

About Me

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I work in healthcare in my hometown. I love almost anything I can do with my family. My husband and our family spent lots of time following our sons in sports and skiing while raising them. Our lives center around each other and our sons and their beautiful families. My husband is in insurance and is also a ski instructor. I love home decorating and design and was able to draw the layout for our home. I love refinishing furniture and reupholstering and like to find the exact fabric to compliment a piece. I love being a grandmother and still feeling young and spending time with my grandkids and being a part of their lives. My husband is my best friend, we each have our own interests, but always make sure to spend time together and make each other a priority.

Why I am a Mormon

Early in our marriage my husband and I did not have the gospel in our home. I remember feeling a palpable difference and level of happiness in my home, from the homes of my friends and family who were active church members. It was something I yearned for in my life. The day my husband ask me to be sealed in the temple meant more to me than when he asked me to marry him. I knew then he did not just want to be married to me, but wanted to be with me and our children for eternity, that we were more important to him than anything else in this world. That's how I feel about him too. I have lived without the church in my life...and with it. I would never go back. I have a testimony that this is Jesus Christ's church on the face of the earth today. That the Gospel and will of Jesus Christ is carried to the people by a living prophet in this day. I believe Thomas S. Monson is the lord's chosen prophet for this day. I know Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ that goes hand in hand with the bible to help and guide us back to our Heavenly Father and to our Savior, Jesus Christ. The way I know this is I put it to the test. I read it for myself. I got down on my knees and prayed to our Heavenly Father to let me know the truth for myself. As they say....the rest is history.

How I live my faith

My life has been blessed over the years by serving in the Young Women's program multiple times and in teaching the youth, and even serving in the Nursery. I have been a secretary in several of my callings. I have been a teacher to my peers and in every case found out I was the one who was blessed the most. I serve as a librarian right now and love my co-worker, and being able to help everyone on Sundays. I also am blessed to serve with my sweetheart as a Temple worker once a week in the beautiful temple not far from our home. I am also a visiting teacher, meaning I have ladies I have a responsiblity to watch over and visit to make sure they are ok.They always turn into dear friends. We have one son still at home and we read scriptures together each night as a family. It brings so much peace to my life to be a member of the church. I know I am a daughter of God and he wants the very best for me...and I know he wants that for you too.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

You can find out for yourself by reading the Book of Mormon. While you read it pay attention to the way you feel. Do you feel peaceful? After you have read the Book of Mormon sincerely pray to know if it is the word of God. I once heard someone say they like to drink the water from a brook upstream where it is crystal clean and pure, and the cattle havn't waded through it. That's how you find out if the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is true. If you want to find out about something, go to the source. Show more Show less
