Hi I'm Joyce

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of three (1 daughter, 2 sons). I went to college (USU--Go Aggies!) and received a B.S. in Office Administration. I've worked as a legal secretary, an elementary school aide and a nutrition assistant, but my most important job has been as a mother. We have 6 wonderful grandchildren, and enjoy spending time with them when we can. I enjoy reading--historical fiction is a favorite. I sew a bit and also do some crocheting. I was raised on a farm and so enjoy growing veggies and flowers.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life. Even though my father was not an active member of the Church when I was born and my mother was not a member until we were baptized the same day when I was eight, I feel that because of the love and attention received from family and friends that I was born in the Church. I receive guidance through my membership in the Church that has blessed me throughout my life and I know will continue to bless me as I strive to live up to the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that my prayers are answered. Sometimes I get impatient if they are not answered in my time, but things always turn out better when I humble myself to wait on The Lord. I know that there are no coincidences in life--that all things are for a reason and I need to be humble and try my best to do what I know is right.

How I live my faith

I've served in many different capacities in my ward, currently I work with girls ages 10-11. They are beautiful daughters of our Heavenly Father and I hope that I can help them build their testimony that He knows them and loves them. My husband and I also teach a Sunday lesson at a correctional facility and have been blessed so much by the people we serve there. I also serve as a visiting teacher and appreciate the opportunity I have of serving my sisters.
