Hi I'm Margaret.

I grew up in Lubbock, TX. I'm married and have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. I'm a Mormon and I love my savior, Jesus Christ.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man. I was widowed when I met him but by marrying him my family has really grown. Together we have 7 children, 15 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy scrapbooking and various other crafts. I love to attend the Dallas Temple often. I am now retired but prior to that I worked in mortgage and banking positions.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Methodist church. I believed a lot of their teachings but I always felt like there was something missing in my life. I had questions I couldn't find satisfactory answers for. That is, until I meet the missionaries. My questions were answered and I had a feeling of happiness everytime I read the Book of Mormon. I joined the church at the age of 53 and have never been happier. I believe in the Book of Mormon. I believe that Jesus Christ is our savior. I believe that Heavenly Father loves us. I believe that Joseph Smith, Jr. was a true prophet and he was chosen to restored the true church of Jesus at this time in history. I believe that we have a true prophet of God today and that he leads, guides amd direct us. And I say this in the name of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I strive everyday to find ways to be of service to those I come in contact with. I belong to Kiwanis International and vounteer at our local library. Every week I visit with less active or inactive sisters. I just want them to know that someone cares about them. My goal is to encourage them to come to church and let them know they have a friend there. I facilitate a class in my home for church members in my area every Thursday. After this class we attend the Dallas Temple.
