Hi I'm Zoe,

I was born and raised in Montana. I like country living. I like to read historical novels. I love America, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and I have three sons. One of my sons died in an accident January 2011. I have one granddaughter and four grandsons and awesome daughter-in-laws. We lived in Colorado for 13 years where my husband worked on the Paonia and Crawford Dam projects and also at the Andesite Rock Quarry. We joined the Red Rock Ramblers square dance club. We became members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in March 1962. We moved back to Montana. I was a High School secretary for 20 years, Then I put together a family history book. My husband and I served a 2 year mission for our church in South Carolina. And now I am busy being retired.

Why I am a Mormon

We had neighbors in Paonia, Colorado who were Mormons. We had questions about their religion. They had answers. They invited the missionaries to meet with us. We learned about Heavenly Father's Plan of Salvation and that the Atonement of Jesus Christ was central to His plan. We learned that Jesus Christ restored His gospel in the latter days through the Prophet Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith translated an ancient record which is the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ. We were baptized, We continue to do those things that will help our testimony grow stronger. We pray, attend church meetings, read the Bible and the Book of Mormon and listen to the words of counsel and encouragement from our Prophet and our Twelve Apostles and other local and general authorities of the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily prayer and scripture study. I go to church every Sunday. I do not shop on Sunday. I do not watch R rated movies I enjoy teaching the gospel. I taught Early Morning Seminary classes to High School students for 10 years. They met in my home every school day morning before school started to study the scriptures. I enjoyed teaching the truths of the gospel to the youth. I do volunteer work at the local Library. I spend about an hour each day indexing public records for family search indexing. These records are then transferred to familysearch.org and everyone can search these records for no cost. One of the big projects for the indexers last year was the 1930 census records. This year indexers will begin the work of indexing the 1940 census. These are great helps to people researching their family history.
