Hi I'm Maxine

I live in California. I have a degree in Biology Education, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have four children and seven grandchildren. My hobbies are SCUBA diving, reading, and gardening. I love camping and spending time with my family. My family is the most important thing in my life and I love them with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been members of the church for many generations and I am proud of the sacrifices which they made so that I could belong to this church. I have studied the gospel all of my life and have a testimony that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that because of the blessings of the temple, my family and I can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I am a visiting teacher which means that I visit other women and help strengthen them. I also lead music in the church. In the past I have taught the children and youth, participated in the cub scouts, and held leadership positions in the women's, youth, and children's organizations. I belong to a scripture study group that meets weekly and love to read the Bible and Book of Mormon because of the great examples that the scripture stories bring to us.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and want all of our friends and neighbors to enjoy the blessings of the gospel like we do. I know that my life is better because I am a Mormon and I know that it is a blessing to know why I am here on earth and what Heavenly Father's plan is for me. Show more Show less
