Hi I'm Burnetta Anne Gerber

I'm a Mormon. Wife of Raymond L. Gerber; mother of 9; Grandmother of 35; Gr-Grandmother of 13. I teach whole wheat bread making.

About Me

Born & raised on a ranch. Grew up on the back of a horse behind a herd of cows. Milked 22 cows morning & night all of my teenage years. Teach Back to Basic skills, ie making 100 % wheat bread that is light & delicious. Am a wife, mother, grandmother & great-grandmother. Play piano & organ, conduct music do creative writing. Am a good cook & enjoy cooking delicious foods.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God lives that Jesus Christ is HIs son, my Savior & Redeemer. I know that an apostacy occurred after the Savior was crucified and that Joseph Smith was called by God to be the Prophet of the Restoration. I know that he did indeed translate the Book of Mormon from ancient records delivered to him by the Prophet Moroni and that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I know that a person will get closer to God by abiding by it's precepts than by any other book. I have had four years of Seminary and eight years of adult continued education in the scriptures including two years each studying the Old & New Testaments, the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine & Covenants. I love the scriptures and I know that they are true and are the words of God to His children. I know that we have a Prophet that stands as the President of the Church of Jesus Christ today namely Thomas S. Monson and that we have prophets, seers & revelators who lead, guide & direct us in the ways of the Lord through modern revelation. I know that the keys of the kingdom and the Priesthood of God are on the earth today. I know that God hears and answers our prayers, that He knows each one of us personally and is interested in our individual lives. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all of my life and I have a personal witness from God that this is His only true & living Church on the face of the earth. This is my testimony & I give it in the name of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have in the past been the music director in the Wards & Branches I have lived in. I have conducted music in the Church for some 55 years or so. I love the hymns and enjoy serving in the music when I have that opportunity. Right now I am teaching the 14 & 15 year old teenagers in the Mount Pleasant 5th Ward Sunday School. We are studying the Book of Mormon. I do enjoy teaching in the Church. I have also accompanied congregational singing on the piano and have played hymns in the chapels of two of the temples I have served in. I am a visiting teacher as well which means that I have several of the sisters in the Ward that I visit each month to give them a lesson from the Church Magazine, the Ensign. I have a companion sister who goes with me to visit these sisters each month.
