Hi I'm Deanna Black

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a mother of 6 wonderful children.

About Me

I am a single mother with 6 children. I have been on my own for almost seven years. I own a small bussiness and completed my education recieving my Bachelors degree last year. It was a difficult thing to accomplish but with help from my children, friends, and good leaders and a supportive ward and neighbors, i have been able to accomplish my goal. The most important help came from a loving Father in Heaven who has helped me along the way even when times became to challenging to go on. Staying grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and staying involved and active with my children has kept us on a very safe course through many difficult challenges. I will always stand as a witnes of God at all times, in all things and in all places...

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church and have always been an active member. I have a strong and sure knowledge of Jesus Christ and His love for me. While my life has not been easy I have been guided and protected through some very dark days with His love for me and my children. I have a sure and strong testimony of Joseph Smith and the first vision. I know without doubt or reservation that he saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and helps me in my life when i am searching for answers that i need to help me in my life. While I know this life is not easy following the teachings of modern day Prophets gives me the strenght and help I need in my life to go forward. I also know that i have a sure knowledge of Satan and that he is raging in the hearts and minds of people all over the world. He knows his time is short and his winds of destruction are blowing through families and tearing them apart through divorce, addiction, perversion, pornograpy, media and music. I have chose to stay on the straight and narrow even when he tries to tempt and try me. I am grateful for what i know for it keeps me safe and beings me peace...that is the greatest gift we can obtain in this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every week. I am a teacher of young children ages 5 and 6. They are so great and so sweet.
