Hi I'm Rosie

I'm a Mormon. I live in Wyoming. I've been a teacher for 13 years. Now I'm taking courses to be a translator.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho. I'm the oldest of sis kids. I was a shy girl. I came out of my shell as I got into sports. During my four years of high school I participated on the school teams of volleyball, basketball and track. My senior year I ran cross country while playing on the volleyball team. I was able to practice volleyball then be coached in cross country after volleyball practice that year. It was a pleasure doing both sports simultanneosly. I was able to medal at the state cross country race. After graduating from high school I attended a college for two years then served a full time LDS mission. I finished my B.S. at a University when I returned from my mission. I earned a teaching degree. I've taught Spanish for 13 years. Among those 13years I've ao taught P.E. and Art. It wasn't until I was in my thirties that I met my husband. I was 35 the year we were married. We've been married for five years, now we re working on year six. Still no children. But, we are trying to adopt.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I learned about the church at a young age and when I turned 8 years old I knew I wanted to be baptized to follow the example of my Savior Jesus Christ. My dad baptized and confirmed me. I enjoyed attending primary school when I was young. My teenage years I enjoyed the Young Women's program. When I was old enough to go to Relief Society I was pleased to go. I attended sacrament meeting and my other classes regularly. By doing so and trying to live the principles of the gospel and studying the scriptures my testimony of the gospel grew precept upon precept. I read the Book of Mormon (more than once), the Bible (New and Old Testaments), Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price by the time I graduated from high school. My testimony of Jesus Christ and what He did for me grew every day. I know the scriptures are true. Both the Bible and the Book of Mormon have strengthened my beliefs and convictions. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and it was throuh him that the Lord restored his Church. I know that the Prophet of the church is guiding the church as Jesus would have him do, for he is His prophet in these days. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that He did for me. He resurrected on the third day after he was crucified. And because of His sacrific I can be forgiven for my sins as long as I repent, and I will be resurrected as well. Jesus' resurrection made it possible for all man to be resurrected. He is the perfect example of how to live. What I love most is that anyone that wants to know if the principles of the gospel are true they may know for themselves. I'm far from perfect myself and He still answers my prayers. Maybe not how I always want or expect but He does hear and answer them daily.

How I live my faith

I am currently a primary teacher for the five year olds in my ward. Previously to being a primary teacher I was the Relief Society president (Relief Society is the women's organization of the Church). Before that I work with the Young Women's program (the program for girls 12 to 18). I'm a visiting teacher and try to meet and care or other women of the ward. I try to attend church every week. Whether I am at home or visiting family I feel best and need the spiritual rejuvenation that comes from attending church. I try not to spend money on Sunday and avoid recreational activities on the Sabbath. I try instead to do Sunday appropriate activities like study the scriptures, attend church, visit with others and family. A nap is something I love to take on Sunday.
