Hi I'm Joan

I taught special education, am the mother of four grown children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have raised 4 children and have been a special education teacher for many years. I am retired now and enjoy traveling, sewing, reading, family history work, and visiting my grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

When my husband and I were newlyweds living in Greenbrae, California, we met some young couples in our apartment complex who taught us about the church. We had been Protestants before, but were so impressed with the importance the church placed on families, that we wanted to learn more. They taught us so much about the church and it's beliefs that rang true to us, and we felt the Spirit testify of it's truth. We returned to Michigan after our military commitment was completed and found members in the home town we returned to. My husband's work has required many moves, but we have always found a home and friends in the various wards and branches we have lived in. The church's teaching have helped us raise our children and we have now been to the baptisms of our grandchildren.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is something I do all the time. I try to always be an example of what being LDS is all about. We are active in our community and others are aware that we members of the Mormon faith. I have probably held every position that is possible to have in the church over the years. I've been a Relief Society president, Young Women's president, Primary president, and have taught Gospel Doctine.
