Hi I'm Chris Dalley

I'm a reporter and love to do human interest articles. I'm also writing a novel about my great grandmother. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to read and write for the newspaper. I am a wife, mother of eight and grandmother 27 with one more on the way. We are a combined family. I had four children, my husband had three and we have one together.I love to do the daily crossword puzzle and love words and their meanings. My husband and I have just been called to the Kenya Nirobi mission and we are excited and a little scared but we are willing to do our best and hope to help share the gospel and all its blessings to the people there. I hope to finish my novel about my grandmother who crossed the plains in 1857 before we leave for our mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but has a rebellious streak and a skeptical heart. I was married for 20 years and although we were married in the temple my former husband got inactive after only a few years. I thought I had to follow him so tried inactivity but knew it was not making me happy. He found a younger woman and we divorced. I then went back to the church and to the temple and met a wonderful man who was also divorced. He had three children and I had four and we have had one together. It has not been easy to blend our families and even harder to blend our very different personalities but we stuck it out and worked on our differences until now after 30 years we are so much in love and appreciate each other and our differences and are excited to serve a mission together

How I live my faith

I have finally gotten to the point in my life that I can read my scriptures each morning and record my thoughts in my scripture journal. My husband and I were just released from our callings in the Developmental Ward which consists of those wonderful people who are mentally or physically challenged. He was bishop and I was the ward historian. Now we are back in our home ward where I hve been called as ward music director which is the biggest challenge I have ever faced because I do not read music and have a hard time carrying a tune but I am trying and am just about able to look up while I lead. I am assured it will help me as we go on our mission. I love the gospel and hope the Lord will continue to qualify me for the work he has in store for me.
