Hi I'm Patti Harker

I live in Alberta, Canada. I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, Pharmacist, runner and triathlete. I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 7 and a grandmother of 10, including a set of adorable twins! I enjoy music, knitting, and many types of physical activity. I love the excitement of running races and triathlons. The training keeps me motivated to keep moving. I have degenerative disc disease and arthritis, so activity is important. I work part-time as a Hospital Pharmacist.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Lord Jesus Christ. I have a deep appreciation for His atoning sacrifice for each one of us. I want to follow Him. I want to be like Him. I am so grateful to know that His Church as been restored to the earth in these latter days in its fullness, with the proper Priesthood authority. I love my family and want to be with them forever. The temple ordinances provide a way for all of us to be sealed together eternally as families. This knowledge gives me peace. It brings me joy to know that after all I can do, the Savior will take my hand and lead me safely home.

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in the Church including leading the children's organization, working with the youth, and leading the women's organization.I served a full-time mission in Italy and loved sharing the Gospel with the Italian people in their beautiful country. I currently play the organ for our Sunday Sacrament Meetings. My husband and I teach a weekly Religion class to the young adults in our area.
