Hi I'm Elizabeth

I’m a mom to 6 children, grandmother to 33 grandchildren, and great-grandmother to 28 great-grandchildren..

About Me

You can tell that I've been alive for quite a few years, eighty-three to be exact. Throughout these years I’ve seen many changes, but none of them more disturbing than the changes I’ve seen taking place in the family. The home is the bedrock of society and I hate seeing the home attacked from every side.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I have been married for sixty-five years. In no way do we want the association we’ve enjoyed with each other and with our family members to end at death, and at our age, death is not too far away. Are we frightened? No. It’s not that we are anxious to part from each other, because we’re not. But neither are we afraid of death, for death is not the end of our existence. We’ll just walk into another room, so to speak, and find all our loved ones who have already died waiting to greet us. What a joyous reunion that will be. So, if you fear death, DON'T, and if you want your family to be together forever, IT CAN. I know this is true because I’m a Mormon, (which means I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

Nowhere in this world can you find the happiness you can find in a loving, caring family. Sure it takes work, but work that is well worth while, because I know that families can be together forever. If a young man or a young woman should approach you wearing a missionary name tag saying they represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, ask them how you, too, can have an eternal family. It’s what God wants for all His children. After all, he’s our Heavenly Father. He wants all His children to enjoy their families and not just for this life, but throughout eternity. Isn’t that what you want for your family, too?

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Jesus Christ died for us and by so doing, atoned for our sins. He taught us to forgive others and in marriage and family life--if it is to be happy--one must be willing to forgive and forget. Our homes can be places where we strive to become more like our Savior. We can trust in His love for us and when problems come we can ask for and receive his help. He wants us to have happy lives and He will help us through our problems and troubles. He also loves our spouses and our children just as much as He loves us. He knows what is best for all of us and having faith and trust in him, helps each of us live up to our potential. Family life can be a wonderful experience if we strive to live the way Jesus lived. Trusting in Him helps us trust each other and be willing to help each other. Show more Show less
