Hi I'm Dorthy

I am a Mother, Grandmother, I love to go the the Temple and to Church, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Dorthy, and I love to go to Church and attend the Temple. I was born in Carthage Illinois, Moved away and got married, and returned to Carthage in 1972. I am the mother of 10 beautiful children, 6 Girls and 4 Boys. I have 25 Grandchildren, and 20 Great Grandchildren. I love to play Domino's, and do Family Genealogy work for my ancestors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was first introduced to the church by two missionaries who showed up at my door. They asked if I would like to know more about the church and I said "Yes." It felt like it was the true church. In April of 1962 I was baptized. I did not know at the time that my husband was already a member of the church. He never mentioned it until after after I was baptized. He became active again after I was baptized. As far as I knew I was the only one that was a Mormon. In 1967 I was married in the Salt Lake City Temple. We drove clear to Utah to do the marriage because there was not a Temple close by. I have attended the temple regularly ever since. I am grateful to be a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I currently serve in our ward as the Librarian. I enjoy working with all the members in the ward, and getting them the material they need to teach and help others learn in the gospel. I keep my faith strong by going to church and praying. I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers.
