Hi I'm Merri Lou

I am a travel agent. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy making bread and sharing it with my neighbors. I love doing things with my grandchildren. I am a full time travel agent but can always find time for my family. My husband and I enjoy gardening. I love harvest time. I preserve a lot of the produce and we give some away to our neighbors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been an active Mormon since I was 5 years old when my parents joined the church many years ago. Throughout my life my faith has sustained me through may trials. I know that when I am having a hard time or just a very bad day I can pray to my Father in Heaven and I will feel better soon. My faith is everything to me. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My husband and I are part time missionaries. We visit families in our neighborhood and help where we can. We talk to them about our faith and share with them our love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. My husband and I grow a vegetable garden in the summer. We love to share our harvest with our neighbors. This year we harvested 40 quite large banana squash. It was fun to watch the expression on faces when they would open their door to find my husband standing there with a very large banana squash for them. I believe it is by sharing the good things we have been blessed with that brings neighbors close together.
