Hi I'm Rosa Claire

I am the oldest of six children. I have lived in four states. I crochet and sew. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mormon. I am working full time right now as a computer tech, to save up money to be able to pay for a mission for the church. I plan to leave in the fall of this year. I love to read fantasy stories, and to write my own now and then. I enjoy sewing clothes for myself and family members, and I completed a Halloween costume in two days this past fall. I also crochet, and I have made several baby blankets and plenty of hats for people in my ward, family and friends. I spend a lot of time with my family, and love all of them very much. We have a lot of fun together and are close.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members, and I was raised in the church. When I turned eight, my dad sat me down and asked me if I wanted to be baptized. He explained the difference between 'believing' the Gospel was true, and 'knowing' it was true. I thought about that, and I remember saying, "No Dad, I know this Gospel is true. I want to be baptized." And I was. I struggled for many years as a teen, through temptations and trials. I learned how to rely on the Lord and to listen to the Holy Ghost, and over came those struggles by remembering that I knew, and still know, that this Gospel is true. I pray every day for the Lord to be with, and look for people to serve and show them the Lord's love through my actions. I am thankful for the knowledge that I have and strive to learn more and to do better each day and to have my testimony grow. I am grateful for the trials I have had and hope that I can be an example to others.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. I go to my required meetings, and serve my ward in any calling asked of me. I spent two years teaching children on Sunday, teaching a class of eight year olds, then a class of three year olds. I openly talk about my religion in my work and school places. I jump at any chances to serve the community through the church, and enjoy serving my community when in need. I love going out with the Sister Missionaries in our area now and sharing my testimony with the people they are teaching.
