Hi I'm Retta

I am a mother and grandmother. I am a mormon

About Me

I love create useful and beautiful quilts. I dabble in oil and watercolor painting. I garden both vegetable and flowers. My husband makes me play tennis, some days I am good some I play terrible I have 22 grandchildren and love being their grandma.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a great heritage of mormon pioneers in my ancestry so have been raised a Mormon. the scrafices that my ancestors made to live the mormon religion were many and their stories inspire me. I have also been converted by reading the book of Mormon and praying to my Father in Heaven who has answered my prayers as to the truth of the Book of Mormon. The spirit testifies to me as I read and hear these truths.The Gospel of Jesus Christ means a great deal to me and I spend my time and efforts in trying to follow his truth and be more like him.

How I live my faith

I serve my church by teaching the 3 year olds and organinzing ward (church)events.I love visiting women in my church each month and have a great love for them. I am about to fill a 18 month mission with my husband. we leave soon to help people learn of Christ. update We have returned from our mission where we served in the Richmond Virginia mission in a small town called Farmville. We loved serving the people there .

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No , but when you love the Lord you want others to find the joy that you feel in living a life centered on Him. You want to give your time and effort to helping others.Because I have been given much I too must give. Show more Show less
