Hi I'm Margaret

I grew up in Utah. I have lived most of my life in Salt Lake City. I am the mother or four sons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Church. My parents were always very active and instilled in me the desire to stay close to my Heavenly Father and keep His commandments. One of my greatest achievements is my temple marriage and sealing. We now have four fine sons who all are active in the Church, married in the temple, and successful in their careers. For 22 years I worked as a secretary in an elementary school. It gave me a great opportunity to associate with children and be a part of their growing-up experience. I treasure the friends I made through those years. Now I am about to serve as a missionary and I am excited for the opportunities that await me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. The Plan of Salvation offers so much hope for this life and for the life to come. The fact that families can be together forever brings peace and joy to my life. The knowledge that I can continue my association with family members who have passed on is such a blessing. I know I have a loving Heavenly Father who watches over me and blesses me every day. I know through the Atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ, that I can return and live with my Heavenly Father and all of my family when this life is finished. I feel peace and happiness every day.

How I live my faith

I have been an ordinance worker in the temple for almost 10 years. I love the opportunity to share in this sacred work. It is such a blessing to see the happiness that others experience in receiving eternal ordinances for themselves and in providing those ordinances for those who are on the other side of the veil. It is such a thrill to participate in sealing families together forever. My testimony of the Plan of Salvation has increased and I love learning more about the Savior every time I am in the temple.
