Hi I'm Louise Johnson Down

I grew up in Rosemere Quebec north of Montreal. I am a nutritionist and mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of girls and a grandmother. Although not all my children and grandchildren are close, I love to keep in tp=ouch with them through electronic media. I work with the young women at church. This helps to keep me feeling young and in touch with the world. I work at a university doing nutrition research in Canada and the Caribbean. I love to read all kinds of books. I love to travel, my husband and I just recently had the opportunity to travel to Israel and Egypt and that was a wonderful experience! I try to keep fit by exercising regularly and eating healthy food.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I am convert to the church. I gained a testimony by reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it. Although I had no intention of joining the church while I was doing this, I felt that I needed to be baptized. The feeling I had at the time was one of peace. Over the years, that feeling has been repeated as I learned more of the doctrine and history of the church.

How I live my faith

I work with the adolescents at church. I teach them about the Lord and Sundays and we try to organize uplifting and worthwhile activities every Wednesday evening. The youth of our church are such good examples of spirituality and clean living in a world where it is more and more difficult to do so. I love to watch our youth interact with each other in a wholesome way. In doing this, I work with other women who inspire me and help me to guide the youth. I am a member of the largest women's organization in the world. We are a family and as such we try to help take care of each other through serving when others need us. I am assigned to visit teach some wonderful women from our ward: I am responsible to keep in contact with them, minister to them and help them in they need it. In short, I try to be their friend!
