Hi I'm Elaine

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three and a grandmother of 7 and my family are my greatest joy. I work as an Administrative Assistant in a primary school and love my job.

Why I am a Mormon

In 1958 my parents invited two young Mormon missionaries into their home. My mother always attended our local Church of Scotland so was interested in what these young men had to say. They visited with them for two weeks, my parents knew what these young men were saying was true and they joined the church. I was born three years later and was brought up with the teaching of the church. I have always loved the gospel and have brought up my children using the same principles of the gospel and now my children are also raising their children in the church. I am so grateful for those two missionaries who knocked on my parents door more than 50 years ago.

How I live my faith

I currently teach a weekly class of 14 - 17 year olds. They study the scriptures and this year we are studying the New Testament. I am always amazed by the strength of young people, their capacity to listen and be taught, and how much they teach each other and how much I learn from them.
