Hi I'm Debbie

I grew up in England, studied in London, a Mum of three and a volunteer at the London 2012 Olympics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a husband and three grown up children. I teach yoga and love what it does for people by keeping them flexible, strong and calm. I enjoy the theatre and love travelling, especially around Europe with my family. I liked being a mother and participating in activities with the children, I enjoyed being with them during the school holidays and helping them achieve in their chosen hobbies and interests.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon because I learn more about Jesus Christ and how He has a plan for me to return to live with him again and my family. I know He loves me as I strive to follow his teachings and His example. I love the teachings of the gospel and the peace and happiness I feel from following the truth. I love being part of a big family who care for each other. Being a Mormon means I strive to have a strong family who have high standards.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the faith and I see what it does for people by helping them reach their potential and brings opportunities to grow and develop. I have taught youth and served as a youth leader for many years, including organising regional girls' camps. I participated by organising conferences for youth aged 14 - 18 years and have watched these youth grow over the years and develop into wonderful, mature adults. I enjoy helping out in the community and have organised several annual events for the Church in our area called 'Helping Hands Day' where up to 300 members of our congregations have performed service for our local community. I enjoy making a difference and trying to make each day count. I have also taught a gospel study class for over five years which gave me the opportunity to study the gospel and learn more about the Saviour and how we can find happiness in this life by following his example and teachings. Watching my children live the gospel has brought me much joy as I see them make good decisions in their life.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons strive to reach out to anyone who needs help and we regularly offer service in our local communities. We have an annual day of service throughout the United Kingdon called, 'Helping Hands Day' where we provide service wherever it is needed. All ages get involved and many thousands of hours are donated in just one day alone. Show more Show less
