Hi I'm Margaret Canham

I like The Osmonds, making jewelry and cards and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i was born and brought up in London, lived here ever since, a true Londoner. I attended boarding school in Westminster after my father passed away, and i feel that the love of my family has helped me a lot, I had a very sheltered life as a child. During the week i go to numerous classes which are for over 50's, i meet a lot of people there and it is where I learned to make cards and jewelry. I like to take my dog Joseph for walks four times a day, he loves running around in the park, and he loves people coming round from church.

Why I am a Mormon

At the age of 15, I saw a beautiful church, later found out it was the hyde park chapel and wanted to attend but felt I was still too young to join. One weekend, coming home from boarding school, I asked my mum how to get to exhibition road (where the church is), she asked me why, and I told her I would tell her one day. At that time, I felt difficult to explain to my Mum how I felt about Christ and this religion as I was brought up in Catholic faith. Since then I attended church regularly. It felt really good, eventually after 7 years, i got baptized. At the beginning, accepting Joseph Smith was a stumbling block as I was catholic, and didn't believe in modern day prophet. But after reading the Book of Mormon, also the Osmonds are my cousins, with much encouragement, I soon realised this was true.

How I live my faith

I love reading the book of Mormon and serving others in the church and out of the church. I really believe the church is a place of refuge. Whenever i feel upset, or emotionally troubled, I know there are people to seek for guidance and support in the church. And I am glad other people will also come to me when they need someone to speak to. Just like Christ would comfort everyone, He also uses us to comfort others. I know the church is true and Christ is the head of the church. And I also know that we have a true prophet here on the earth today and that he teaches us God's words for our guidance today.
