Hi I'm Belinda

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am married to my best friend and a great man. I am a mother of five wonderful children and have 3 grandchildren. I was a stay at home mother for 25 years. After going through 3 years of unemployment and having a son desiring to go on a mission. I recently joined the employment field with the Lords help. I found a job working in the school nutrition services so I can still have the same schedule as my children who are still home. I love being a mom, and grandma. I love going on walks or curling up on rainy days and reading a good book. I love studing the scriptures and learning from my Heavenly Father every day. It helps during those difficult times.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church. While still having to test out the things my parents taught me. I gained a testimony for myself of the reality that I have a loving Heavenly Father and I have a older brother my Savior Jesus Christ who loves me. I have felt of their love as I have turned to them daily with my struggles and gratitude to them each day. I can't imagine life with out this knowledge. I think I would have given up a long time ago. Life can be very challenging and even discouraging. But having a knowledge and feeling the presence of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in my life keeps me going.

How I live my faith

I look forward to going to church each week, to rub shoulders with good people who desire to follow our Savior Jesus Christ. I love working with the ladies of our ward right now. I'm the secretary of our women's group. I help keep records, and make sure to help with visits of the ladies of our ward that we haven't seen for a while or maybe in need of some love. It nice to have so many friends I get see each week.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

As I study the scriptures, I feel closer to God. It helps me feel at peace as I go through my day. I love learning something new each day. I usually do too, something usually stands out to me. It helps me feel happy and it helps me understand and remember why I am here trying to live my life here on this earth each day. My whole desire is to return and live with Father in Heaven again when it is my time to leave this earth. Reading my scriptures helps me to not get side track from that goal. Show more Show less
