Hi I'm Peggy

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I'm a Mormon and love the value I feel at being a Mother.

About Me

I have 7 wonderful children and love being a Mom. When I am around people who share their great accomplishments in the World’s view, I remember that I have raised children to be loving parents and responsible adults! Life has not been easy for me. I was divorced after 25 years of marriage and then remarried and sealed to a wonderful man who died 4 years later. I learned that no matter how difficult life is and how many dreams die, Heavenly Father is always there. He never leaves you alone.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the Gospel as Jesus taught is what truly converted Mormons do. I grew up asking myself “What would Jesus do”? As I have learned about His life and done my best to follow Him I have been blessed to feel a light in my soul that I am a true daughter of God. Loving and learning about other people and other faiths I have come to understand how many good and wonderful people there are in this world. I am happy to share how much sense it makes to live following the teaching of Christ.

How I live my faith

In my life I have actually felt it most important to live my testimony. Being a hypocrite is something that I have endeavored to avoid at all costs. I have seen too much of it and determined not to be one. I have a burning testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. To me it’s not just a book; it is solid proof that Heavenly Father loves us. It is proof that He loves me and wants all to come to the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. Modern revelation teaches that this plan of happiness exists and is perfect! I have served in many callings in the Church. Some were very scary as I was unsure of myself as a leader. Knowing that I had been called by Heavenly Father, I put my faith in Him and He helped me. There is no doubt in my mind that life is truly Eternal and so is progress. I know that as long as I keep trying to do my best and repent when I fall, I will always be forgiven. I know the meaning of families. That I am actually a daughter of my Heavenly Parents will live in an eternal family unit. That the love I have for my own family is everlasting and with all my heart, I desire to be with them forever! I understand that I have never lost a loved one. They simply have gone on to other work until we meet again. That their Spirits are engaged in the same spreading of the Gospel that I am. I testify that whatever storms come your way, you can face them as they are for our benefit. Our loving Father in Heaven has supported me through many! I recognize the Holy Ghost as he has been my companion and it is my determination to have him as a constant in my life!
