Hi I'm Connie

I grew up all across the nation and ended up in Washington state. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've raised three children and have three (almost four) grandsons. Being a Grandmother is a great experience after raising my wonderful children. I love spending time with family, friends and enjoy serving others in need.

Why I am a Mormon

My earliest memories are loving the Lord and keeping his commandments. I loved the feeling when attending the LDS church. While my family didn't attend often, once I became a teenager I felt the tuggings of wanting to attend the LDS church. My friends belonged to other Faiths and I attended their churches as well. I found that the LDS church gave me a feeling unlike the other churches and I've gained great strength in being an active member. For some reason, my life has been filled with losing very close loved ones to death. When I was 18 years old, my Mother died of Liver Cancer. After being married to my high school sweetheart for almost 5 years he passed away from Leukemia leaving me widowed with two small children. Just four years ago I lost another husband to Pancreatic cancer leaving my two children that he helped me raise and our daughter that we had together. I don't know how I could have found the needed strength to walk such roads of heartache and grief without my beliefs and testimony of the Godhead. I've drawn close to the Godhead through my trials and have found strength beyond my own.

How I live my faith

Since my early adulthood I've loved doing family history research and helping others find their family. It is a great way to feel grounded and appreciate your very own personal history of what others have done to pave the way for you at this time. Currently, I am serving in ways to help strengthen home and families through the women in my congregation.
