Hi I'm Ruth Tedone

I grew up in Canada. I'm a caregiver. I'm a great-grandmother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an avid reader, my favorite books are Christian romances and mysteries. I worked in the food service field for 50 years. I have been a caregiver for 11 years. I am enrolling in college computer courses. I love doing family history work! And I LOVE the Book of Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

When the missionaries introduced me to the Book of Mormon, I knew it was true. That was 35 years ago. I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ because it makes me happy! I have seen many blessings come from living a clean life. It has blessed my large family more than anything else!

How I live my faith

I go and visit many of the sisters in the ward I attend on a regular basis. I volunteer with the Brain Injury Connection. I attend church services and activities every week. I enjoy doing missionary work for the church.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Ruth Tedone
When I learned about the health code that the Mormon religion practices I decided to follow the counsel given. When I quit drinking coffee my migraines ceased. I used to have them every week for years! I know that this law is given to BLESS our lives- and I'm grateful to be living by it! Show more Show less
