Hi I'm Paulette

I am a Mormon. I am considered a "convert" since I was baptized at the age of 9 years.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of nine children, having raised 8 of those children. Even though I live in the same home town now we lived for almost 40 years in other parts of the country.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother was a member of the Church from the age of 16. She took my brothers, sister & I to the Church from an early age. I was the oldest of the six. Then my father and I were baptized on the same day when I was 9 yrs old. I continue to be a Mormon because I know without a doubt the standards taught me while growing up have given me the greatest happiness I could ever have in this life. It has brought me closer to my Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My husband was in the Military and he traveled away from home for weeks or months at a time. When he was home we were high school & church officials for basketball, volleyball, softball & baseball. We have worked with "kids" from 12 to 31 for the majority of our lives. Teaching them in Sunday School, Young Women's & going on camping trips and other activities with them. We have served two missions for the Church as "Military Relations" Missionaries. Working with & teaching the Military families and the Young Single Adults.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Too many people today believe the Word of Wisdom hinders their "freedom" to do as they please, to have fun. I know without the Word of Wisdom I would have more problems in finances, home and family. It is by keeping this commandment that I am free from all the other problems drugs, alcohol, tobacco, tea and coffee bring to someone that uses these things. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings a happiness into my life that cannot be found in the world at large. My life is simple without the hang-ups of the world. Show more Show less
