Hi I'm Dawn

I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life revolves around my family. I have 5 children and 7 (and counting!) grandchildren. I have 3 married children and I love traveling to visit with them. My husband and I enjoy spending time together outdoors. I enjoy taking pictures of nature and my family. I sing, play the piano, and enjoy all kinds of music.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 13 years old the missionaries came to our house to teach my parents. I was listening too, and when they began to teach about the Book of Mormon and what is was, something inside me stirred and I knew that it was the word of God. Since that time I have read the Book of Mormon many times. It brings me closer to Christ, along with the Bible. It makes me feel good inside... peaceful. As I've gone through life and had questions, no matter what the question, I've always been able to find answers and solace from the Mormon church. It has never failed to satisfy my need for understanding and enlightenment as to things pertaining to God and God's plan for us, His children. I love the church's emphasis on family and the importance of family. I know with all of my heart that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I cannot deny it because of the way it has touched my life so deeply. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins and that He loves us and desires us to be happy. He has given us His commandments not to restrict us or to hold us back but, rather, to help us to be happy in life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life with Christ as my example. I want to emulate Him in word and deed by the choices I make each day. It is really our choices that make us who we are and determine our happiness in life.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I knew that Mormonism was true when I learned about and read The Book of Mormon. I have prayed and asked and I have felt feelings of inspiration that gave me such peace that I cannot deny it. Show more Show less
