Hi I'm Bonnie

I love life and learning. I am happy to be a Mormon.

About Me

I have been involved in facilitating a parenting class called "Parenting with Love and Logic." I enjoy learning and improving my parenting skills because I value my relationship with my children. I have worked in the office of an elementary school for 15 years and love children and their enthusiasm for life and learning. I enjoy gardening, cross stitch, and being with people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at age 8 but have not limited my exposure to the Mormon church. I have done a lot of exploring other religions through books and friends. I am convinced that there is so much good available in many places. I love being a Mormon because I have found more answers to life's questions in the church than in any other place. I have found motivation to become a better person than I would have been without the gospel in my life. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught in the Mormon church. It agrees with what I have studied of the life of Christ in the Bible. I also love the second testament of Jesus Christ found in the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It has changed my life and given me peace and direction. I know God wants to help us and does so by a living prophet today. I know He answers prayer and will guide any honest seeker of truth to find and recognize the truth.

How I live my faith

I am currently working with the youth in the sports program. It is great for them to learn skills and how to work together as a team. I love the quality of the youth that I work with. They are kind and considerate and so engaged in life and learning. I have been involved in the community through parent teacher associations and taught a class for parents at the school. I love getting to know other parents and their challenges and sharing ideas. I have found that everyone I meet is trying hard to do the best they can for their children. I love exchanging experiences and finding solutions. I enjoy playing the organ for church meetings. I love music and find it a great way to worship and feel my Heavenly Father's love.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

I love the temple because it helps me put my life in perspective and understand my purpose on earth. It brings me peace and is a place where I feel the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ and the love of my Heavenly Father for me personally. When I feel Their love for me it is easier to love my family and all people. Show more Show less
