Hi I'm Pam

I'm 56 years old and, although baptized into the church at 9, wasn't truly converted until I was 35. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single woman who lives with a cat. I really enjoy good times with friends - movies, plays, going to the Temple, etc. I love to read (Jane Austen, anybody?), and I knit, crochet and tat. I am a treasure trove of, mostly useless, information on old movies, old TV shows, etc. But I really enjoy these because I can watch them and not have to flinch at language or situations I just don't want to witness. I have one brother who is a sports editor on a small paper in Oklahoma. Both our parents have died - mom from cancer at age 55, and my dad from cancer at age 65. Dad actually deserted us when we were kids so were never close to him, but a few years before his death we were able to reconnect on a friendly level, and both my brother and I visited him for several days a month before he died.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 9, and always had a testimony of the Savior, but I didn't do anything to really strengthen it. Therefore, when problems came along in life I fell under the pressure and stopped going to church. Eventually, Heavenly Father was able to reach my heart again (through conference talks I heard), and I saw my Bishop and began the road back. I have been active now for 23 years and have had such great blessings in my life. One of the greatest was a few years ago when I was called to serve as an Ordinance Worker in the Temple. What a blessing those two years were! I hope to be able to do this again when work schedule allows it. I know this gospel is true, and Heavenly Father wants all of His children to have His glory in their lives. I hope I can be a instrument in His hands in any ways He need me to be.

How I live my faith

I have two callings in my ward. I teach a lesson to the older women once a month, and I'm also called as a Ward Missionary. As a Ward Missionary, I also teach on a rotating basis - once a week for an entire month, about every third month. I love teaching - I'm a little more intimated by the missionary part of the calling, but I know the Lord will help me as I try to do the things He needs me to do.
