Hi I'm Bobbi-Dawn

I'm a convert to the church. I'm the mother of 8, still married to my best friend. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom for more than 30 years. I was involved with volunteering at my kids schools so much that I told the principal I needed a shelf for my pillow and blanket. I loved helping there and getting to know all the parents, kids and teachers. I learned to quilt when I was expecting my 6th child and it has been my passion. I love to read and belong to a book club. I am not a musical person but love that most of my children are. I love listening to them practice and perform. Although I don't understand most sports, when I get the opportunity, I love going to games and whooping and hollering for my team. I loathe shopping and appreciate that my husband loves it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptised when I was 14. I always believed the story about Joseph Smith seeing Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It just made sense to me. I have never had any one defining moment that converted me to the gospel. My testimony has grown slowly and steadily over the years by serving in callings and living the gospel every day. I try to follow the commandments and try to be a better person than I was the day before. As I said, I help out where I can. Serving others helps me feel closer to the Savior. I know my Savior Loves me and that gives me comfort and strength.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the achievement day leader in my ward. Which means on Sundays I teach the 8-11 year old girls and twice a month, during the week, we have an activity where I try to help them develop and strengthen their Faith in God. I love the girls and spending time with them. I love to do service and help out where I can. Once a month I have a ladies luncheon in my home where we can get together and talk and spend time getting to know one another better, because there is never enough time on Sundays. I love feeding the missionaries when I can and having them in our home.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

no. We try to help who ever needs help. We want to be involved in our communities. Every year in our ward, we collect food for our local food bank. We used to hold blood donor clinics in our building every couple of months. Members help by donating to the Church's humanitarian fund, which sends aid all over the world. When and where possible we help out physically. My family tries to help our neighbours shovel snow in the winter and rake leaves in the fall. Show more Show less
