Hi I'm Connie

I grew up in Fillmore, Ut, a very small town in the middle of the state. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am married to a wonderful man whom I met in Germany (both of us are from Utah). I attended and graduated from Brigham Young University. We are parents to two sons and two daughters and have six granddaughters and three grandsons. I love to knit, quilt, read, and my bucket list includes biking through Zion National Park, rappelling down the Wasatch mountains, and rafting some (sort of tame) white water rivers.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon several times. The words of our Savior guide me through the interesting challenges this life presents to me and my family. I have had a few very difficult times in my life where I simply put my trust in the Lord and He carried me through. He blessed my life and made everything work out for the best and at the same time He took some of the burden and pain so I could get through the struggles. One particularly hard thing was when one of my daughters gave birth to a baby girl at 23 1/2 weeks. She only weighed 1 lb 5 oz and was 11 inches long. She spent 6 months in a Newborn Intensive Care Unit and came home one oxygen with a feeding tube in her stomach. She still does not swallow. But she is crawling and pulling herself up to things to stand and is the most pleasant, sweet little girl. She is our "miracle". It was very touch and go before she was finally able to come home. There were many times the pain and stress were too much for me to handle on my own. My Savior always took the burden at those times, gave me strength, let me know she was going to be okay. This experience took a lot of faith and built my faith in a way nothing else could have. My Savior loves me and is mindful of me.

How I live my faith

I love my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I try very hard to please them by looking for the good in everyone I meet and saying and doing good things always. I have worked with children, teenagers, scouts, and women in our church. I am currently serving a mission for the church at Cove Fort Utah, a visitors' center.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

I recently lost my dear Daddy. He was 91 so he had lived a long (and very good) life. But I'm a "Daddy's girl" and he was an amazing father, grandfather, & patriarch. He is sorely missed by all of his posterity as well as many many friends. I was sealed to him and my Mom when they were married in the Manti LDS Temple. I know he is in "heaven" and that I will not only see, but by with him again. This life is only Act 2 of a 3 act play. Life is eternal and we can be with our families forever, if we live worthy of that great blessing. Show more Show less
