Hi I'm Stephanie

I'm a wife, mum and granny. I keep chickens. I love doing crafts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to Neil and have four children, five grandchildren and five chickens.My mother-in-law lives with us and I spend a fair amount of my time looking after her. In my "spare time" I like to sew, crochet, do Pyrography and am always ready to try a new craft.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church before I was born. My father used to be in the British Merchant Navy and on one occasion met a group of young LDS men returning to the United States by ship after having served missions in the United Kingdom. They were laughing and enjoying themselves, but, my Dad noticed, not drinking any alcohol. He asked them about this and they gave him a brief summary of their religious beliefs. He mentally filed that under “interesting but not for him” and continued his work. Some years later, now married and no longer in the Navy, he was at a loss to be able to comfort his wife following the death of her mother. One wet miserable day, two Mormon missionaries knocked on their door. Recognising the emblem on the cover of the Book of Mormon they held out to him, he remembered the message he had been given by the young missionaries on his ship. He knew that this was the message that my mother needed to hear to help her at this difficult time in her life. After being taught the gospel by the missionaries they were both baptised. I was born some years later and they taught the gospel to my bothers and I. As a child I accepted their belief and gradually, over the years, came to know for myself the truth of what I had been taught. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My faith is very much a part of my everyday life. It influences what I do and the choices I make. I love to study the scriptures and teach a class of youth daily in our church's Seminary programme. Somedays we meet early morning before school, and a couple of days we meet in the evening.
