Hi I'm Holly

I am a wife, mother and grandmother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in Utah, I have spent most of my life in Southern California. I married young and my husband I have been married for 40. We raised our family and are enjoying grand-parenthood. Nothing is more important to me than my family and their happiness. I have been blessed to work with the youth for many years. My hobbies include sewing, crocheting and other home beatifying projects.

Why I am a Mormon

Although being a Mormon is all I have ever known, I've never wanted to stray or questioned my beliefs. All of the questions that some struggle with are answered for me within this Gospel, and the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that God loves me and hears my prayers. I have a testimony that this is the restored church of Jesus Christ. The very same one that He established during his lifetime. I believe that the pure truth of it and that the Priesthood of God was lost during the dark ages. Therefore requiring the need for a restoration of all things. This was accomplished when God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith. Happiness is here to be found in the Mormon Church. I thank God every day for this blessing in my life.

How I live my faith

Most of my time serving in our congregations has been with the youth between the ages of 12 to 18. These years are so important and life altering as these sweet youth are trying to decide who they are. We are always planning another exciting event as soon as the latest one is completed. It is a wonderful way to serve my brothers and sisters and our Father in Heaven.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

When you develop faith in Jesus Christ you learn to love him and see others as He does. He becomes your example and partner in all you do. You see your spouse and children, brothers and sisters, neighbors and even strangers, as precious in His sight. When you are able to do this everything takes on significance and meaning.
