About Me

We have been married for 50 years and we have 10 children and 32 grandchildren. This is very unusual in today's world. Our family is our greatest joy! We recognize that we would not have this great blessing without our faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement in our behalf. His teachings have also spared us the misery that comes when breaking His commandments. We love our life and hope that you, too, will consider learning about the Savior of the World! We are Mormons!

Why I am a Mormon

We are Mormon's because through putting our faith "to the test", we have found that it has made all the difference, in our lives. All families have trials! All families have times when they wonder if they can get through one more day. Raising children is the hardest, most heart wrenching experience that you can have. Marriage itself puts you through some hard times as well. But when you turn to the Savior, asking for His help, He is always there for you. His gospel teachings, as found in the Bible and Book of Mormon, will spare you so much pain and misery, if obeyed. He will always send the Comforter to fill your heart with Faith, Hope, Forgiveness and Love. His Commandments are blessings which, when obeyed, spare us the awful consequenses of sin. Obedience brings blessings, forgiveness brings peace, and gratitude brings joy! We have put His Gospel to the test and when we do, our lives are filled with joy.

How I live my faith

Ben, has learned Spanish because he was a missionary in Uruguay. We are both learning American Sign Language, now, because we work with Deaf members of the Church. Our children have also learned Spanish as missionaries in Mexico, Equador, and Argentina. Others have had wonderful learning opportunities by serving as missionaries in Alaska, New York and Utah. As missionaries, they also learned that prayer and scripture study are invaluable aids for the growth and experience that they will have throughout their lives. As parents, we have learned that the closer we come to our Savior through scripture study and prayer, and obedience to His Gospel, the happier our lives are! We wish that we could shout this message from the housetops so that all people, everywhere, could know the joy that we have!
