Hi I'm Henrietta Angell

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. Live in Denare Beach, Saskatchewan. Love baking and cooking. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Henrietta. I was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. My parents immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1955. I grew up loving my Dutch Heritage. I can understand Dutch completely, but can only speak a few words. My Dad, Grandfather, Uncle, Brothers etc. were all bakers. My Dad was also a cook in the army. Therefore, at an early age I held an appreciation for the culinary arts, and later received my Red Seal in cooking as well as working in several bakeries. Mom and Dad were great examples for me as a child. They were very hard workers and always treated others with kindness. My mom always told us kids to think before we spoke, so that we wouldn't hurt anybody's feelings. I was married for the first time when I was very young. We had a wonderful son. My son is now married to a great girl. And I have two adorable grand daughters. I am remarried to a wonderful man. We have two very special daughters. We live at the lake. We enjoy the outdoors , quiet walks, fishing and wild ricing. I love my family and am truly blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with a Christian back ground. My parents were not allowed to date or Marry any one who wasn't of their faith. At an early age I felt the Spirit, (a wonderful Spirit) at times, especially on Sundays. But as I grew up and went through my life, I didn't feel that spirit as much and I had many questions. As years passed, I watched a variety of religious programming on t.v. and attended different churches. After separating from my first husband I really began to look for answers pertaining to God. I had taken a job working for my family in their bakery. And one day as I stood frying donuts, I said a prayer asking God to help me to find the true religion. About two weeks later I met my husband, who had returned from a mission the year before. While getting to know him, he mentioned different things to me about his beliefs. Over time I realized that they were answers to my questions. I took the Missionary Discussions and have been in the Church for quite a few years now.

How I live my faith

I live my life by choosing to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ: how he would live his life, and what he would do in different situations. I try to teach my children gospel principles: to always be good and kind to others, to choose the right way. It is comforting to know that we are never alone; if we but ask our prayers will be answered. I have served in different areas of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I've learned so much from them. And I've loved serving in all capacities. As individuals we know that our spirits were at one time in Heaven with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. We believe that we are all Brothers and Sisters who are being tested on earth and being given the opportunity to one day live with our Heavenly Father once again. It is a privilege to serve and help others, so that we may all return home one day. I have no doubt that this Church is true.
