Hi I'm Maxine

I'm a retired school bus driver in Nevada and headed on a senior's mission with my husband to South Dakota and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a empty nester. Our 3 boys have their own families now. I love being a Grammy. I worked for most of our married life as a school bus driver and retired this year. It will seem weird not to go back to school this fall. My husband and I are headed on a senior's mission to South Dakota, Rapid City Mission for 23 months. We are excited for this opportunity to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of our church when I was born so that means I was born in the covenant. I gained a testimony of our church when I was a teenager when I read the Book of Mormon and prayed if it was true. My answer was a good warm feeling of being loved. I knew it was true. I love going to church on Sundays and learning about our Savior Jesus Christ. I love seeing my friends there. I'm so thankful for our Savior. I'm thankful that he died for all of us that we might repent and be forgiven of our sins. I'm so blessed by keeping covenants that I've made to my Heavenly Father. I'm thankful for Eternal families. I love my family. I know that we can be together forever if we keep the commandments of the Lord. I'm thankful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints.

How I live my faith

I've always been active in the ward we have lived in. I love visiting the sisters each month and sharing the gospel with them. My parents were great examples to me on serving one another. I hope I've instilled this with our sons and that they teach their children the love of serving one another.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Maxine
We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by studying and reading the scriptures. Also by praying to Heavenly Father about the things that you've read, to know if they are true. You will feel the spirit of the Holy Ghost witness to you. We also can be of service to those around us and that will strengthen us. We can go to church every Sunday and partake of the sacrament and renew the covenants that we've made with our Father in Heaven. Show more Show less
