Hi I'm Betty

I have lived in Utah all my life. I have a wonderful husband, children and grandchildren. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I became a substitute teacher after raising my 7 children. I am now retired. My husband and (especially) I, enjoy going on cruises.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was baptized a member when I was 8 years old. My parents taught me the gospel and took me to church regularly. I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ true church here upon the earth today. This church is lead by living prophets and apostles. The Prophet and President of the Church today is President Thomas S. Monson. I know as we follow the Prophet our path will lead us back to our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. As we give children rules to follow because we love them and want them to be happy, successful and protected, Our Heavenly Father and Jesus have given us commandments and ask us to do certain things. Following the commandments of God and doing what he asks of us will bring us blessings, peace and happiness. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each one of us so very much. Jesus is our Savior and Redeemer. With out His Atonement we would be lost and unable to return to our Father in Heaven. I am so thankful that because of the atonement of Jesus Christ I can repent of my sins and mistakes and be forgiven. As long as I continue to to do what is right and repent when I make mistakes, I will be able to return and live with God and Christ again. I know God hears and answers our prayers. He has given us scriptures to read to learn about the Savior. The Book of Mormon and the Bible. Joesph Smith was a true prophet of God who did see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, who God used to restore Christ true church in it's fullness here upon the earth and to translate the Book of Mormon. I also know that through temple blessings husbands and wives along with there children can be eternal family's. May God Bless you and yours.

How I live my faith

Besides just loving the people in my ward, I visit other adult sister members in there homes each month. This is called Visiting Teaching. Another sister from my ward is my companion. We go together to make these visit. We take a spiritual message to them, visit with them to see how they are and if they are in need of any thing. We give them our love and friendship. We also like to remember special days for them such as birthdays, and holidays etc.
