Hi I'm Terry

I spent 7 years searching for a church that was right for me. The search is over. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married, but have no children, just dogs. My husband and I gave-up working in the corporate and government worlds for life as estate caretakers. We have spent the last 21 years getting paid to live on beautiful estates around the United States in exchange for keeping them looking their best. It's a wonderful life.

Why I am a Mormon

From the time I was a little child, I always felt very close to God. My family didn't practice any religion, (though we were Christian), and I felt it was right to have a religion in my life, so, from the time I was about five-years-old, I had my parents take me to any church I wanted to visit, or I'd go with friends to their churches. Try as I might, though, nothing ever felt right to me. I didn't really know what I was looking for, or that I was even looking for anything in-particular, but I knew I'd know when I had found it--whatever "it" was. Finally, after 7 years of searching, I decided to check-out the church at the end of my street and, immediately upon walking in, I felt like I was "home". It was The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That was over 41 years ago and I have never looked back. Every day has taught me more about the God I always felt so close to, and His love for me as His child.

How I live my faith

I help run the Family History Library in our town, teaching others to find their long-lost ancestors through genealogy. It is fun to see the excitement in others as they find and love generations of family they never knew about before. I also share my faith through singing about the Savior as a soloist or in duets. Most of all, I share my love for God by living as a good person, the way He has taught me to, and being a friend to everyone.

What is being a Mormon like?

Terry
It is a comfortable feeling to know what God really expects of us. As Mormons, we are encouraged to always be learning by studying the scriptures and words of the prophets. We do this for our own benefit. If we have questions, we know how and where to find the answers. Also, we serve others. We believe that when we are serving our fellow man, we are serving God. But besides this, we have a good time together. There is always something to do with other families, children, teens, women, men, and for every interest. We believe in love and laughter, and lots of it. Show more Show less
