Hi I'm Patty

I was raised on a farm in Idaho with 5 sisters and 2 brothers. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My husband and I have welcomed 1 daughter and 3 sons into our family. We love hiking, exploring the Alaska coastline, and fishing for salmon and halibut.

Why I am a Mormon

Many years ago I decided to accept Moroni (an early prophet of the Americas) challenge to read The Book of Mormon and then to ask God if the things that I had read were true. Through the power of the Holy Ghost, I received a clear answer that The Book of Mormon has been translated from ancient records, that Jesus Christ's Church has been restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and that the Saviors church will always be led by a living prophet. I love and support President Thomas S. Monson as our prophet on the earth today.

How I live my faith

My husband and I supported our 4 children as they faithfully served missions for our church. We want our grandchildren to know that we are a missionary family. After many years of teaching students in the public education system, my husband and I have retired so that we can continue the missionary tradition in our family.
