Hi I'm Glendalee

I have a fabulous husband and 12 adorable children. I have been a dental assistant since the age of 14. I just retired .

About Me

I came from an unusual background, My mother was 14 when I was born and, then I was passed from family member to family member until I found a wonderful family that took me in and taught me great principles to live by. Because of my background, I wanted my own family to have a strong foundation. I believed that this would be accomplished by being married to a fabulous man and being rooted in strong bonds of love and affection. I have found the wonderful companion and am working each day on building the bonds of love. Our family is spread across the United States, and continues to grow. I now have almost 31 grandchildren, who bless my life each day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that in this church, I am nurtured by the gospel of Jesus Christ and am able to in turn nurture others and serve them and be served by them as the Savior did so many years ago. We have a living Prophet to lead us and to provide instruction that the Lord would teach us if he were among us. I love my fellow man and want to learn to minister as the Savior did. I hope to be able to serve and nurture many others in any way I can until the end of my time on earth. I love the scripture that says: "Men are that they might have Joy", (2 Nephi 2:25) The Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me so much joy in my life. I have a wonderful companion, fabulous children, great friends and a place to go to find peace and love. I have been taught and try to understand the things that I must do to return to my Heavenly Father. There are many in the world who have not been taught the truth and don't know how to find peace and happiness in this life. It is my hope to be able to serve a mission to help others and to serve them as the Savior would want me to. We are all God's children and He loves us. He loves us to much, he sent someone to help show the way. Jesus Christ is the way...If we follow Him, we will sit down together in Heaven when this life is finished. I really do love the Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

In my church I have worked mostly with the young women of my congregation. I have mentored them thru some hard spots in their lives. and continually tried to stress the importance of family and getting a well balanced education. It has been my joy to visit some of the people in my congregation in a watch-care situation. To visit them each month and see that they are not in any need, and to help them in any way that I can. One time I visited a handicapped woman, and when she expressed a desire to redo a bedroom into a room that she could rent out, we had a lot of fun working together to renovate and make a beautiful room I like to sew and made draperies and she helped to hem them and also to paint the room. I felt that by helping her to help herself that it really built her self esteem.. I love getting to use any skills I have to help others. My husband and I have just retired and now plan to serve a mission for 23 months. We are really excited to go and do whatever our Heavenly Father would like us to do to serve any brothers and sisters in the world.
