Hi I'm Pat

I'm a Mormon I have 21 grandchildren. Being a Mormon brings me happiness and peace. I try to live an example of love for others

About Me

I'm the mother of 7 children. My girls and I do GNO's often. My favorite time is visiting our children who live in Montana and Southern Utah. The other children live close and come to dinner each month. Their favorite part is lighting the fireplace and sitting on the hearth for warmth. They play games at the dining table and laugh. It's a blessing to have a family where love abounds. They bring my husband and me joy and great comfort. They serve each other and keep in contact with each other. Love is what we taught and now our children teach it to their children.

Why I am a Mormon

. My mother encouraged me to sign up for a seminary, which I did. One day our instructor decided to hold a Testimony meeting and invited our class President to begin with his testimony. His first words were ‘I know the gospel is true’. They burned in my bosom. It was a new feeling, but i understood what that feeling meant. Even though I now knew I too had a testimony, I had no idea of the changes it would bring to my life. As I learned more about the church my testimony grew, I became more intent on following what I knew to be true. I have never been sorry. I see others struggle for answers in life, but t I find answers in prayer and the lifestyle of a Mormon keeps me safe from the evil designs of vices that destroy the body, the mind, personal peace and most of all, our eternal family. Our little children sing a song about family. "I have a family hear on earth, they are so good to me. I want to spend my life with them through all eternity." "While I am in my early years I'll prepare most carefully, So I can marry in God's temple for eternity." "Fam'lies can be together forever, Through Heav'nly Father's plan. I always want to be with my own family, And the Lord has shown me how I can. The Lord has shown me how I can.

How I live my faith

Currently my husband and I serve in a senior center three times a week. we have done this for three and a half years. We have all denominations come to our meetings. They feel at home and enjoy the love we have for them. If they need help we are there. Once a month we take them to the Temple where they can do work for their dead ancestors or they do the work for others who cant come to the Temple. We have Sunday school lessons Wednesday and every Monday we have a family come to bring different forms of entertainment. Last night we brought ice cream bars and pop corn to eat while watching old "I Love Lucy", shows. They may be old but we believe that age should not be a barrier. I love the stories of their lives. It's time to move on and learn more. My husband and I got a letter January, 2, 2015, from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints asking us to go to the Tokosuka Fleet Military Installation in the Tokyo Japan South Mission and serve for eighteen months. We will now move on to another position to serve in. New experiences are always good and keep us growing. We are excited. No matter where we serve. people are the same and God loves us equally. He sends the willing to help bring all his children to Jesus Christ. It's the old saying that I love "It doesn't matter where you serve it matters that you serve.
