Hi I'm Helen

I am a grandmother and joined the church in 1972 while attending college in Missouri.

About Me

My husband and I have 4 children and 17 grandchildren ( with 2 more coming) and are finally able to serve a mission - something we have always wanted to do together!

Why I am a Mormon

While I was attending college, I had a Philosophy class that challenged all the ways I had previously thought. I was very unhappy, which was different from my usual way of being. A friend brought that to my attention, and I realized that she was right. After that happened, people started giving me books to read, and I was open to them all.One day, a man started talking to me, and at the end of our conversation told me to get a copy of the Book of Mormon and read it. I got ahold of one and read it that summer. I knew that no man could have written that book without Heavenly help! I got ahold of the missionaries when I went back to college, took the discussions, and was baptized. What a wonderful journey I have been on since then!

How I live my faith

Living the Gosple brings such peace and joy into my life. I especially love serving in the Temple - both as a patron and as a worker! The biggest joy is watching our children teach our grandchildren, through their words and example, how to live the Gosple and draw closer to our Heavenly Father and the Savior!
