Hi I'm Dixie

I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and best of all a grandmother. I like to play tennis. I am a quilter. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I raised 3 boys. They married 3 beautiful girls. I now have 12 grandchildren. I am still in love with my husband of 36 years. I volunteered at schools, worked part time jobs and stayed home with my kids. I have led a very ordinary life full of extra ordinary experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

The family I grew up in did not have any religious affiliation or attend any church. I seemed to always have some sort of spiritual leanings and searched of many churches, went to church camps and attended other church related activities. I was searching, but did not know what I was looking for.When I was 15 I became friends with several Mormons and through them I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. One ward and one family in particular was instrumental in teaching me the Gospel and helping me to gain a testimony. It felt right, it was love, it felt like home. I am a Mormon because I have gained a witness of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a testimony that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and gained a personal knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because it helps me to be who I want to be, it helps me to do better and be better.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving. I have served at church by working with the little children, teaching teenagers and in leading and working beside other women. I try to do what I am asked with a happy heart. I try to be involved in my neighborhood community. I have friends of many faiths and am grateful for their part in my life. I try to be kind in my word and deed when I interact with others. My motto/creed is: "People may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you do." I live my faith by quietly, and hopefully, consistently doing what I believe is right.
