Hi I'm Patti

I grew up in southern California. Love the beach! I currently live in Washington state, USA.

About Me

Growing up in southern California, I love the ocean and my birth father taught my brothers and me how to swim and to body surf at a young age. He took us to the beach often. I love being at the ocean. I currently swim in an indoor pool for exercise, but always wish I was at the ocean. I was married to a wonderful man and currently am a widow. I have twin girls that came into my life when they were 17 years old. I have 5 grandchildren, who are the light of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in sixth grade, I attended church with a friend from school. I was there so much that the Pastor asked me if I wanted to baptized and suggested I talk with my parents. In talking this over with my birth father, he asked me to investigate The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which was his church, and then make my decision. We had the missionaries over to our home and I felt the power of their message. I knew through the promptings of the Holy Spirit that I should join the my dad's church. It has been the greatest blessing of my life.

How I live my faith

I love being with my family and spend as much time with them as our schedules allow. I attend almost all of of my grandchildren's school activities and volunteer in their school classes. For the past several years I have been attending a community Bible study class. I've enjoyed being with other Christian women as we have studied about the life and teaching of Jesus.
