Hi I'm Lorna Beth Burgess

I'm a mother and grandmother, I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I loved being a mother to my five children and now I am a grandmother to twenty three wonderful kids. I love reading books, sewing and gardening. I now have a quilting machine and enjoy hours in my sewing room creating quilts for family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, my parents were faithful Latter-Day Saints. They were a great example to me of faith and service. I felt my own testimony begin to grow and it has continued to do so throughout my life. It began with prayer, studying the Book of Mormon and serving others. It is now such a part of me that I cannot imagine facing today's world without this knowledge of my Heavenly Father and the plan he has for each of us. I am grateful for the Atonement of my Savior and the healing power it is in my life.

How I live my faith

I have served in my community and ward for many years and now my husband and I are leaving to serve a full time mission for eighteen months. We have both lived in the same area and ward for all our lives so this is a big step for us. It has been an exciting few months preparing to leave our home to go and share the gospel with others. We are looking forward to making new friends and serving the Lord full time.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Lorna Beth Burgess
The best way to come to know your Father in Heaven is to learn about him. Pray to him, make your prayers personal and ask him the questions you have. Then go to the scriptures and read about the teachings he has given us. Then put those teachings to the test by living those commandments, then you will feel a sweet peace and warmth that comes to us we seek Him out. Show more Show less
