Hi I'm Nena Grilley

I grew up in Oregon. I am a wife, mother, grandma, homemaker and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, a wife since 1978, mother of six and grandmother of four darlings. I love learning truth via the Holy Ghost as I study scriptures and magnify my callings. I enjoy keeping my house in order and being in touch with my family, helping them when I can. I am a geologist by training so I love being our in nature, especially hunting rocks and watching birds. I also enjoy Christian fiction, local history, collecting sea shells, photography, crocheting and other crafts.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a truth seeker. As a young adult, I wanted a closer relationship with God. In my searching, I was taught by missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I gained testimonies of the importance of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and my Savior, Joseph Smith being His prophet, the Book of Mormon as another Testament of Jesus Christ, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the kingdom of God on earth and Spencer W. Kimball as His prophet at that time. Having found truth, I embraced it because I love Jesus Christ and want to become like Him. Mormon was a valiant follower of Jesus during challenging times in the Book of Mormon, so I'm proud to be called a "Mormon" too!

How I live my faith

I was baptized and later made additional sacred covenants in the temple. I now strive to always remember Jesus and show my love for Him and Heavenly Father by striving to obey Their commandments and keeping my covenants. I'm a LDS Family Services Missionary and serve as chorister for our ward choir and play piano for our ladies meeting. I study scriptures and pray to know my Father's will daily then I strive to go and do with faith in Jesus and a smile on my face. Good is God. I Love Him with all my hear, soul and mind and when I mess up, I repent, every thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ.
