Hi I'm Trudy

I am a retired school teacher who had the opportunity to teach not only in The United States, but also in Italy. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a graduate of BYU. I am an avid reader and love mysteries, historical fiction, and nonfiction. I am a retired school teacher and loved my teaching career. I am happy now to be volunteering in many different locations and enjoy the association I have with people through my volunteer work. I enjoy seeing others benefit from what I am able to offer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Church is true. I know that it is led by Jesus Christ through a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I know that Joseph Smith was the means that our Heavenly Father used to restore His Gospel to the earth and that only through this Gospel can we obtain Eternal Life. I know that this is the only way to real and lasting happiness. I love to attend church and study the scriptures as I find my way through this trail-ridden life. This gives me the faith and courage to go on even when times get difficult and difficulties plague my life. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love Jesus Christ, my Savior. I love my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have had many positions in my church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I think my favorites were teaching adults or youth and acting as interpreter from the Italian language to the English language for church meetings. I had the opportunity to do this when I worked as a high school teacher in Northern Italy. I truly loved my time there and working with the Italian members of our church. I strive to always be an example to others by how I live as I follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We, the Mormons, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, have something that brings immense joy into our lives. It is the Gospel of Jesus Christ restored to the earth in its fullness in these latter days. We want everyone to feel the joy that the Gospel brings. We want to share with everyone what true happiness is. We want everyone to have the peace that we have in our lives. We want everyone to find the answers to life's questions. This is why we are so missionary minded. This is why missionaries go through our the world to share the Good News and that is why my husband and I have served a mission and why we are going to serve more missions. We have something grand to share with the world especially in these troubled times. There is an answer to the questions. Peace and happiness are possible. Show more Show less
