Hi I'm Joyce

I was born in Idaho, lived in California but now I live in Utah. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother and I'm happy to be a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be a grandmother. Teaching, sharing time with and caring for my grandchildren is one of the joys of my life. I also love flowers and love to garden ~ even the weeding! It gives me a feeling of accomplishment when I see that my efforts result in a well-tended yard. I enjoy decorating and taking care of our home. I have learned to paint, wallpaper and do many small repairs around our home. I also like to sew. When my children were small I sewed many of their clothes, but now enjoy making curtains, tablecloths, pillows and other things to make our home feel more comfortable.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was eight years old. My parents taught my brothers and I the gospel of Jesus Christ as children and living the gospel continues to bless my life and the lives of my own family today. As I read the Bible and especially the Book of Mormon, my testimony of the way that Heavenly Father and Jesus want me to live continues to grow. I know why I am here on earth at this time. The gospel makes sense to me. I know that Heavenly Father expects me to serve him and those around me and I am grateful for the examples of my family and friends as they also serve Him. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth and that it is the same gospel that He taught and lived. I want to return someday with my family to live with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have served in many different capacities as a member of the Mormon Church. I have taught children and young women as well as other women. The friendship and sisterhood that I feel from women in my church helps to inspire me to always do my best.
