Hi I'm Debbie

I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I am a wife and a mother of 3 wonderful young men. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm someone who finds family history and genealogy fascinating and I take every opportunity I can to learn more about it everyday. I have a wonderful husband and three wonderful grown sons. I am also a grandma and that is my proudest achievement to date!

Why I am a Mormon

One snowy afternoon in December came a knock at our front door. When I answered it there were two young snow covered men standing there smiling. They told me they were from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They asked if they could tell me about it. I invited them in and to sit down and warm up. We had a great conversation about the church that afternoon, shared a scripture and a prayer and finally they left a Book of Mormon with me. They made an appointment to come back to discuss the Book with me and my husband. I made and kept that appointment and read the scripture they asked me to read. When I read it there was a sense of peace and understanding I had never felt before. Its as if this one was the one true church we had been searching forever for....we made our appointment to be baptized soon after.

How I live my faith

Currently I am Second Counselor in the Young Women's program in our ward. I love this calling because it gives the young women in our ward a chance to learn and grow into wonderful daughters, wives and mothers. My other calling is ward Choir director. Music is a beautiful way to worship our Lord Jesus Christ. It fills my soul with so much peace and spirit.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes they can be together forever by accepting the Atonement of Jesus Christ through sacred ordinances performed in God's holy temples. My husband and I have been sealed at the temple for all eternity. We are working on sealing all of our parents and children too. Show more Show less
