Hi I'm Patricia

I grew up in Utah. I raised 5 children. I’m a Mormon!

About Me

I have been a member of the church all my life. While my children were in school, I worked as a daycare provider at home. Before and after my kids were at home, I worked as an elementary teacher and site specialist. I retired two years ago from my last employment in education. I love to read youth mystery books. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love Christmas music and movies. I love music and have enjoyed playing the piano and organ for 50 years. I enjoy listening to many kinds of music. My favorite thing to do is visit our children and play with the grandchildren. I lost one grandson right after he was born and that was a very emotional time for me but I learned a lot about Heavenly Father’s love during that time.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and taught me as a child to love the teachings. Even though they taught me and I was baptized at age 8, I still had to experience my own conversion. My conversion came through praying, by studying the Book of Mormon, and by attending church. I do know that Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers and loves me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that this church is God’s correct church on the earth. I know we have a living prophet who guides this church as directed by God. I know all of these things because I prayed about it and the Spirit touched my heart that I might know.

How I live my faith

There are many ways during my life that I have loved to serve to show my love of my Heavenly Father and express my faith in Jesus Christ. As a youth, I played the piano and organ for church meetings. As an adult, I served 22 years in many capacities in the BSA, taught children and adults, played the organ, and loved visiting women who were ill or needed a friend to talk to. In my senior years, I have enjoyed organizing the cleaning groups who serve to keep our church building clean.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons help people all over the world and of every denomination. Mormons send relief help to every big disaster that happens anywhere in the world. Mormons know that all people are children of God and they love to help all of their brothers and sisters. Show more Show less
