Hi I'm Vickie

I'm a mother and grandmother. I love doing genealogy, and serving others. I'm a mormon!

About Me

I'm the mother of four grown and wonderful children, and grandmother to 14 grandchildren. I worked at Ricks College and retired from BYU-I. I loved having the opportunity serving and helping the youth. There is such a light glowing from the youth of the church. I loved raising my children and helping them become the parents of my grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother was a convert to the church, she and my aunt reconverted my father to this the true gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. My parents were sealed in the Temple when I was five. With my parents firm testimonies and raising a righteous loving family, I gained a firm testimony of our Savior's gospel. I too was married and sealed in the House of the Lord to a worthy priesthood holder. I know our Heavenly Father's loving plan is real and we can return and live with him some day if we keep our covenants which we have made with Him. Jesus Christ is an example to me of how to live my life. He restored all the keys of the gospel through his chosen prophet Joseph Smith, a living prophet continues to guide us on earth today, Thomas S Monson. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on the earth today, and by living it's teachings, we will return and live again with our families in our heavenly home. I will see my parents, grand parents and all those who have passed on before me.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings in the church working with exceptional individuals. My husband and I served in the baptristy in the Idaho Falls Temple. There we would see youth, who believed in the Savior, and the plan of exaltation, which is to return and live with our Heavenly Father and his Son after our time on earth has finished. The first step is baptism, and in the temple we can give the same opportunity to our ancestors who have passed on. We became quite close to many of these youth who would come regularly for service to others. My husband and I also served in a BYU-I campus ward with the young members of the church who were learning to become the next leaders in this the true church on earth.
