Hi I'm Colleen Wilson

I grew up in a large family in central Utah and have been a Mormon all my life

About Me

I am a wife, mother of five children and grandmother. I have been a Mormon all of my life. I love being with my family. I enjoy walking, bike riding and yoga. I enjoy helping my husband raise a garden. I love the fresh fruits and vegetables we grow and try to eat healthy.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised in the church I still had to choose for myself how I was going to live and whether or not I believed it was true. I never doubted that the church was true, and as I have grown older I have been strengthened as I have lived the teachings of the church. I have had some very close loved ones pass away, some unexpectedly. I have felt the comfort of the Holy Ghost during those times and have had the reassurance that we will be reunited again some day. I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ and want to follow them.

How I live my faith

I love to serve and try to help others whenever I can. I have served in many callings throughout my life. At the present time my husband and I are preparing to serve a mission in California San Fernando. We will be serving in the mission office for 18 months. Although it is hard to leave our home and be away from family and friends for that long, I know we will be blessed and I also know I can never do enough to repay my Savior for all He has done for me.
