Hi I'm Mary

I live in Idaho, USA. I have 25 Grandchildren. Being a grandmother is the best thing in the whole world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being with my husband of 47 years, whether it is driving his golf cart, fishing, or just going for a drive. We help each other and love to spend time together. I also enjoy sewing, reading, and being in the outdoors. Also I love cooking, baking, and being a homemaker. I love the laughter of grandchildren playing together and it brings me joy to spend time with them. I have worked as a Financial Counselor at the local hospital, where I received great satisfaction helping people solve problems and overcome challenges.

Why I am a Mormon

I have spent my life working with different age groups in our local church. I have helped teach and organize events that involve the individual and the family.I love the concept of "one by one." I feel valued as a woman, a mother, a wife, a sister, and a daughter of earthly and Heavenly Parents. I read the Book of Mormon each day and have prayed to know of it's truthfulness. The Holy Ghost continues to confirms these truths over and over again. I am grateful to the Prophet Joseph Smith, for his humble prayer, and for revelation given to him in these latter-days. The Priesthood has been restored, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is organized the same as in the Saviors day. I love the Savior, Jesus Christ, and want to serve others like He served while He walked on this earth. I love the principle of forgiveness so I can try each day to overcome problems and try to do better. I know we have a Prophet and Apostles on the earth today that receive divine direction from God in heaven. I am most grateful for Temples where families can be together forever. I have learned questions are good and I can study and find answers. Some are answered now and some take longer.

How I live my faith

I strive each day to help someone else. I love my family and try to be a good example of helping and serving others. I am trying to strengthen my character to live a positive and happy life. I enjoy the simple things like spending time playing with grandchildren or sharing lunch with a friend.
