Hi I'm Sally

I'm a recently retired English professor. I love teaching. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have eight sons, two daughters, and 22 grandchildren. I love to grow things in my garden, read, quilt, do crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and play the piano and organ. I volunteer-tutor ESL in my local area for those who want to improve their English reading, writing, or speaking. I really enjoy teaching children and working with others.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ gives me the feeling of being loved, even cherished, by God the Father, by Jesus our Savior, and by the warming comfort of the Holy Spirit. I also feel loved and accepted by so many wonderful brothers and sisters in the Church, some of the finest people in the world. In the Church, one can put aside feelings of pride and competition with others, and simply love and help one another. Even when I make mistakes and fail, I know that I am still of worth and that if I keep trying, I can become better than I am. The Gospel of Jesus Christ offers hope for a glorious future and freedom from fear and despair, no matter what happens around me.

How I live my faith

I participate in my church mostly by teaching and providing music. Most recently, for four years I have taught a Sunday class of marvelous 11-year-olds. I have also helped organize events for women in my region, traveling around and getting to meet women in surrounding communities. That has been so rewarding! For a dozen years, I have had the privilege of serving in one of the beautiful LDS temples, helping visitors participate in sacred ordinances there. This service gives me more joy than I can express.
