Hi I'm Diane

I am an indexer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I index. Records from all over the world are becoming available for everyone's use. They contain information to aide in discovering our family history. These records are many times written in cursive and can be hard to read. I read the record and record the information it contains for others to more easily view. My favorite records are birth records. I love to learn. Reading books, magazines, or information from the internet are some of the ways I enhance my learning. I would spend all day outside if I could. I especially enjoy being in the mountains, close to waterfalls or other water sources. I have recently found a new passion - researching my ancestors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into and raised in a Mormon family. Through an experience I had at the age of 12 I gained a testimony of the truth that is contained in the doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or Mormon church. I took the challenge given by the Apostle John; "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." I lived as obediently as my knowledge and age allowed and by doing so my faith in Jesus Christ and knowledge of His gospel grew. As I grew in knowledge and faith I came to know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church on the earth today. I testify that God lives. He is a loving Father to all of us. He knows and cares about each of us. Christ is our Savior, the only way to the peace, joy and eternal rewards we all seek.

How I live my faith

Going hand in hand with my love of learning is a love of teaching. I especially love to teach youth or young adults. Early in the morning each school day I met with 20 to 30 youth to learn together about the Book of Mormon, The Bible and other scriptures. I did this for fourteen years and loved it.
