Hi I'm Angelique hardy

I was born in England but mostly grew up in Louisiana. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in England, my father was serving in the United States Air Force. My family would later move back to the states to Louisiana. I have an older and younger sister and a brother. Another sister died at the age of one year. Traveling as an Air Force brat, I was able to reside in several different states. After retirement my family returned to Louisiana. This is where I would meet and later marry my sweetheart. We married in the Washington DC temple in 1975. Later I would be blessed to bring 3 children to the earth. My children have been raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and also each one married in the temple. Currently, they too, are raising righteous children. One of my grandsons is serving a mission in Utah at this writing. Justin and I have always planned to serve a full time mission when we retired. Our life has been full of blessings and experiences that have prepared us for a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints yet it was as an adult that I gained my own personal testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives answers to many questions I had as a child. It tells of Heavenly Fathers love for me. I know my purpose for coming to this earth, and I know the plan of Salvation shows me I can return to my Father in Heaven as well as enjoy eternity with my family.

How I live my faith

I have been given many opportunities to serve the Lord. Each calling was a blessing to me and my family. The most challenging would be when I was called to be a Seminary teacher. This five morning a week assignment took dedication and study. I grew to love the Book of Mormon, the Bible and other books in the church. My first calling was at the age of 15. I conducted the music for our young primary children on Wednesday afternoon after school was out. I served in Relief Society and Young Women as well. Working with 'Helping Hands', a service group from the church, increased my compassion for those who have lost everything they had to horrific storms and flooding. There is great joy in service.
