Chat With a Mormon Online
I have been married for 43 years to the most amazing man! I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 7 I am active in my community and I enjoy politics, water aerobics,walking, baking bread and gardening.
My testimony of the gospel came 35 years ago when I was baptized on June 8, 1978 and it continues to grow still today with my love of studying the scriptures of my Savior's example. He is my light and guide! The gift of the Holy Ghost is so comforting when I apply the Atonement daily in my life. Each morning in my prayers, I dedicate the day to Him and ask for Him to be my guide in all I do and say. Some times I fall short but it is comforting to know that if I repent and call on his holy name for help he is always there to give that peaceful feeling to know he cares. I know my Heavenly Father has a plan for me and my Savior lives! I am ever so grateful that I have a beautiful family that will be with me forever, if I just follow Christ's teachings and endure to the end!
I have such comfort in knowing that my Savior is always there when I am sad, discouraged or I just feel I can't get through a situation. I have faith to know that he suffered for my sins and trials and discouragements. He is my salvation and guide to eternal life!
Several years ago I had to go to have some counseling because of depression. I was confused why I was this way. My counselor asked me to tell him 5 good things about myself and I could not think of one. Then he wrote on the chalkboard this verse from the scriptures as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he’ [Prov. 23:7] He told me that I was a daughter of God who loves me and I had many gifts. Praying daily for help and knowing this helped me in so many ways.
I love my callings I have in my church which include working with Community Leaders to help to build bridges of friendship. I also keep contact visiting and helping out three special ladies who I share a message each month on Our Savior Jesus Christ!
