Hi I'm Trudy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi. My name is Trudy. I am 57 years old. I have been a Mormon all of my life. I am married to Jerry. We have 12 children. Eight of them are married, so the total people in my family is 44. I have 22 grandchildren. My family is my hobby. They all live close so we spend a lot of time together. I have a missionary son who is serving in the Birmingham, Alabama mission. He was just transferred (relocated) to Tuscaloosa to continue his service. He has been out a year tomorrow. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ! It is my foundation!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is true!. I was born into the Mormon Church so I lived Mormonism because that is what I grew up with. I always went to church with my parents and family. I loved the programs of the church including Primary ( an organization for children up to age 12) and Mutual ( an organization for young men and young women age 12 to 18). My love of the gospel and testimony began to blossom during my youth. It wasn't until I was an adult that I was converted to the truth of Mormonism. The Holy Ghost has born witness to me over and over throughout my life of the truthfulness of Jesus' restored gospel. I remain very active and converted!

How I live my faith

Basically, I live my faith by having faith in Jesus Christ. On a daily basis I pray that I can be more like Jesus. I'm grateful for His teachings and I try to live them each and every day.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I think the best way to come to know Heavenly Father is through personal prayer. It will take time. It will mean that you are sincere and humble. It will take faith to believe that there really is a Heavenly Father. Heavenly Father is very loving. He desires for you to know Him.  Show more Show less
