Hi I'm Ruth

I'm a wife and a stay-at-home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Saudi Arabia but my family moved back to the States when I was six. After highschool I went to our local community college and got an Associates in Liberal Arts. After that I was not sure what I wanted to do with my life. My main interest and talent was fine arts, but I did not know how I could make that into a successful career that I would enjoy. So, I ended up getting a job as an administrative assistant. During this time I met and married my husband. When the economy turned south I was laid off but was able to find another job as an office manager relatively quickly. In 2010 we had our first child. Working and being a wife and mother was extremely hard on me and my family, so I ended up quitting my job. Staying at home is hard work, but I love it and hope that I will never have to re-enter the workplace.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church before I was born. When I was about eight years old I decided that I was never going to leave the church. I told myself that even if the church were not true it taught good principles which would help me be a good and decent person. I have come a long way since that time and I have had many instances that tried my faith. I now can say that I will never leave the church because I know it is true. God answers my prayers. As I try to obey the commandments and do His will I see Him guiding my life. He knows me and wants what is best for me. I may make the same mistakes over and over, but as I repent He is always there to forgive and to love. Through Christ’s great sacrifice I will one day be able to live with God in joy and peace!

How I live my faith

I strive to be the best person I can be. I try to be kind towards my fellow man. I try to be the best wife and mother that I can be. I am constantly striving to know and understand Gold’s will so that I can do his will. I have served in many different capacities in the church. Currently I serve as the Cub Scout Committee Chairman for our congregation’s Cub Scout Pack. This is a new experience for me, but I am learning to love it. I am coming to know for myself that the church supports Scouts because it is an inspired program.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

God will send his Holy Spirit to testify to you of truth. You must act first. Read the scriptures, pray, attend a church service, or try living a gospel principle such as loving and forgiving others. If you do any of these things the Lord will put it into your mind and heart that these things are good and true. The more you do the more you will come to realize that Mormonism is true.  Show more Show less
