Hi I'm Phyllis

I'm a widow, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I am the youngest of 10 children. My husband, deceased in 2010, and I have 5 children, 18 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren that we love dearly. I love to spend time with family, do Face Time with those who live long distances away. I live in the country and like to do yard work and garden. I enjoy Family History, reading books and I work in the temple one day a week.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a Mormon home but as I grew older I had some questions about my faith. I made mistakes in my life but as my life has progressed I have had many experiences when I reached out to the Lord and have been guided, taught and strengthened. I now know without a doubt that I am a child of God. I love him and Jesus Christ, my savior and redeemer. He knows me, loves me and wants me to come back home to live with him.. I also know that all things are in his hands. He allows us our agency and allows us to suffer the consequences of our actions but will do all he can to lead us back to him. I'm a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true, and embraces His teachings. I am extremely grateful for the life and atoning sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ, which allows me to repent of my sins, and return to live with my Heavenly Father eternally.

How I live my faith

I attend our church services every Sunday. I read the Book of Mormon, Bible and other inspired works daily. I serve as a Visiting Teacher and at the Temple one day a week. I like to search for information about our ancestors. I have been Family History Consultant and I try to encourage and help others with their Family History work including youth. In this way I can help my own ancestors and other people's ancestors to receive the saving ordinances that will connect our families together eternally. . It brings great joy and satisfaction to me. I am very consistent in remembering to pray to my Father-in-Heaven and try very hard to write in my journal every day.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Phyllis
 We believe that the family unit can be eternal. We prepare the records of our families so that we can perform sacred ordinances for the living and by proxy for our dead ancestors in the temple to allow the family to be bound together eternally. I believe I will be able to be with my husband again along with my ancestors and my family that are here on earth if we obey God’s commandments. Participating in these efforts brings great joy to my life. Show more Show less
