Hi I'm Greta

I'm a widow. I'm a farmer. I'm a crossing guard. I'm a lunch room worker. I'm a mom & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I still live in the same city that was born in. I've been working as a crossing guard and a lunchroom worker for 41 years. I have been a widow for almost 5 years. I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 10 years.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband had his first heart attack about 12 years ago and I decided that his health problems might be related to his diet so I started reading books on natural health and heart health. I got my husband reading these books as well. He decided that we should take a class about natural health and found a school on natural healing. The teacher of the class was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and in his lessons he mentioned the Word of Wisdom in The Doctrine and Covenants. My husband asked me about it and I told him I didn't know what it was. He saw a commercial on TV about how he could get a Book of Mormon for free so he called the number and the book came along with a set of missionaries. When my husband decided to go to the Church, I decided to go with him. The missionaries told us about baptisms for the dead and I had a son who had accidentally shot himself about 20 years before and he had not been baptized before he passed away. The idea that something could be done now for him was amazing to me and I was ready to join. After we joined the church my husband, who was afraid of water was able to be baptized for my son.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday, I read the Book of Mormon every day before I go to bed, I talk to my Heavenly Father all of the time, I pay my tithing, I try to help someone in some way everyday, I keep the commandments, I attend the temple regularly, I try to serve my calling to the best of my ability, I watch out for my neighbors.
