Hi I'm Pamela

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Spanish Fork, Utah. My husband and I are serving in the Provo, Utah mission and love mission work.

About Me

I am married with 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I have been a teacher for the past 38 years and have recently retired. My husband and I enjoy camping and story telling. I spend a lot of time crocheting scarfs and hats for the homeless shelter. For the past six years we have been ordinance workers in the Provo and Payson LDS Temples. One of our best memories is taking a Church History Tour from Niagara Falls to Winter Quarters. I learned so much about the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints while on this tour.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my mother was a convert to the church. She was from Illinois. When they left Illinois they traveled as far as their money would allow them to go. We ended up in Spanish Fork Canyon. Six months later I was born in Spanish Fork Hospital. My mother taught me about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and read the stories of the Bible and Book of Mormon to me as a child. I was baptized at eight years old and remember knowing that the church was true from early in my life.

How I live my faith

Some of the callings I have had in our ward are; Nursery Worker, Primary Teacher, Humanitarian Specialist, and worked as a counselor in the Relief Society. One time while teaching a lesson to three year old children about the resurrected Savior, the children looked at a picture of Him on the cross. Tears were running down their faces. They brightened up when they were told that he still lives and was resurrected. Even at a young age, children can feel the truth of the gospel of Christ. We home and visit teach a building. Not the building itself but anyone who moves in and out of that building. We currently visit 5 families. Once or more each month we go to see how they are doing and if they are in need of any help. We invite them to activities in our ward and try to let them know that we care about them. We love living in a community where people care about one another.
