Hi I'm Char

I live in Arizona am a mother of 5 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just turned 50, never thinking i would never get old and feeling the same way I did in college. I am a wife and and a mother and I am starting to see the "fruits of my labor" and I mean labor. I have been married for 25 years and I still like my husband. I have five kids and I like them too. I say "like" because sometimes that is harder to do than love them. I have a son just married to a kind young woman, a daughter on a mission, a daughter who is a freshman in college, and two sons still in Junior High and High School. "Life is good, very very good".

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has given me the perspective I need to make my way through this life. When life gets crazy, I remember what matters most. And it's not a clean house or what others think of me. What kind of a person I am and my relationships with others is truly the only things that matter. My mom taught me to ask myself "What would Jesus do?" So, I spend time to find that out by reading my scriptures, praying, listening to the Prophets, attending church, and most of all by spending time with my family to develop those relationships. My testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel is my foundation. I love Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and all that the do for me.

How I live my faith

I know correct principles but living them is not always an easy thing to do, but I try to live the Golden Rule. And when I make mistakes, I try to learn and then try again and again and again. Our church is good about giving us opportunities to serve and feel useful. Right now I am involved with other women in organizing and participating in Humanitarian efforts each month to benefit non-profit organizations in our area. I have taught the children, youth and women in my church. I like being involved and fostering relationships.
