Most importantly, though, I am a convert of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) and love it! My parents were converts to the Mormon faith a decade or so into their marriage. As a result, I also joined the Mormon church as a youth. To this day, I am grateful for that decision. I love the Savior Jesus Christ and relish the knowledge that He is my Redeemer and Savior. Without Him, I would not be who I am today. In fact, I would be most lost!
The Lord has blessed my life in many ways, as He will for all His children. Some of those greatest blessings have come in the form of my family. My husband is my great stabilizer and friend. My kids, in fact, are pretty awesome and very normal. While we have experienced death, disabilities, and other traumas, we still tend to have a lot of fun as a family.
I canīt wait to share with you here at the LDS BellaOnline.com site. Not only will we explore the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, but we will also explore many other exciting topics. Weīll also meet from time-to-time LDS authors, playwrights, composers, scientists ... in fact, if there is anyone you are interested in being interviewed, just drop me an email and Iīll see if I can oblige.
Itīs great to have you here. Now for those promised links (of course, I donīt participate in all of these at once [grin]):
* My Sunday music CD called A Time for Ana. (I wrote this music to aid healing in children [or adults] who have experienced trauma. But itīs also been used for the Sabbath day and scripture study.)
* My articles at Meridian Magazine help families with Family Home Evening lessons.
Iīm also in the process of scoring my musicals that have been produced. When that is done, they will be available for download to use in your own stakes and wards - without charge.
A few other activities including speaking at EFYs, serving on a variety of local and national committees, teaching at a college, and (when thereīs time) knitting. :0)
Why do I do all this? I feel talents are meant to be used to bless the lives of families. Everything that I can possibly offer for free, I do.
Until then, here is my favorite scripture: D&C 111:11. Bottom line: the Lord loves us! It underscores everything I do.
