Hi I'm Goldie

I'm a second generation Punjabi-Indian living in the Midwest. I'm A Mormon.

About Me

Talofa! My little family is quite multicultural My husband is a Samoan-African American from Hawaii and I am a Punjabi--Caucasian from Ohio. We have a very active eight month old baby that loves to destroy our little home. She is my joy. Along with being a mom and wife, I am a graduate student studying public administration. Once upon a time, I loved to kick-box, lift weights, and play tennis...now I spend most of my time chasing my baby girl

Why I am a Mormon

Ever since I was a little girl, my parents have taught me about Jesus Christ and His restored Gospel on the earth today. They told me the stories about Jesus Christ and taught me to keep the 10 commandments. When I was eight years old, I was baptized into this church. As I grew my desire to follow Jesus Christ blossomed. I can never recall a specific moment where I doubted my faith in the Lord. As I've chosen to follow the teachings of Christ, I've felt much joy and peace. On several occasions, I have felt the love of the Lord in my heart and a strong witness from the Holy Spirit that this church is true. This is not to say that I have not had hard times, but as I've put my trust in the Lord, He has always helped me. I continue to follow the teachings of Christ because they render so much peace and stability in my life. I do make mistakes often, but I can repent. I can pray and ask the Lord to forgive me and then I can feel right again. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by trying to follow the Savior's example of love and kindness. I think if we all treated each other with more respect and love, there would much more peace in the world. Each day I make time to pray to God by myself and with my husband. We are reading the New Testament right now together and it's helping us grow closer together. I just recently was asked by my bishop to teach Sunday School to the teenagers in my congregation. This year we are studying in the Old Testament. I also am a visiting teacher. I visit four women from my congregation each month to share a message about Christ and see if they need any help. This has been a good experience for me because I've been able to make new friends and receive strength and support from these women.
