Hi I'm Donna

I am a stay at home mom with eight children. I love my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 40 years old and a stay-at-home mom to 8 children. My husband and I live in Northwest Oklahoma City on an 80-acre ranch. Our children love the freedom they have living in the country, but being close to a major city. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing and vinyl lettering. However, the best thing in my life is my family!! Being a mother and raising children is a big task, but I would not trade it for anything in the world!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon faith and choose to continue to follow the teachings of this church. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I believe its teachings and beliefs are essential to have in the world we live. I know we are lead by a living prophet who speaks with Christ, just like the prophets in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and that we can understand more about our Savior, Jesus Christ by reading the scriptures and following His example. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know He suffered for the sins of all mankind. I know He is near to help us with our problems, trials, and hardships as well as our joys and successes. I love my Savior and want to do all I can to return to Him and our Heavenly Father after this life. The church helps us get back to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know all these things to be true because I have studied these teachings and I have prayed to my Heavenly Father to know if these things are true. Heavenly Father has answered my prayers through the Holy Ghost, which has spoken to me in my mind and my heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily by having family prayer and family scripture study. We also have Family Home Evening every Monday night which is a big hit at our home. I teach a scripture class every morning at 600 am to some of the youth in our church. We try to live the gospel by following the teachings of Christ everyday not just on Sunday at church. We love all people and seek to see the good in everyone.
