As an active mom and grandma, I have a great interest in many things in this world. Religion, politics, technology, friends, nature, travel, reading, photography, and most of all my wonderful family.

A picture from Elder Lee
This week when Matt emailed us from his mission in Brazil, I asked him if he could take a picture and email it to us. I am always trying to picture where he is as he is emailing. So I was really excited when he sent this picture. Thanks Elder Lee! I love the picture! He has completed 8 and a half months of his 2 year mission. He is getting fluent in Portuguese, and has gained experience and has been having lots of opportunities to teach the gospel. He is loving it. I love him and miss him. Last night I had a dream about him. I just couldn't quit hugging him, so when I woke up I missed him so much. But I'm thrilled that he is doing what he knows is right. Being the mother of a missionary is a wonderful experience. While you miss your son, you are also very proud and happy for him. I know he misses us too, but he is happy to be in Brazil working as a missionary. Go Matt! Keep up the good work.
I live in a small town in Arkansas with my husband. We work at the local school. I'm busy with church work and school work - I am in charge of the yearbook. I love visits from my family. One of my greatest interests is in supporting my missionary son who is serving in Brazil for the LDS church. We love to get letters and emails from him. I'm the proud grandma of two beautiful granddaughters. I have a great love for my country. I read and listen and occasionally I speak out!
