Why I Believe ~ Minnie Mae Wilding-Diaz

March 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

What makes Minnie Mae Wilding-Diaz’s upbringing unique is that her parents are Deaf and she is the oldest of nine children, all of them also Deaf! A teacher at heart, Minnie Mae has taught both American Sign Language (ASL) and English in a variety of college and university settings, and at church. Translation is another passion, ignited by her calling as Head Translator of the ASL Book of Mormon in the 1990’s. In this groundbreaking role, Minnie Mae initiated several firsts, including completing the first book of any kind to be translated completely into ASL. Minnie Mae is also a proud co-founder of a charter school in Utah – Jean Massieu School – now part of the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind. Minnie Mae is married to Julio Diaz, and they have three grown children that they, of course, dearly love: Briella, Julio “Tres” and Isabelle. In her spare time, when there is any, she enjoys quilting and reading.


Please join us in-person or virtually ( for this unique Why I Believe Fireside with a night full of testimonies centered on Jesus Christ and His Restored Gospel. All are invited, so please bring along those who would enjoy this evening. We will have live in-person interpretations in English, Spanish, French, Chinese, & ASL.

The exhibits at the Visitors’ Center will be available to view before and after the devotional as well. Each exhibit focuses on God’s Plan, prayer, and other uplifting experiences.


We will have a “Why I Believe” devotional at 6:00 PM on the third Sunday of every month, except December.
