Hi I'm Rondi

I'm a Mormon. I was born in Salt Lake, but my family were AZ pioneers & we moved back to AZ when I was 3 yrs. Old.

About Me

Hi! I am married and I have four wonderful children. We have a blended family, my husband joined the Church about a year after we were married. When we got married I already had 3 teenagers from a previous marriage, and about a year after we got married, we were blessed with a beautiful little girl. I was raised in Arizona & wouldn't want to live anywhere else, but I love to visit other beautiful places...especially places that have greenery! We love to go to San Diego and play in the ocean. My kids & I love to boogie board or just lay on the beach listening to the waves. Earlier this year my husband & I were both let go from our jobs. He continued looking for a "company" job & recently found a great place he loves. I decided to become an entrepreneur and start my own company, using my own talents & previous experience to serve my community better AND have much more family time. I speak Spanish fluently having learned it in high school, college & serving a mission for the LDS church in Costa Rica, Central America. I like taking care of my family, running my own business, digital scrapbooking, reading, movies, hiking, swimming & having bar-b-que's & swim parties with my extended family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the LDS Faith. But that is not why I continue to be Mormon. I have been to other churches & studied other religions, & I respect them. I have also read & studied the Book of Mormon, along with the Bible & I know that it is a true book. I know without a doubt that it is true. I know it of myself, & not just because my mom said it was, or because a teacher told me it was so...I KNOW it. I have had many prayers & many trials of my faith. I have had many blessings and many answers to my prayers & desires of my heart to know that my Father in Heaven lives, that He sent His Son to teach us, love us & be our Redeemer. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of the Lord & very importantly, that we still have a true & living Prophet of God today, leading & guiding the people of the world! I could never be anything else but Mormon. I wouldn't want to.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith as best I can. I am still progressing. I have taught the young kids in our church...they are the best to teach. The children are so sweet and pure, they teach ME! I have also taught classes to the women of the church, also very rewarding. I want to be a better example to all of them. And I learn from each of them too! I like serving in the church cannery canning food storage. Food storage & preparedness are also important teachings. Being self sufficient so one may help others in need is important.
