Hi I'm Cindy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 6 children, and the aunt of 7 adorable nieces and nephews....soon to be 10! I work full time in finances with thoughts of going back to school to be a school counselor. I love the youth! I believe they are the leaders of tomorrow and they are amazing! I love good music and started taking violin lessons once again after a 15 year hiatus. I love to travel but most of all I love people.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life but I continue to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I know that the doctrines are true. I have come to this knowledge myself through study of the scriptures and much prayer. It is the one thing on this earth that makes me truly happy from the inside out. I feel like I lead a pretty normal life filled with the trials and challenges that life presents, insecurities, doubts, failure, etc. Yet, I know that through Jesus Christ I can overcome these challenges. I know that instead of turning to other things that may give me a temporary happiness, when I turn to Christ I find a deeper happiness that lasts much longer. I am not going to say that following the commandments of Jesus Christ is always the easiest thing for me to do but out of everything I do in life, this brings about the best outcome. As long as I continue reading the scriptures, praying and following the commandments I know I will always be able to have that true happiness.

How I live my faith

For the past couple of years I have been working with the women's organization in our church. I have grown to love each and every one of these women whose ages range from the teens to some who are almost 100. I have learned so much from each one. In previous years I have had the opportunity to teach the small children of whom I absolutely adore. Even though I don't work with them as closely as a teacher, I still look forward to seeing them. They are very wise for their young ages and are very eager and quick to learn. I love getting to know people of all walks of life. I believe there are so many good and positive things going on out there in the world, it's fun to find and recognize them.

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

Cindy
This question is very close to my heart right now as my grandfather passed away recently. Mormons believe that after a person dies their spirit and body are separated. Their body stays here on earth in whatever form they are buried, but their spirit goes to a Spirit World. What I love and something that gives me great comfort is that we believe we have the opportunity to continue to learn and progress in our spirit form after we die. We also believe we will be reunited with those who have passed on before us. These beliefs have brought me great comfort in these past few weeks. Show more Show less

What is the Relief Society?

Cindy
The Relief Society is the women's organization in the LDS Church. The purpose of the organization is in the name, to provide relief. This relief is not only provided to other women but to all we can within our reach. The Relief Society provides help and comfort to those in our congregation as well as those in the community and throughout the world. I love the friendships that are formed as we have the opportunity of teaching each other in our church meetings and our service throughout the week as we go throughout our normal daily activities. I feel that wherever I were to go throughout the world, if I found the Relief Society I would find a friend. Show more Show less
