Hi I'm Windy

I'm a wife, mother, domestic engineer and small business owner. I repair musical instruments and I play the tuba. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised with out any form of religious or spiritual awareness. I was taught to be a good honest person and to have integrity. Though neither of my parents understand why I have become a religious person they both support my ability to be an adult and make my own decisions. They were both at my baptism and would have been outside the temple had I asked. My parents divorced when I was a teenager and I never had a sense of "something missing" in my life. Most of my lifelong friends turned out to be members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I realized that I preferred to be with friends that wouldn't ask me to do things I wasn't interested in (the typical high school party scene). I was socially converted for many years before I spirituality matured to the point I was willing and able to make AND KEEP spiritual covenants. When I converted it was like a whole new dimension was added to my already fulfilled and happy life. I was only 8 when my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. My answer was immediate and firm. A wife. Now I am living in a season of peace with a wonderful husband and 3 lovely little girls. I have a degree in Band Instrument Repair as well as a Bachelor's in Liberal Studies. I have many talents and interests and have to remember that to everything there is a season and not try to pursue all my hobbies at once. I currently play my tuba in both a polka band and a concert band.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was investigating the church I was praying for testimonies of many of the gospel principles. Then i had a major car accident when I hit a cow and all my questions were answered, just not in the way I expected. I lived to tell the story and knew that Heavenly Father had taken care of me, through the Holy Ghost I had known something was going to happen to the car, through tithing the insurance payment payed off my existing debts and purchased a replacement car and many other blessing came of a catastrophic event. I was baptized a month later. I am grateful for the gospel and all the blessings it has given me since I was baptized in1998.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by reading the scriptures every day, say my prayers and attend the temple when I can. I live the word of wisdom including to eat less meat and more grains. I faithfully pay my tithing and put forth the effort to honor the Sabbath day. I try to be more aware of those around me that may have needs I can fulfill rather than being to caught up in my own trials (this works sometimes, but it is easy to be too busy living my own life to remember to serve others). I love to visit teach and I do my best to encourage my husband to do his home teaching.
