Hi I'm Candida
I'm half Hispanic and I was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. I'm a cancer survivor and I'm a Mormon.
I am currently a support specialist/administrative assistant in the Church Educational System. I have worked as a high school math teacher and a school bus driver. My interests have included classic cars, music, sewing, video games, and dancing.
Why I am a Mormon
When I was about 13 years old, I had questions about religion even though I was raised a Mormon. After much pondering, I concluded that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There were so many teachings and explanations that other religions did not have. Through personal prayer I have grown closer to God. As I continue to learn about Jesus, it's important for me to change my life so it is more like His.
How I live my faith
I am a co-leader for my daughter's Girl Scout troop. I voluntarily sew on patches and badges earned by the 40 girls in our troop onto their troop sashes and vests. Each child is a daughter/son of God and it's important that they learn their self-worth not just through church but also through being part of society. Volunteering is very important to me because it's a way for me to show my love to all of God's children. We are all God's children.
