Hi I'm Cyndi

I am a wife, a mother, a teacher and an eternal student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 20+ years. We have four beautiful daughters and live near the beach. I am also an elementary teacher. I love reading, spending time with my family and just living my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Through the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ I have gained an understanding of who God want's me to be. As I choose to live in the way God wants, my personal relationship with Him has grown deeper and more meaningful. I know God loves me and is aware of me. I know he gives me opportunities to grow spiritually. I find that spiritual growth comes as I serve God's other children, whether it is serving in the church or just helping those in need. The principles taught in this church have helped me to see my place in God's plan clearer and have given me the courage to live that plan daily.

How I live my faith

I lead and teach the teenage girls at our church. It is a joy to see them grow in their understanding of the gospel. their love for the Lord is an inspiration to me. I also am a visiting teacher. I visit three sisters once a month, bring them a spiritual message, and help support them in their efforts to life the gospel. My responsibilities in the church not only helps others but it also blesses my life by allowing me to focus on things that are more important them my own needs.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a personal knowledge about a gospel principle. This knowledge is received as the Holy Ghost testifies to the person that the principle is true, usually after the person has prayed and tested the principle through living it in their own life. For example, I have a testimony that God listens to and answers prayers. I gained that testimony as I have used prayer in my life. I have seen my own prayers answered and I have felt the promptings of the Holy Ghost direct me in a way that helped answer other people’s prayers. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, we acknowledge Jesus as the Savior and Redeemer of the world. He is God's only Begotten Son, and the only way back to our Heavenly Father. He chose to come to earth to lead a perfect life and die a sacrifice for our sins. Because of his Atonement, we can be forgiven of our sins, and one day live with God again. Through the resurrection, our bodies and spirits will be reunited after death. He is my brother, my Savior, my Redeemer, and my Advocate. I reverence Him, honor Him, worship Him, thank Him, and I love Him. I am a Christian. Show more Show less
