Hi I'm Cindy

I was born in Alberta Canada, I grew up in up in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Married to a wonderful man, I have two Daughters and a Grandson. I live in Utah, I love the Gospel and I am trying very hard to follow the Teachings of the Lord. I am trying to get into School to become a nurse. I love life and try to look at the positive in all things. One of my goals is to see Gods hand in all things!! Because I know he is always there and helps us even at our worst.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the lord with all my heart!! He is the center of my world. He has watched over me and helped me through many trials. His Gospel has taught me many great things. My Heavenly father is a loving and merciful God. My life has not been the Ideal life and yet he loves me anyway and suffered and died for my sins. His gospel brings happiness and heals hurts and pain. I love him and I will follow him always!!

How I live my faith

I was recently re-fellow-shipped back into the Church. April 2010 to be exact. I had fallen away for a long time, due to happenings I felt were beyond my control. I now know that I always have a choice. Anyway. I just received my Patriarchal Blessing. I try to read it every Sunday. It brings tears to my eyes every-time, knowing that my Heavenly father loves me as much as he does. For a long time I thought he was gone. But as I look back he was there even in my deepest sorrows and during my worst days. I love to go to church on Sundays to have the opportunity to learn more about my lord and savior Jesus Christ. I Pray every night and continually work on praying in the morning. I try to have a prayer in my heart throughout the day. I read my scriptures every night, even if it is just a few verses. I try to read uplifting, teaching, books by wonderful LDS authors. I pay my tithing, and give to fast offerings whenever I can. Because I know that even though I am poor, God watches out for me when I follow his Commandments and teachings. I try to listen to the Prophet and I know he is a true modern prophet of God. The voices of the prophets and apostles and others that represent the lord, bring peace and calmness to my soul. I will finish by saying I love my Heavenly father and Jesus Christ, I strive everyday to follow them and live their teachings. For I feel that Because Jesus Christ made the atonement possible. I should do everything in my power to live up to his love and grace!! :)

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

I know that this is the True Gospel of God, and I was baptized because of that belief. We perform baptisms for the People that have crossed to the other side that did not have the opportunity to embrace the gospel and be baptized here on earth. Then they have the opportunity to choose to embrace the covenants that come with baptism. I have ancestors that have died and were not baptized, I want them to have the opportunity to have the happiness I have found with the gospel and its teachings. Show more Show less
