Hi I'm Wendy

I'm a wife. I'm a daughter. I love nature and enjoy working with it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Landscape Architect. I love working with the environment and people to create natural, beautiful spaces that people want to use. I love being in nature and enjoying my Heavenly Father's creations. I'm also a small business owner. I own and operate a crystal suncatcher, jewelry, and decoration business. I enjoy art and music, folk painting, jewelry making, baking, and assorted other crafts and diversions. I have a husband and a dog, and I live to keep them happy and well. We all enjoy camping, fishing, and hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my Heavenly Father loves me. He knows me personally and loves me. He has been with me throughout my life and I daily feel his touch in my life. He has provided me peace, comfort, and worldly support at all times that I have needed. He feels my every need. I know He lives and Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that I have a Heavenly home waiting for me when I leave this life and I look forward to being with those who have passed on before me. I am grateful that my family is eternal, that I can be with them is this life and beyond. I am a Mormon because I don't know how I could live without the gospel. Its in my heart and my soul, and it is what allows me to thrive through all of my trials. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and want to return to them some day having been a faithful servant.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being me. I help others when I can. I give my time and talents to my church, my neighborhood, and my community. I've volunteered with community gardens and I'm always willing to share my knowledge with those who seek help. I've helped my church through simple acts of providing food for activities or feeding the missionaries. I've worked in all aspects of my church from teaching children to teaching adults. I share my religion with my neighbors and my coworkers by answering questions and volunteering information when appropriate. I try to make sure that people know the truth of my religion by the way I treat them and live my life.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Wendy
God is no respecter of persons. Men and women were created equal. We all have different personalities and abilities. Each of us is best suited to our own lifestyle and set of tasks. I have been a career women, a mother, a daughter, a working wife, a house wife. My husband has worked and been a house husband. He is better suited for working, providing, and protecting. He is happier when he can take care of the external needs of the home. He is an excellent cleaner, but he is an unhappy meal planner. Our home functions best when I am able to be home, at least part-time. I enjoy managing the home and seeing that the day to day operations of the home are taken care of. We are happier when we are each able to do that which is best suited to us. I do not want the responsibilities of my husband, they are not things that are suited to me and my husband would never be able to handle such things as childbirth. I love my profession and have enjoyed the career that I have had, but I would never trade my family and home for work. I am willing to work as needed to aid my family, but we are all happier when my focus is home, with just a little side of work. My husband is not better than me, he is not worth more than me. It is when we sit down and realize that each person is unique and that we all together can make things work that we know God made us each a piece of the puzzle, and there is no one piece that is better than any other.
