Hi I'm Wendy

I grew up in New Zealand married and moved to Australia where I became a Mormon

About Me

I live in a hot and humid climate, near the beach with my husband. Our 5 children all live within a few minutes drive we have 14 grandchildren and 1 more expected in the coming year. I read I sew, I have a part time job and enjoy the company of my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert and made a great choice in my early twenties, to do something positive to preserve my family unit, at a time when we were struggling. I am overwhelmed with gratitude, for what my husband and I have been able to learn and change in our lives, the peace I feel that the life I lead is pleasing to God, the knowledge I have gained as I have prayerfully read the scriptures, and worked to give up the traits that hinder the growth of good character. The journey I have travelled has been hard work but full of Joy. How thankful I am for a Saviour who has paid the price for our sins, so that we can move forward at any point in our lives.My life has turned out so much better than I could have imagined.There have been some huge challenges and obstacles to overcome, but as I made the sacrifice to keep sacred covenants that I made with the Lord, I have been filled with joy.

How I live my faith

I serve as President of the Women's auxillary, and am responsible for the spiritual and temporal wellbeing of the women over 18, and reporting to our Bishop. I will only do this for a few years and then will be assigned something else, I have had many different assignments that have given me the opportunity to grow and progress and also influence and help others to do so. As I have served others I have learned to love them.

What is the Relief Society?

Relief Society is where the sisters of the church learn to serve each other and develop friendships, and give support in times of need. It helps to strengthen our families and to develop our relationship with the Saviour as we learn to apply the Saviour's teachings in our everyday lives. It builds character, for me it has been amazing to mix with wonderful women, who have been a great example to me, women both young and old particularly as I have observed their commitment to the gospel during their times of struggle and stress.
