Hi I'm Cynthia

I'm a Mormon. I am a good cook, love to garden, and treasure family time.

About Me

I love reading NYT bestsellers, gardening, especially flowers and tomatoes and herbs. I enjoy cooking what I grow, and I own about 2000 cookbooks. My homemade breads are amongst my proudest achievements! I am also an avid Geocacher. Motherhood has been the best thing that ever happened to me too. My family are my strength.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe Christ is my Savior. When I make a decision I lean toward Him for wise council. I believe Christ is the Head of His church. The Church of Jesus Christ is HIS church. I believe this to the depth of my soul. This church has major focus on the family. And my children and husband and I have become blessed from our membership in the church.

How I live my faith

I love my participation in the church. I get to be a leader for our 8-9 year old girls. We meet twice a month for fun activities that help strengthen them and their families in many ways. I also get to teach the my fellow sisters in the church important lessons once a month on Sundays.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Family is very important in the church for more reasons than can be explained here. Holding the priesthood is just one of these reasons. Husbands act and bless their family with their priesthood, but wives benefit and honor the priesthood through their husbands. It is a symbiotic relationship. As I have participated in the church in various activities I have come to understand my importance as a woman in the church. There cannot be one without the other. Show more Show less
