Hi I'm Mandy

I am a California girl born and raised. I am a Triathlete, a wife, a mother, and coach of many sports and I am Mormon.

About Me

 I am a 32 year old wife and mother of four and in 2009 I became a triathlete! Just your average girl, doing average things. When I first got the triathlon spark within I thought I had gone crazy. Nope!!! I was just inspired. Inspired to swim, inspired to bike, inspired to run and I am inspired by other men and women who are just average like me who do the same!

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into a mormon family. I always loved the way I felt at church and at home when studying and living the gospel. It wasn't until I was in High School that I knew I needed to decide if I would live the Gospel fully for the rest of my life. I took the challenge and read the Book of Mormon. It took the entire school year. That year of school was the hardest year in my life. Many friends tried to convince me that I was a member of the wrong church. After I finished the Book of Mormon, I prayed to know if it was true and the answer came so strong and so real that I knew without a doubt that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was Christ true church! This Gospel has blessed my life and my families lives in so many ways!

How I live my faith

 Being a Mormon isn't a Sunday only gig. We are Mormon everyday of our lives. We are given opportunities to serve others by accepting callings and perform service throughout the week. I have accepted many callings throughout my life, my favorite being primary music chorister. SImply because I got to spend my Sundays teaching and listening to the children sing. I have also had the opportunity to serve in the Young Women's organization as a leader, and in the Relief Society presidency. My hope is that people know what I believe by the way I live my life everyday of my life.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is the greatest women's organization to be a part of on this earth! We are here to help relieve! If you just had a baby, We Can Help! If you lost a loved one, We Can Help! If you're lonely, We can so totally help! The Relief Society is so incredible because each sister is cared for, prayed for and watched over at all times. Recently at the age of 33 I had a stroke. I am young and in shape, but was dealt some tricky genes so I ended up in the hospital. Within 24 hours my kitchen had been cleaned, there was lots of yummy food in my fridge and so many phone calls and cards were made out of love and concern. It was such a strong testimony to me of the love and sisterhood we build as we serve others together. I am so thankful for an organization that works so effectively at blessing so many lives in quiet ways daily. Show more Show less
