Hi I'm Sandy

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in California. I am married to a wonderful man, and we have an amazing family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have wonderful children and beautiful grandchildren. The top priority in my life has been to raise our children, and now to be a really great grandma! I enjoy time with family and friends, organizing our home, cooking, reading, bicycling, and serving others. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings great joy into my life, even in the face of hardships. I am a Mormon because I know that our Savior, Jesus Christ, and Heavenly Father love us, individually, and they want for us to have true meaningful happiness and to return to live with them. I am grateful to my parents for listening to the missionaries when I was an infant, for changing their lives for the better, and paving the way for me to receive all the blessings I have because of my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Mormon because it is true. 

How I live my faith

I find great happiness in helping and serving others. For many years I have worked with the women in the church and have great love and admiration for them. I also take time daily to read the scriptures and to ponder what the gospel means to me in my life. I pray on a daily basis also. My goal is to continually improve my relationship with Jesus Christ. 

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We increase our faith in Jesus Christ as we do other things in life. We exercise our bodies to gain strength and to be healthier. So it is with faith, we decide to have faith in prayer, so we pray more fervently. As we pray more fervently we feel closer to God, our Father. If we want to have more faith in Jesus Christ we study His teachings, and we follow His invitation to follow Him. As we do our faith increases and our love for His mission (His birth, life, teachings, atonement, resurrection) increases, and before we know it we not only believe, we know. Show more Show less
