Hi I'm Wendy

I started a foundation working in the Philippines, Thailand and India. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm a mother of five, ages 22-13. I enjoy skiing, the outdoors, running and family outings. I recently wiped out my right arm on a black diamond and have been doing rehab for it this past year. That has taught me a lot about patience, endurance and perseverance! I run a foundation that supports women and children in underdeveloped countries. And I LOVE LIFE!

Why I am a Mormon

 I was raised as a Catholic, my parents joined the church when I was younger. Going through my teenage years in an area that was not highly populated by LDS youth was difficult. It seems like anytime my own testimony of the gospel starts to falter, I read an Ensign article, say a prayer, talk with a friend, and the spirit whispers to me the truthfulness of the restored gospel. Over and over again. And for that I am so grateful. Every year I seem to draw closer to my Father in Heaven, in spite of the temptations and trials that constantly rage around my family.

How I live my faith

 I serve as the ward missionary in my ward. This is a recent calling that I've never done before, and I love it! I never served a mission and it has been spectacular to interact with others, share my testimony, and inspire and edify them, as they do me. I have found it to be one of my favorite callings. I have served in YW, RS, SS and girls camps, all of which are rewarding, but being out there every week, visiting with members and non-members has literally transformed my life. For myself, I have found that I focus on the Lord more on a daily basis.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

 We know that we are sons and daughters of our Father in Heaven, who wants the best for us long term. Avoiding things of an addictive nature allows us to be and feel our best. It also allows us to be more in control of our carnal appetites and thoughts. Show more Show less
