Hi I'm Mindi

I haven't saved the world, but I've found something that can. I'm a mormon.

About Me

 I'm a 30 something stay-at-home mom and writer. I'm also an amateur photographer. I love to read, play volleyball, learn new things, travel and spend time with my family. I have three boys and a princess!

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a mormon because I need spirituality in my life for balance and personal progression. The doctrine and truths I've found here require sacrifice. A LOT of sacrifice of my entire person. For me this is critical in my refining process--in becoming a person who can look at her Savior's face when the day comes and not feel ashamed of her life on earth. I also want a personal relationship with Christ and feel that all the tools I need to have this are here for me if I choose to live what I know. I also want to rid myself of hypocracy and teach my children how to live admirably as well. The gospel provides that framework for me and allows me all the spiritual knowledge and support I choose to find through the process of personal revelation. And the fact that this knowledge is available to anyone is liberating and equalizing and comforting to me as a woman. Being a mormon is hard work and is a lifestyle change rather than a Sunday only thing. However, this is where the appeal is for me. It's like committing to healthy eating habits and exercize versus dieting. It's work but you'll love who you become if you give it all you've got. I know God lives and loves us. I know Christ is our Savior. I know we have modern day prophets on the earth today. I know that we have scripture and other tools to guide us through this life. And I know that I am happy and peaceful when I live the truths I have found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is the essence of true discipleship for me.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by volunteering with the youth the young women in our congregation and raising my four children with strong values. I also visit other women in my congregation as we look out for each other. I visit two other women who are not mormons but who enjoy visits and friendship. My husband and I visit people as well and help them both with spiritual and physical necessities. I try to talk to people who ask me about my faith in a casual, non-threatening way. I help out at my children's school and attend community functions to do my part.
