Hi I'm Sandy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a daughter, sister, niece, aunt, cousin, & friend. I'm a college student and a returned missionary. I love arts & crafts, baking, scrapbooking, dancing, swimming, & making people happy. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a member of this church because I know it teaches the truth. It teaches us the things we must do in this life in order to gain eternal happiness in the world to come. Although I've always believed that the teachings of this church are true, during my teenage years, my testimony wavered and it became difficult for me to live the way we are encouraged to live. I thought the "rules" were too strict for me. However, I realized that I was feeling more and more unhappy as my standards got lower. I decided it was time for a change and I earnestly sought for a testimony of this gospel. Through scripture study, prayer, and regular church attendance, my faith was strengthened. I gained a personal testimony of the gospel and a stronger relationship with my Savior. I no longer saw the church standards as rules, but rather guidelines and I began to follow them willingly. And as a result of all these things, I became truly happy. A few months after this experience, I gained a desire to share these truths with others so they too could feel the happiness that I feel. I was able to serve a full-time mission, teaching the gospel to the beautiful people in the Philippines. I am grateful for the happiness that the gospel brings to us as our Heavenly Father's children.

How I live my faith

I enjoy participating in church activities and volunteering to visit people with the full-time missionaries in this area. I always try to be an example to those around me.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

I strongly believe that as long as we have a solid relationship with our Savior, other important relationships in our life will fall into place. In order to have a solid relationship with the Savior, we must strive to live like him. If we are following the example of Jesus Christ, the people around us will always feel of our love and relationships will strengthen because of it. Show more Show less
