Hi I'm Sandy
I'm a Mormon.
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.
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.
