Hi I'm Sandy

I went from 4 seasons in Colorado, to the "dry heat" of Arizona and now live in the "misty rain" of Seattle. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom with 7 children ages 19 months to 15 years. I like to play sports for exercise. Volleyball and Floor Hockey are currently high on my list, but I also play Basketball. I love to read and enjoy having a Game Day with my family when children are out of school and my husband doesn't have to work. I completed my college education before I was married, and subsequently supported my husband while he went to school. He graduated shortly (1 month) before Child number 2 arrived, and I went from a full-time employee to a work from home Computer Consultant. I only worked in my "free time" (Me putting myself in a time-out for sanity). My oldest child was diagnosed with Autism - high-functioning Asperger Syndrome at age 3. While his diagnosis was changed to ADHD at age 5, he still has some Autistic traits. We just call him quirky. He helped give us a crash-course on parenting skills and techniques that are effective and can be applied to all our children (hence we didn't stop at 2). I love staying home with my children and teaching and sharing with them the ups and downs of life. The main goal being to teach them how to be productive members of society.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found great peace and joy in my life through following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I have a knowledge of who I am and what my purpose here on earth is. I believe that God spoke with Prophets long ago and that he still does. I believe he loves all of us and continues to communicate with us personally through prayer. I love my family and want the best for them now and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I want my family to have strong testimonies of Jesus Christ and his Atonement, so I try to be an example to them. I encourage my children to read the scriptures daily and to pray. We pray and read the scriptures together daily as a family. We talk about Heavenly Father's commandments and work hard at obeying them. I try to do what Jesus would do and offer service and help to those in need. I might prepare a meal for someone who is sick, watch someone's children, or just be a shoulder to lean on. I offer assistance and support to other members as they work with the children - whether on Sunday's or during the week at Cub Scouts or other activites.
