Hi I'm Mindy

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, known also as a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being a mother to my two little ones. I love to do anything outdoors, running, painting, crafts, reading, and trying new things. I went to college at BYU-Idaho and graduated with my Elementary Education degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church and over the years have gained a knowledge that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I am incredibly grateful for the experiences that have helped me grow and understand that I am a valued daughter of God and that I can return to live with Him again. Being a member of the LDS church has blessed my life in so many ways, and I know that the principles of the Gospel are true.

How I live my faith

I have been called to be the first counselor in the women's group in my ward. It has been such an awesome experience. I get to plan and help carry out activities that can bring the sisters in the ward together and serve others. I've loved making so many friends along the way.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4). Show more Show less
