Hi I'm Cyd

I am the oldest of 10 kids. I live in Maryland with my husband and three kids. I love books, music, and theatre. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom. I've worked in the past, but now I'm able to stay home and teach and take care of my three children. I love to learn about anything and everything. I have a BA in English with a Humanities minor. I love to read. I love music of all kind. I love theater. I love getting to know people. I love my family and my friends. I love to have a good time.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon church. My parents are Mormons. But there came a time in my life when I needed to know it was true and not just live on what my parents taught me. I prayed. I read the Bible and Book of Mormon. I researched. And I listened. I listened to other people, but most of all I listened to what I felt inside. I felt peace and joy and happiness and understanding of great worth, of priceless worth. One by one I prayed about each of the principles of the church. One by one I knew they were true. I felt it so strong. I am an intellectual and it would be easy to dismiss religious hokey-pokey. But I can't. I know this church is true, I know Joseph Smith was a prophet and that we are led by a modern day prophet today. I know Christ lives and I know he knows each one of us. I know the Book of Mormon is true. And I know that Heavenly Father loves me. Even though I don't always feel peace or joy in my life I cling to the things I know are true and they bring me comfort.

How I live my faith

 I try to follow Christ and love my neighbors, all my neighbors. I try to celebrate differences and embrace similarities. I teach the women of my church and plan activities for a large section of the church. I love to meet people and find out what they are passionate about. I work to see each person as a child of God.
