Hi I'm Wendi

I grew up in Wisconsin. I'm a wife, mother, and friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the mom to four great kids who keep me super busy. I like to run, shop, eat chocolate, and I try to make time to read. I don't really like to cook or clean but I do it anyway. I'm involved in the PTO and I love to be in my kids' schools. I love to laugh and I'm not very graceful, so often find myself laughing at the crazy things I do. I taught high school math in California but stopped teaching when I became a mom. Now I love to tutor kids in math - I love seeing the light go on when they finally understand. I have moved around a bit in the United States, but I dream of living in another country. I don't travel much right now, but if time and money would allow, I would take my family and travel all over the world.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was taught by my parents who were both baptized into the Mormon church the year I was born. But I think everyone who is taught something as a child eventually has to test it out on his or her own. I came to know that what I had been taught was real and true once I left home to go to college. I was very homesick and lonely, and I found comfort and peace as I prayed and read the scriptures - both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I learned for myself that I do have a Heavenly Father who loves me and cares about all the little things in my life. I also learned that the Bible and Book of Mormon have answers to my questions and concerns today if I read them prayerfully.

How I live my faith

 I have the opportunity to plan regular activities for the women in our congregation to give us an opportunity to come together and strengthen and support each other, so we can all come closer to Christ. One of my favorite activities has been going to a care center in our neighborhood with several moms and preschoolers. We have a monthly story time there, and the residents LOVE to watch our kids dance and sing. It brings them joy, and us joy and we get to know each other and build a bridge over the generation gap.
