Hi I'm Wendy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, mom of four kids and a speech language pathologist. I enjoy camping, reading, cooking and being organized.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an LDS family in a small town in Southern Alberta, Canada. I knew from a young age that I had been placed on this earth and in this family for a reason. There is no one else like me. When I was a young adult I told my bishop that my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was something I held most dear to me and was considered my most prized possession. I had always strived to live the commandments and follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost but at that time I knew that all the teachings and standards I possessed were because I knew that it was all true. I knew that Jesus Christ died and was resurrected for me. I knew that the Book of Mormon was true and that all the living prophets really were prophets. I knew that even though members, myself included, were not perfect the gospel principles were perfect and true. I prayed for confirmation that all I had studied and believed was true. The confirmation came as a feeling of peace to my soul. This has become the blueprint for my life. When times get tough I can always fall back on that feeling of peace that I have received when I have prayed for confirmation and know that through it all I have made the right decision. I have utilized this formula of praying for a confirmation when I have needed to make any important decisions in my life. Continual prayer, study and striving to live the commandments and standards of the gospel have helped me to make correct decisions in my life and allowed me to have a strong and helthy body and an active and invigorated mind.

How I live my faith

My family is my life and we have scripture study, prayer and serve and work together in the church. We attend church meetings every Sunday and help wherever possible. We strive to provide our children with good role models and make a point of socializing with other LDS families when possible. We make it a point to keep our standards high in all social and work situations. Being LDS is a way of life me and not just a Sunday choice.
