Hi I'm Sandee

I'm a wife of a hardworking husband. I'm a mother to the sweetest boy who has spina bifida. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

This year has been quite busy for me. In a three month span I had a baby boy, graduated from college, and finished my first year teaching elementary school. All three have greatly influenced where my future is taking me. I loved working in the school and interacting with the students daily. I taught a combined 5th/6th grade class. They had such spunky personalities and we enjoyed learning together. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and a teaching license. I know it will influence how I raise my family and encourage me to play an active role in the public school system throughout my life. My little boy was born with spina bifida. His condition was not diagnosed prenatally, so we have been working hard to learn how to care for his extra needs. He is a happy boy and I love seeing his developing personality. I enjoy water and snow skiing and going to sporting events (any kind really). I have always had a passion for the arts. I continue to teach myself oil painting, I will dance anything when given the opportunity, and I love theater. I have performed musicals, improvisation, and Shakespeare and enjoy it all. One day I hope to travel to all 7 continents; I have only been to 4 so far.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe that this is Christ's church on the earth today. I had the opportunity to travel to the Holy Land and study in depth the works and life of Jesus Christ. I lived there for four months. I already knew He was my Lord and Savior before I went, but I came to understand it on a whole new level while I was there. We studied the lessons He taught in the places He taught them. We learned the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a restoration of the church established by Jesus Himself when He was on the earth.

How I live my faith

Each member of the ward volunteers their time by serving each other in various roles. There are teachers, leaders, activity planners, and other jobs. Throughout the years I have had several different callings within the ward. I have had several opportunities to teach the women of the ward, and I have always enjoyed how much I have learned during those lessons. Currently, I am in charge of coordinating and selecting the hymns during our Sacrament service. I recognize the role I play in setting the proper tone for our meeting.
