Hi I'm wendy

I was Utah born, married my dream, followed him as he served in the U.S. Army. I am a nurse for almost 40 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am the mother of 6 and grandmother of 13. I am a part time nurse, and a dedicated wife to a husband whom I adore for 40 years now. I love to sew, especially pillowcase dolls for friends and loved ones. Love to watch my grandkids when time permits. Love to bake, work in the Seattle temple monthly and love my ward.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to come from pioneer stock in the church. As a child I attended all my meetings and did all the activities for youth. I leaned on my parents testimony, until i was about 12 when i would go with my grandmother to temple square and work in the Bureau of Information. We would clean all the glass cases. During time alone i would venture out to the square. I knew that one day I wanted to enter that temple and I knew that Joseph Smith actually saw Christ and the Lord. I never read the Book of Mormon all the way through, until my first child was born. That Book still burns in my heart. The truth is there, the answers I needed jump out of those pages.

How I live my faith

My husband and I serve in the Seattle temple. We love the word of helping people become exalted. We also teach the temple preparedness classes to help those who are just getting ready to enter for the first time. I love the peace i feel there. I love the cleanliness and the spirit that consumes my soul. I can enter feeling exhausted, then work 6 to 12 hours and be renewed with strength.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

The temples are for all, but you must be prepared and worthy to enter. Having a faith in the Lord and having been baptized and living the principles of the gospel will give all access to eternal progression that the temple provides. Show more Show less
