Hi I'm Wendy

I grew up all over the western United States. I homeschool my children and am very much in to preparedness. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a mom of 3 with children ranging from 5-20 years old. The privilege is mine of staying home and taking care of my family and homeschooling my youngest. Before I stopped working outside the home, I was a Human Resource Director. I was born and raised in the Church, but had to go through my own conversion after being less active for several years. I have been a single mom. I was raised by a single mom and moved around a lot, living in most of the western United States, including Alaska. My hobbies are reading non-fiction books and working on preparedness.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church, coming from pioneer heritage on my mother's side. My father and his family were converted when my father was in high school. It is easy to take advantage of the wonderful things we are blessed with when we are born and raised in the Church. Out of curiosity, I learned about most other religions. I never felt they had ALL of the gospel. I always found something, sometimes a lot of somethings, missing from each religion. Too many holes, too many things didn't make sense or contradicted each other. When I reached adulthood, I chose to stay a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After marrying a less active member of the Church, I became less active myself for several years. It was hard getting up and getting the kids ready for Church by myself. While I was less active I was not happy. Nothing seemed to fill the void in my life. Even though I had a family, was working in a career I loved, I just could not find peace and happiness within myself. After two very startling dreams, I decided I needed to turn my life around and go back to church. When I did, I found the peace and happiness my heart longed for. I also was finally converted to the gospel completely. I always had a testimony of the gospel, but wasn't fully converted. This time I was and I have never waivered since. I am grateful for the gospel. I am thankful my family can be together forever. I am thankful for the great sacrifice our Lord made for each of us. I am very grateful for the atonement, for the ability to have my sins forgiven me. A deep peace and joy can be found in His gospel. In a world so chaotic, I know I can find comfort there.

How I live my faith

I believe in living my faith in all areas of my life. At work I was often the only one not drinking, drinking tea or coffee, smoking, going to R rated films or using profanity. I look for service opportunities throughout my day. Through the women's organization, we have many opportunities to serve church members as well as members of our community. I love service! I have served in many areas of the Church. I have taught Sunday School for the 1.5-3 year olds, the 4-11 year olds, the 12-17 year old girls and adult women. I currently oversee the women's organization in our congregation. I have coached sports for youth girls.
