Hi I'm Wendy
I'm a Mormon. I have lived in Arizona my whole life and I'm proud to be a Mormon.
I am a stay at home wife and mother, I have 5 children with 4 still at home.I have been married to my prince charming for almost 24 years!!! Even though there are challenges with being a mom and wife, I wouldn't change it for anything. I am a cosmetologist that doesn't do hair, but loves to do pedicures. Strange, but true! I was adopted when I was 3 days old and was raised in the church. I found my Birth Mother and three half sisters a year ago and it has been the best experience! They are not members of this church, but have had an open mind when I have explained the church to them. I am currently the Primary President in my ward, which is over the 18 months -11 year old children.
Even though I have been a member all my life, I don't know where I would be without the Church in my life. Being adopted has really made me reflect on what could have been if I had stayed with my Birth Mom. She is an excpetional woman, but is not a member. What she did for me by giving me to the wonderful parents I have , was the greatest gift she could have ever given me. The Gospel has given me the confidence I need to be a wife, mother, daughter, friend and aunt. I live the teachings and commandments as well as I can. I'm not perfect by any means, but I try to live each day to return to my loving Heavenly Fathers arms. I know we are lead and guided by a prophet of God, he would never lead us astray. This church is a loving church and I find strength to overcome the everyday trials that the world has.
I am over the 18 months to 11 year old children in my ward. These beautiful children make me want to be a better person and leader. It is a challenge at times, but with the Lords help and knowing he is there, gives me the strength to do anything I am asked to do. Hearing their sweet voices when they sing or hear their testimonies of the gospel, lifts my spirits. By being their leader, I feel that I need to be a good example to them. I want them to see that what I tell them, I will also do it. I see them in the grocery stores and I can give them a hug and let them know how important they are and that Jesus loves them unconditionally. I am also very involved in our school district. I take tickets at the home games, and this gives me the opportunity to talk with people in our community. I love this job, even though its only for a few months a year. I want others to see how happy I am and try to brighten their day.
