Hi I'm Wende

I am a 4th Generation Mesa,AZ native. My Great Grandfather crossed the plains. I have deep LDS roots. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 7 Siblings. I grew up in a family who was very close and had alot of extended family around. My cousins and sisters were my best playmates growing up. I never doubted my LDS beliefs, they always felt right. As I became a mother of 5, I have had to learn how to put those beliefs in to work. I am not a perfect mother or wife, but I know the important values that the LDS Church teaches and pray that I can instill them in my children and that they may have a desire to learn for themselves. I also love to serve others and find great joy in service. My life has been a difficult road this past year, one that surprised me, and came from out of nowhere. I don't know how I would have survived if I did not have My Savior carrying me at times.

Why I am a Mormon

My knowledge in the Atonement and God's plan for an Eternal Family has helped me through the most difficult of my life's experiences. I know Heavenly Father loves me, I know I am His daughter, and I want to live with Him again someday.

How I live my faith

I have served with the Youth ages 12-18 (girls) for much of my adulthood. I know that I am called to teach them and advise them, the Youth have such strong Spirits. I find myself learning from them, and "looking up to them" as they stay strong in a world where there are many distractions.
