Hi I'm Sandy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 75 years old and have been a Mormon for 15 years - I grew up on a wheat and cattle ranch in Montana came to Arizona because of the health of our oldest child - worked in Arizona for Motorola for 30 years starting on the assembly line and working up to be a circuit designer. Have a husband who joined the church this year at the age of 78. We have 4 children - 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren - I am a quilter and have made heirloom quilts for all of my grandchildren. Have done a lot of work on genealogy on my family and my husbands family. I am a busy happy person and wonder now that I am retired how I ever had time to work.

Why I am a Mormon

I spent some time in Hawaii on the campus of BYU Hawaii for several summers and noticed the difference in the attitude - respect - demeanor - of all of the students there as compared to the other colleges I have ever seen. It was a remarkable difference. The difference between these young people as compared to the youth of the church that I belonged to - I was impressed and after some time studying the church - decided that was where I needed to be. My daughter and my Granddaughter and I were all baptized on the same day. My husband and our great granddaughter were baptized on the same day - I guess this is a family affair. I have seen since then so many things that make me so glad to be a Mormon - I am in charge of a humanitarian group in my Ward and to see the attitude of charity and giving that this group has and all the many blessings that we get for all the work that we do is simply amazing. We do work for hospitals - cancer patients - newborns in need - orphanages - crisis centers - nursing homes and anyone else that we find in need of our services. I am grateful to be a part of this and all of the humanitarian projects that this church is doing throughout the world.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day and am glad to share it with anyone who is willing to listen. I share my knowledge of genealogy with all that ask for my help. We share our humanitarian work with anyone in need of our services. I try to be a good example to all of my family each and every day in all that I do. I am glad to say yes to any calling that is offered to me in my Ward and Stake even when it is sometimes out of my comfort zone as I know it will strengthen my testimony. I truly believe that being a Mormon and being a good follower of Jesus Christ is the main purpose in my life. I am so blessed to be a member of my Ward - my Stake and to be a Mormon!!!
