Hi I'm Wendy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 57 year old mother of four and grandmother of 2 with a new grandchild due to arrive any day. My husband and I have been married for almost 38 years. I was 19 when we married. I did not attend college but help my husband get his Engineering Degree . I was a stay at home mom so I babysat for other peoples children and then worked at Dairy Queen in the evenings. All four of our children attended my husband's college Graduation-the oldest was 7 and the youngest was 1. I have been working at a job for the past 12 years helping people to embrace a health lifestyle. I love my job very much, but the most important thing to me is my family. I love spending time with them. My husband and I love to camp and hike.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I were baptized together when we had been married about 1 1/2 years and were expecting our first baby. We wanted a church to raise our family in. My father's cousin was a mormon Bishop and he made arrangements for the missionaries to teach us. During the lessons I had a very peaceful feeling that I had found what I was looking for. All the puzzle pieces were finally fitting together. We have been Mormon for over 36 years now. I can't imagine my life without it. Learning about my Savior and his Atonement has been such a blessing in my life. It has helped me through some very difficult times. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I have that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who knows me and loves me.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to serve in the Church in two different capacities; I am a music director in our Sunday women's meeting. I love being able to choose song's appropriate to the lesson which is going to be taught as music has always been a very important part of my life. I also have the opportunity to work as a Chaplain at the Women's Federal Correctional facility not far from here. Each week two of us travel to the prison to meet with the female inmates to bring them messages of hope. We do our best to uplift them and to help them to see that it is possible to change the course of their lives by following the teachings of our Savior.
