Hi I'm Mary Woody

I grew up in California and I went to the Mormon church by myself. Now I love Arizona and I go to church with my whole family.

About Me

I'm 48 and I love being a Mom (and a Grandma.) In college I loved to waterski now, our family loves to wakeboard. I love softball & soccer now, I'm a football mom and coach. I had a hard childhood and I am so lucky to be a Mormon,to be able to have a guide to raise my children healthy and whole.

Why I am a Mormon

I have famiy history of Mormoms but, my parents did not attend. I went a little by myself as a child. When I meet my future husband and we saw so many of our peers drinking and doing drugs. We choose to have a better life for our children. So we went to a Mormon church to check it out. We have 6 kids now and love or life. We love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and do our best to teach or kids. I sometimes wonder how bad my life might have been. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and stand amazed at what he did for me.

How I live my faith

I'm not super talented but, I do what I can. I have taught the youth and planned fun service activities recently, we made little bean bags for the local hospital ICU newborn unit. Kids learn to love through service. I really love cubscouts and working in the nursery. I love to do whatever is asked because when we are serving each other we are serving the Lord.
