Hi I'm Wendy

I am a wife and mother of 4 beautiful children. I'm a lunch lady. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love working with the youth of the church. I went to BYU Provo and met my husband there. Alot of people call me crafty. I like to sew. I have 4 wonderful children who bring me great joy. I went to school to be a dental assistant. I worked for 14 years as an assistant. When I had my 3rd child I quit working to be a full time mom. As my kids grew up and started school, I decided to go back to work. I am now back to work as a lunch lady. I work when my children are in school and I have the summers off. It is the best of both worlds.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a mormon in Utah. I thought everyone was a mormon. It wasn't until I went to college that I found out that mormons are a minority. I always beleived the chruch was true. I relied on my parents testimony. I loved them and I never wanted to make them unhappy. It wasn't until I was married and living in another state that I realized that I needed to get a testimony for myself. It was a slow and gradual process. I continued to go to chruch and serve in my callings. A few years after I was married I was feeling pretty low. I felt lonely and unsure of myself. I was doing everything I thought I should and yet I was struggling. I missed all my family back home. One day while I was sitting in church, I was pretty down. I felt someone sit next to me. I turned to look but there was no one there. Then someone put there arms around me. There was no one there physically and yet I knew who it was. My grandfather past away shortly after I was married. It was him. He held me as I cried. My husband didn't know what was going on. I couldn't talk about it for weeks. It was to personal. I told him later. I knew that the Lord had granted me this wonderful experience to help me with my testimony and to let me know that I was loved and important to him. It is that experience that keeps my faith in Jesus Christ alive and well with me. I don't know why I was prevledge to have this special experience but I hold it dear and us it to give me strength.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is as easy as breathing to me. It has been part of me for all of my life. In a world where we are being told to do what feels good and don't think about the consequences, It frees me. I don't have to wonder "what if" because I know that how we are taught and who we are comes from my eldest brother Jesus Christ. I have been blessed with great Visiting teachers through out my life. They are in tune to the spirit and act upon it. When I need to talk or if life is busy they are there with meals or just a friendly chat. Some of my life long friends have come to me through Visiting teaching. I have worked with the youth most of my married life. It is through there example and their testimonies that I developed my testimony. As I continue to go to church and work with the youth my testimony is strenghtened. When there are hard and trying times in my life I rely on the Savior to get me through it. My testimony contnues to grow as I serve others.
