Hi I'm Wyndie

I'm a wife and the mother of three fine young men. I love to read and enjoy live theater. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've enjoyed working in a variety of different fields over the course of my life, including dentistry, locksmithing, and education. I live and play in the mountains of Arizona. I love nature and especially enjoy hiking and star gazing. I'll read practically anything, from the back of a cereal box to classic literature. I've participated in live theater throughout my life and love watching everything from high school productions to Broadway shows. I also enjoy crocheting and baking. In addition to my family, the loves of my life are my cats and Disneyland. My dad taught me that if you are going to do something, you should do it well; my mother taught me that finding the humor in any situation is the best way to put it in perspective.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Like many life-long members, my conversion has been line upon line, precept upon precept, over the course of many years. As I have done my best to keep the Lord's commandments and follow the example of Jesus Christ, I have gained a very real testimony of Christ. Though He is the Savior of the world, I know He takes a personal interest in my trials and struggles. He has lifted and strengthened me in times of need. He has lighted my path and lightened my burdens. I know my Savior lives; I know He loves me.

How I live my faith

I enjoy working with youth of all ages; I've coached soccer, worked with Cub and Boy Scouts, and helped children learn to read. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a young person realize they can do or be more than they thought they could. I know that Christ has a special place in his heart for children of all ages, and I feel closer to Him when I serve them.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

This question always brings a smile (or maybe it's more like a smirk) to my face. I've never understood why so many people believe that all Mormon women are quiet, meek little things who are "required" to be subservient and submissive to their husbands. I come from a long line of outspoken and opinionated Mormon women, and my husband values my honesty and appreciates my intellectual independence. We have always been equal partners in our marriage, discussing each other's thoughts and feelings before coming to a concensus when making major life decisions or parenting our three sons. While you can find male chauvenists in all regions, cultures, and religions, my religion teaches that women are daughters of God and that they are to be respected and treated as such.
