Hi I'm Cindy Barnes

I am a wife, a mother of four. I know I am a daughter of God and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I teach piano lessons to over 20 students because I believe there can never be too many piano players in the world. I have been married for 21 years and love being a wife. I have four amazing teenagers and love being a mom. In my spare time I love reading novels and spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon and was baptized when I was 8 years old. Although I grew up in the Church, I have struggled to know for myself if the things I was being taught were true. I have come to know that I am truly loved by a wonderful Father in Heaven. He knows each one of us and is aware of the trails and struggles we have to endure. I also know that I have a Savior who is my older brother, who also loves me and who died for me. This knowledge is a wonderful gift to me. I know that I will never be alone. My Savior will lift me and strengthen me in times when I feel alone. As I read from the scriptures and as I have listened to holy prophets, I am able to feel the Holy Ghost testify of Him. In a world of such uncertainty and unrest, I hold fast to my testimony of the gospel. It is what gives me peace and joy and hope.

How I live my faith

I have the great blessing to work with the young women ages 14-16. They are amazing girls who are still trying to find where they fit in the world. They try to live the standards of the church even though they are critisized and laughed at for their beliefs. They are strong and happy young women who love the Lord. They love attention and thrive when you take time to support them in the various sporting and the muscial events they participate in. We spend time together every Wedneday nights at activities where we learn different skills and strengthen each other. I am truly blessed to know each of these girls. I also try and serve those around. I find that I can forget about my worries as I help those around me.
