Hi I'm Cindy

I am a mother of four, love anything with white chocolate on it, and enjoy watching the rain. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spend a lot of my time being a mom of four fabulous children. It gets hectic, but it is something I wouldn't traid for anything in the world. I enjoy watching their imaginations at work as they play together. I have recently found a new love for exercise. I ran my first 10K at the beginning of 2011. The last time I ran a significant distance was the mile back in high school PE class. So it turned out to be such an amazing feeling to set a goal like this and actually acheive it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a mormon and therefore have had the opprotunity to build upon a testimony that my parents first planted when I was young. However, I don't think it was until that testimony really was put to the test, that I really began to KNOW that what was first planted in me as a youth was actually true. Unfortunately, my family has had several deaths over the years. When I was thirteen I lost my older sister and her four year old son in a car accident, later came the loss my older brother to colon cancer a few years ago, and then most recently the loss of my mom to pancreatic cancer this year. I have been asked a couple of times by others who have looked on the path of bumps my family has walked over the years, how is it that we are still hopeful? As I have thought about that question, I've realized it it purely as a result of the knowledge and testimony I have of this gospel. Although it was and still is extremely hard to lose someone so close, I know that I have the opprotunity to embrase and be with them again. It is Jesus Christ that makes that possible. The sacrifice and attonement He offers me so that I can return with my Father in Heaven and with family that has passed on is what gives me strength. I have chosen to live as a Mormon because it gives me hope and strength to carry on in good cheer no matter what life throws at me.

How I live my faith

In living my faith, I have the wonderful opprotunity to participate in the youth program the church has organized and I absolutely love working with the young women in our area. I have been able join these wonderful young ladies in service and in learning both life skills and spiritual skills that will help them better their lives. We are also taught to be helpful, kind, courteous, peacemakers, honest, and virtuous among many others. Those are attributes I strive to be as I live my faith.
