Hi I'm Tuesday Wynne

I'm a Star Trek fan, a recovering Anorexic and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Tuesday. Yeah, weird, I know. I'm going to school right now studying behavioral sciences. I'm not quite sure where I'm going with it yet, but someplace great I'm sure. I have two sisters, one older and one younger, and we definitely act like sisters, with our ups and our downs. But, I love them. I'm also a recovering anorexic, so I can relate to you if you have an eating disorder. I've struggled with it for a while, but I'm on an uphill trek right now. I'm starting to learn how to live with food in my life again, and I have some pretty awesome friends to help me. I also play several instruments. I play the flute and the violin, and I'm learning the piano. I was blessed with a musical talent I guess. I love music!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well, that's easier to understand if you understand how my life was when I joined the church. I was going through a really rough month a few years ago. I had failed my chemistry class, was fighting with my sisters and was on the verge of losing my job. My friend was always so happy and I wanted a part of that joy, She brought me to the Mormon church and I took the lessons with missionaries for a long time. They taught me about what hey believed and gave me a copy of the Book of Mormon. I didn't want to read it for a while. But I noticed that as I learned about the Church and what the people who were a part of the church stood for, I was happier and my life went more smoothly. I liked what I heard and I believed in the basic principles of the Church. I never thought that I would be Mormon, but after a particularly hard day at wok, I received my first blessing from the missionaries and I felt this strange sort of peace come over me. It was a feeling unlike any that I had ever felt before. I was calm and happy and my soul felt at rest for the first time since I was a child. I realized that I was doing a good thing by taking the lessons. I started praying about them, asking God if I was doing the right thing, if the Scriptures were true, if I should be Mormon. One night I got an answer, clear as a voice in my head I heard Heavenly Father tell me that I was right. I was in the right place. I decided to get baptized right after that and haven't regretted that decision.

How I live my faith

I used to volunteer for the Community Food Bank. I'd help the Food Bank feed over 600 less fortunate people in my community. That was before I moved. Now, I work in the local hospital at the snack bar. I haven't been here in Washington very long, but I'm really involved in my ward. I an the Ward Historian, so I get to take pictures of everyone at all of our activities and keep a sort of scrapbook for the records, so that people can see what we have been doing. I'm also on the Activities Committee, so I get to help plan out the fun stuff we do, like Haunted Houses around Halloween or the big Christmas dinner. I just got called to be the Supervisory Visiting Teaching Coordinator. I know, that's a lot to hear. But really it means that I get to help set up Visiting Teaching. That's where us women go and teach a little spiritual thought to some other women in the Church, make sure they are okay, and really just fellowship them. I'm really excited that I get to help set up these things. I read the scriptures aloud every night with my roommate. I also hang out with my church friends on Tuesday nights all the time. I love to help other people, so I babysit for free all the time. I try to help everyone who needs it, so I get to do lots of service. It's a really great feeling.
