Hi I'm Cadi

I married an artist, we had 4 kids, we started an Arts Studio. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married, have kids, a dog, and have run an Art Studio with my husband for a decade. We build parade floats, large props, museum exhibits, and whatever else our clients ask of us. I juggle home, kids, and running the office. If I had a choice of what to do with my free time I'd love to go to the ocean, go on a bike ride with my kids, work in the yard, decorate my home, or make my family something yummy to eat.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon? Being a Mormon gives my life clarity. When I am the most active with my Church activity, reading the scriptures, praying daily, I feel a crystal clarity that is hard to find from other sources. I cherish the comfort that comes from knowing where I lived before Earth, why I am here, and where I am going. I was raised by 2 great people and I am the youngest of 7. I have always had a desire to know why I am here on this Earth. I've always had a deep desire to know the truth and act on it. I gained a belief and testimony that I belonged to the The Church of Jesus Christ, by reading the scriptures and prayer. I asked God if the Church was true. The answer was an undeniable yes. I have relied on my own belief ever sense. I was very lucky to find a husband that believed the same as me. We both wanted kids and wanted to be happy. It was a perfect combo. Life is hard. Marriage is hard. It isn't easy just because you love each other, it takes a lot of work and perseverance. Running a business with a spouse can be very taxing on a marriage and a family. Thankfully, we are both headed in the same direction of having a family and being happy. We work on it daily. I am grateful for family prayer, us all kneeling together at night. The sweet prayer one of my kids will utter before bed asking that a neighbor or friend will feel better, or that we will have good-good dreams. Life is good. Life is worth it. I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help me see clarity in God's purpose even when times are hard.

How I live my faith

One thing that I love about being a Mormon is that everyone has a job in the Church. There is no paid clergy and you never know what your job is going to be. You are "called" or simply asked to fulfill a need in the area that you live. For the last 3 years I have worked with the Primary, which is the 3-11 years old's. I love it! I am always gratefully happy that I keep getting the same job. I teach the 11 years old right now. They are bright and jumpy. They keep me on my toes consistently.
