Hi I'm Cindy

I'm a wife, a mother, a grandmother. I am a friend and a sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to make people laugh. My goal is to make my kids roll their eyes, shake their heads, and say, "Oh mother." I love to hear other people laugh around me. It brings a smile to my face because I know that in that very instant, with all of the turmoils of life around them, they have a moment of sheer happiness. Laughter is the best medicine. I proved that this past year when I found out I had breast cancer. Although a very serious moment in my life, from day one, there were jokes and laughter. I knew that I was going to be okay. It was convincing my family and friends the challenge. But after time, they too fell into the laughter and smiles and jokes. It made the treatments go by better. It made life a little bit lighter especially when I lost my hair. It's been a eight months since my last chemo treatment. I'm well and cancer free. And, yes, I'm still laughing because seeing my hair grow back is ridiculously funny.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 12 years old the missionaries knocked on our door. My dad invited them in and we proceeded to take the discussions and joined the church. To be honest, I don't remember my testimony at that age. I do remember that my dad was my hero and what he thought was right and good, then I did too. Over the years I gained my own testimony of the gospel. I have drawn close to Heavenly Father often in prayer. I know without a doubt that I am a child of God. I'm not perfect by any means. Oh no. I have days when I do a self-assessment and wonder why those words came out of my mouth or why I did the things I chose to do. That is when I know that I have the opportunity to kneel down and speak to God and ask for forgiveness. And then get up and try harder the next day. Jesus Christ atoned for my sins. It's overwhelming to think what he went through for the love of his brothers and sisters. That alone spurs me to be more like Him and follow his example of charity and love.

How I live my faith

My current calling is Ward Bulletin Board Coordinator. It's a new calling for me and I'm trying to figure out how best to make it the best calling yet. Not being the most creative and crafy person, this job has given me a delightful challenge. My prior calling was working with the young women in our youth program. Probably one of my all time favorite callings!
