Hi I'm Wendy

I serve breakfast for dinner more often than I should. I get overdue fines at the public library and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife to an amazing man and mom to four amazing kids. I like to cook, more specifically I like to bake. Cookies, brownies, cake, cinnamon rolls- you name it. Unfortunately, I also have a HUGE sweet tooth which means if my kids aren't fast enough I can make a pretty big dent in my chocolate cake before they get their first piece. I wish I was a better cook of meals, especially dinner. I would love to hire someone to teach me how to make great tasting dinners! This is probably why I serve breakfast for dinner more often than I should. Waffles and eggs is a front runner in our dinner rotation. I like to be organized. But just because I LIKE to be organized, doesn't mean that I am. I make to do lists, lots of them, but I still forget to return our library books on time or send lunch money to school with my boys. I enjoy playing the piano. It is cheap therapy for me. When I am frustrated, I like to play fast and loud! When I am content, I will play soft and smooth. I love to spend time with my family, especially in the great outdoors. We love to go camping, hunting, and fishing. There is nothing better than watching a dad teach his child how to fish!

Why I am a Mormon

There is a spot in my heart reserved just for my children. It grows bigger everyday. I can't imagine my life without them. Gratefully, our loving Father in Heaven has provided a way for us to be with our families for eternity. If I strive to do my best each day; to be the best wife, mother, and friend that I can I will have the opportunity to return to our Father in Heaven and be with my family forever! This is Heavenly Father's plan for everyone! Because it isn't easy doing our best all the time, Heavenly Father has given us a Savior. He sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to earth to suffer for our sins- no matter how big or small. Through Jesus Christ's sacrifice, we can repent of our mistakes. This is what keeps me going everyday: the knowledge that if I falter, my Savior is there to comfort me and encourage me to get back up again.

How I live my faith

I get to work with the children in my ward. I'd like to say that I "teach" them but so often they are the ones that teach me. It amazes me how they know the stories from the scriptures so well. When we talk about faith, service or repentance, the children can give examples in their own lives of these basic gospel principles. It warms my heart to know that even at such a young age, these young children have a desire to choose the right. I get to participate in music time with the children also. Music is a great way to teach! When I see their glowing faces as they sing about their love for our Savior Jesus Christ, I can feel that love and it often brings me tears.
