Hi I'm Sandie

I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, cancer survivor and love spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am first generation LDS and like Nephi I was raised by "goodly parents". I was adopted at birth and grew up in Western New York State. I married a great man and we have five adult children (3 are mine and 2 are his!!) and nine of the most wonderful grandchildren in the world!!. Three of my children and eight of my grandchildren live next door and/or across the street from me. It brings me such great joy to have my grandchildren near and to be a part of their daily lives. I work part-time from home for my son's company. I love to read, sing, scrapbook, make greeting cards and research my family history. The best day of the week for me is Saturday's when I serve in the Atlanta Temple with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I was in my early 20's, married with two little boys, when two missionaries knocked on my front door one hot August Wednesday afternoon and introduced me to the Gospel. That day changed my life forever and I will be eternally grateful to those two young men. I know that I am a child of a loving Heavenly Father. I have felt the Savior's love for me and I am so very thankful for that assurance.

How I live my faith

I express my love of music every week as I lead music in our Church meeting and sing in Choir. I love serving in the Temple every week, regularly volunteer at our local food pantry and do my visiting teaching assignment. At different times in my life I have held positions of leadership and that has helped me develop my talents and knowledge. Like one of my son's and two of our grandchildren, I'd like to someday serve a full-time mission with my husband. I try to follow in My Savior's footsteps, to obey His commandments and serve my fellow man.
