Hi I'm Cindy

I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Massachusetts and attended a Protestant church but moved to west at age 20 shortly after I was married. I had also stopped going to church. We weren't headed for Utah but ended up there. When I called my folks to tell them where we were, they asked if I was going to become a Mormon. My instantaneous response was "NEVER!" After living in Utah for five years and settling into family life I began to realize something important was missing. Looking at my Mormon friends helped me to realize they seemed to have that "something." Shortly before my second daughter was born I was baptized. As they say, never say "NEVER!" That was the best decision I ever made - and we all know life is full of many important decisions.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was investigating the Church I struggled to know if Joseph Smith was really a prophet. I had read the Book of Mormon and was sure it was true. I was attending church on a regular basis and felt sure that most everything I was learning was true. After several months of study and a couple of days of intense pleading with the Lord to know if Joseph Smith was actually who I was told he was, I received a sweet confirmation. I have never doubted that answer as coming from Heavenly Father, and I have never regretted my decision to move ahead to baptism.

How I live my faith

I serve as a counselor in the women's organization at church and also view the responsibility of visiting other sisters as a blessing. Over the years I have had the opportunity to learn the Gospel by teaching little children and then the youth. I love the opportunity to serve the members of the congregation. I truly do believe we love those we serve.
