Hi I'm Mandi

I believe in miracles. I am a mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to three small children, they are healthy, happy and keep me hopping. We enjoy spending time outdoors working on the farm and ranch. I feel I have rather strange hobbies, I honestly enjoy cleaning my house, exercising and just being home.. I also love to read and am always open for suggestions on the latest and best books to read. I have found that my alone time for reading has decreased substantionally since the birth of my third child, who is an absolute gem but three really is a crowd! I feel like my children are growing so fast that I am content to just be here and in the moment with them. I spent time working in an orphanage before I got married, and earned a degree in secondary education just before the birth of my second child. I feel that I had some great experiences before I had children, but I don't think that this is the time in my life for exotic vacations and travel. I just want to be with my kids as long as possible. My husband is my best friend and I am excited to spend eternity with him, and maybe when our kids are grown we can bust out of our small town and explore the world a bit!

Why I am a Mormon

We were raised to work hard on the farm and I developed a strong character because of my experiences there. There were many people in our town who were not

How I live my faith

I have been serving as the Sunday School teacher to the 12-14 year old youth in our ward. They are vivacious and full of energy, but if I can keep them engaged on the lesson they are wonderful students. I enjoy attending my church meetings on Sundays and also sometimes during the week. I love serving other people and the happiness it brings me. I also enjoy attending the temple with my husband and love the peacefulness that surrounds us there. I enjoy working with youth by being their friend and helping them realized their full potential.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We as Mormons believe that the purpose of this earthly life is to be tested and tried and to gain experience and prove ourselves worthy to our Heavenly Father. We are sent here to recieve a physical body and experience mortality at is fullest. We must grow, progress and learn to serve one another and the Lord. We are also here to form a family that we have the opportunity to retain for eternity. If we can fulfill our earthly life worthily then our reward is eternal glory and exaultation in the presence of our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
