Hi I'm Sunny
I'm a wife, a mother of 5, an educator and a food blogger. I'm a Mormon.
I spend my days as a reading specialist/assistant principal at my children’s K-12 school. I spend my nights with my family and my evenings working on my blog. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease just over two years ago. This coupled with the milk and shellfish allergies my family already managed pushed us into a lifestyle of whole foods and creative cooking. Now, I help others find new and interesting ways to have their cake and love it, too! www.andloveittoo.com
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, yet it took many years to grow my testimony in full. I spent more than 5 years away from the LDS church in search of the truth, in search of something that would help me know and understand the scriptures for what I believed them to be… My search lead me right back here, to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. For every question, I found an answer, for every doubt I found my peace. Through this church I found the light, the way… I have no doubt there is a Father in Heaven who loves us. I know he sent His Son to live and die for us, for all of us (2 Corinthians 5:15). I believe that the Bible is the word of God, as far as it is translated correctly. I believe the Book of Mormon to also be the word of God. I am thankful for modern day leaders who can help lead and guide us through struggles, temptations and realities which are far different than those our ancestors faced. I know this church is true.
How I live my faith
My family and I begin each day with a scripture and prayer. We find that our days are easier when we begin with a spiritual moment than when we go without. Every month, a church companion and I visit with four different women who are members of our ward…some attend church regularly, some do not. Regardless, my companion and I take the time to reach out to these women and help to ensure their needs are being met as best we can. Every Wednesday, my children participate in Boy Scouts and youth programs which are available through the church. For me, being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is more than a religion; it is a way of life. More importantly though, it is a path; a path that leads to eternal happiness.
