Hi I'm Saundra

I grew up in Southern California. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a student, co-worker and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

The first time I read the entire Book of Mormon I was 19. I had always attended church with my family, hearing others testify of the Book of Mormon’s truthfulness, but I wanted to know for myself. So I prayed. I asked Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true, I remember feeling a sense of peace and knowing that it was true. I felt this peace through the Holy Spirit. I served as an LDS missionary when I was 21 in Tennesse. During my mission I gained a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith as I read, pondered and shared his experience with prayer. I knew that Joseph Smith did see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that they came in answer to Joseph’s prayer. I know that God answers prayers. I know that God lives. He is real. He loves each one of us. He knows each one of us. He wants to help each one of us. I know that the atonement of Jesus Christ is real, that Christ suffered not only on the cross but in the Garden of Gethsemane for my sins and yours. I know that through Christ’s sacrifice I have felt whole again. I know that this healing power is available for all. I know that families are eternal; we can be with those we love in this life after our time on this earth has ended. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is Christ’s church on the earth today. It is true. I know that there is a living Prophet on the earth today, he recieves direction from God. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the adult women within the church, organizing activities to enrich their lives, helping them to be better mothers, wives, friends, daughters, and neighbors. In additon, I do my best to follow the commandments of God and live by the guidelines of the church leaders.
