Hi I'm Sondra

I'm a scientist, an adventurist, a wife, and a Mormon!

About Me

Ever since I was a little girl I have always enjoyed doing things with my family outdoors. Living in California gives me this opportunity on a daily basis. It also gives me a chance to work in an amazing field, science. I love California because it brought so many important things into my life; enjoying the outdoors, working in the science field, living close to my family, and finding The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

Have you ever walked into a room and felt like it was the warmest and safest place in the world? A place that feels like home even though you have never been there before? A place that feels like everything is the way it is supposed to be? I found that in my grandparents home the first time I walked in when I was 22 years old. I was not exactly sure why I felt that way. I found out a few days later when I went to church with my grandmother. What made her home full of love, safety, and completely right was having Jesus Christ and the priesthood in her home. Having the light of Jesus Christ and the priesthood in my home is the reason I became a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

The true love of Christ is Charity. In turn I live my faith by serving others and bringing the light of Christ into my life and into other lives.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Since I was a little girl I have heard people ask, "What is the purpose of life?" I never really knew the answer until I investigated The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. We come to earth to be able to; 1) Have a family so we can understand the love our Heavenly Father has for us. 2) Exercise free agency 3) Learn the difference between good and evil by exercising free agency 4) Receive a physical body By practicing free agency, learning the difference between right and wrong, and following the ordinances and commandments you can return with your heavenly father.
