Hi I'm Cindy

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a wife, a mama, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a godmother, a step-grandma, a friend. I am a Mormon. I love homeschooling our daughters, making memories, adventuring and exploring our amazing country. I enjoy teaching, learning, the ocean and lighthouses, reading, singing, listening to good music, counted cross stitch, indexing, family history, and scrapbooking to help the memories we make together stay alive.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon, but I am a Mormon now and forever because I know that our Heavenly Father loves me and all of His children and wants us to be together as families now and forever. He loves and knows each of us personally, and has a plan and purpose for our lives. The lessons we learn here on earth we can and will take with us when we move on! I had to wait longer than many for the blessings of having a husband and children, and learned much while I was waiting. It was all worth the wait! My incredible husband is my best blessing, friend, supporter, and teacher, and I am so grateful to know that we can be together forever. As a companionship, we are working together with our two amazing daughters to “Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God.” We have a long way to go, but we are on the right path together. Knowing that we are working toward a goal that really matters, and that will make a difference for eternity, keeps us going forward, especially during challenges. I know, through a personal witness from the Holy Ghost, that Jesus atoned for my sins. He died for me – for each one of us – so that we can be together, with Him, now and forever. One day at a time, He grants us tender mercies so that we can go on teaching and learning from one another and touching each other’s lives as He touched lives. If we have faith as a little child, I know that we will receive blessings beyond measure – maybe not when we would choose to receive them, but the rewards will be ours!

How I live my faith

Children have always been a wonder to me. As a tiny girl, I knew that someday I wanted more than anything to be a mama.When I was a teen, I loved babysitting. During college, my summer job was always to be a teacher’s aid, first in a preschool, then in a program for special education. I graduated from BYU with teaching degrees in Elementary Education and Educational Psychology/Special Education. I taught learning disabled students in junior high for seven years. But first, I served as a Spanish-speaking missionary – teaching our Father's children in Honduras and in Houston, TX. During those 18 months, I truly learned the most important lessons about teaching by doing it the way Jesus did – with love! My current opportunity to serve involves the children at church. My calling as the secretary in the organization for children gives me the opportunity to spend a couple of hours each Sunday with the young ones. It’s incredible - we sing wonderful songs and talk about the gospel in basic, simple, and beautiful ways. Children are so faithful and teachable and seem to understand and accept gospel truths because they ring true in their sweet souls. They remind me of what I am, a child of God, and of how I need to be, and of what I can become.
