Hi I'm Cindy

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a mom of 8 children and that's what I do most of the time. My children say that I do taxes all the time, but really that's more of a quarterly and yearly event. I manage the finances for our 1 truck flatbed trucking business. I try to be very conservative with our resources so we can soon be out of debt and live a more prosperous life. When I am really brave, I put on a beesuit and help my husband take care of our beehives. I love it when we go out to breakfast or on a Friday night date. To spend quality time with my husband I hop in the Peterbilt and go trucking with him for a few days in the year and I love getting out to see the country. For fun I go to the D.I. thrift store and find interesting, useful or pretty treasures to give as gifts, wear, or decorate my little old house. I also love to find pretty decorating and craft ideas on the internet or in books. I enjoy writing letters, learning, and being creative. I also like to go walking.

Why I am a Mormon

As a youth my Seminary teacher taught how Jesus was crucified on the cross after He had atoned for the sins of the world. My heart ached as I knew that He was the only perfect one to ever live and yet He would take upon Himself the sins and pains of everyone including me. I want to always remember Him and follow Him, the Only Begotten Son of our Heavenly Father. He atoned for my sins and died for me! He lives again and He appeared to Joseph Smith with Heavenly Father. He directs the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints through living prophets. Thomas S. Monson is the President of the Church and a prophet today. The Book of Mormon is true. I have read it and found answers, comfort and direction in its scripture. When I obey the commandments the Holy Ghost is with me. And when I am calm, still, and my heart is open, I can more fully hear and understand the promptings of the Holy Ghost who teaches and guides me toward the Lord's will for my life. We are all Heavenly Father's children and He loves us perfectly. He loves you! You are never alone as He is aware of you. He waits for you to pray to Him. I am a daughter of Heavenly Father, who loves me. I have faith in Him and I know that if I do my best to remember and follow Jesus Christ, that I will have my family forever and I will have my two year old son again who died years ago. I will get a chance to raise him in the next life when we are all resurrected! Because Jesus died and was resurrected, we will all live again!

How I live my faith

I help teach 8-11 year old girls the Gospel of Jesus Christ through lessons and fun activities including service projects. I try to read the Holy Scriptures often with my children. I pray daily to my Heavenly Father with my family and by myself. I attend Church meetings every week. I make cakes and Jello dishes for funeral luncheons. I love my Savior and I don't want to let Him down. I want to share His message of love with everyone. I try to smile and show kindness to everyone around me. I help support my oldest son on an LDS mission in Hawaii.
