Hi I'm Wanda

Born and raised in the South, met the Missionaries, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I like Painting, Sewing, cooking, and I love reading the Bible. I have 17 brothers and sisters and I love all of them. I was a supervisor in sock company and supervisor at a hotel too doing weddings. I love to make blankets and quilts. I've been married twent-six years to a very good man and I love agrivating him- just kidding. I love collecting bears, all kinds. And I like to collect crystal. I love putting together baskets with all sorts of goodies in it for your body. I really enjoy being with people; listening to them and talking with them. And now, Sharing the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

One night I was at my lowest point and I did not want to continue life. Then a commercial came on the TV about the book of mormon, so I picked up the telephone. I asked for the book and I told them I needed help. I asked them to send the missionaries to my house and I wanted to take the lessons but first I went to church for three months. I prayed about it and I got my answer through prayer and the Holy ghost. so then I took the lessons and shortly after got baptized. I was baptized March 4, 1994. I was baptized by Elder Scott. I haven't missed but 10 Sundays, and only because I was too sick. I know Joseph Smith is a true Prophet. I can relate to him. Before I became a member, I had attended every church and couldn't find what I was looking for. And when I walked into the Mormon church, I felt like I had come home. Everyone was so warm and so kind I knew thats where I needed to be. March 29, 1996 I was able to go to the temple. That was the best day of my life. I love all of the book or Mormon. Every chapter! I know it is a true record from God because I prayed about it and felt the Holy Ghost. When I prayed, I had a vision of the brightest light in my mind and I knew that I was going to join the church. I love sharing the Gospel with anybody I can. I know that this church is true. And when you come visit, let your mind be filled with peace and love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and you will know for yourself that it is true. No one will tell you.

How I live my faith

I am a sunday school teacher for children ages 4-8. I am the second Councilor in the primary, it means we get together and plan activities for the kids. We also teach them songs of Christ and help them to choose the right. I love reading the gospel to the kids. I actually love to give talks in sacrament because I learn more when I do the research for them. I love working with the kids, they are like little sponges! They soak up everything and ask alot of questions which I love. It makes me go do more research to find answers for them.
