Hi I'm Cindy

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, and registered nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised as a Catholic. When I was a young adult, I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My husband and I were married in the temple. We have two children, a daughter-in-law, and four grandchildren. In addition to spending a lot of time with my family, I enjoy reading and genealogy work. I also enjoy working as a school nurse, helping children and their families.

Why I am a Mormon

In comparing my life now with the way it was when I did not have the Church in my life, I can definitely say I am much happier now. I love the gospel. It is very comforting to have the guidance of living prophets here on the earth today. The temples and teachings on the eternal nature of families are beautiful. I know I want my family to be a family for eternity. I love the Book of Mormon and I feel of its truthfulness when I read from it. Activity in the Church has added much meaning to my life, and it has helped me to become a better individual and family member.

How I live my faith

Church activity and family are my priorities. I attend church each Sunday. Daily prayer, scripture study, and striving to follow the teachings of our prophets are important to me. I have opportunities to serve others through my activity in the Church. For example, I help teach the gospel to young children on Sundays. Service opportunities also come through activities in the women's organization, such as through visits to other women in their homes. My activity in the Church helps me strengthen my family.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Pray to ask Heavenly Father if Mormonism is true. Study to learn about the teachings of the Church. Read the Book of Mormon. Read or listen to the words of the latter-day prophets. Live those teachings and see what a difference it can make in your personal and family life. You can feel of its truthfulness as you do those things. The Holy Spirit will help you to know.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Absolutely! To think that we can receive God's word through a living prophet on earth today is amazing. When I listen to or read the words of our prophets and strive to follow the counsel given, the blessings come. It is comforting to me to know that Heavenly Father has given us a prophet in this day to guide and protect us. As we study the words of our prophets and learn about their lives, we can see that they truly are God's servants and the leaders in His kingdom here on the earth. Show more Show less
