Hi I'm Sandi

I was born in the Church. I was blessed to be an at home mom but also taught in a juvenile prison for 17 years.

About Me

I love being a mom to four boys and a devoted wife. While the boys were growing up I was involved in PTA, community volunteerism and church worker. My church callings always were with the youth - either the Young Women or Young Single Adults. I was taught by "goodly" parents that lifelong learning was important so I would always take Community Education classes to keep my mind busy and build my self-esteem. I have two degrees from the University of Utah. My first degree is in Elementary Education and my second degree is in Sociology with a secondary teaching certificate and a certificate in criminal justice. As an involved parent I attended countless sporting events, encouraged scouting and prepared my sons for a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

It is difficult to put into the words those things which are priceless yet the most meaningful in your life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is one of those things. I have a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was born in the covenant of the Church and experienced a happy childhood rich with friends and family. I would not be honest to say it was not without it trials and tribulations but the knowledge of a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows me makes life much easier. I have a husband and four sons and their families who also love the Gospel and live worthily so that it may enrich their lives. I bear testimony to you that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. Study it and receive your own testimony of its truth and joy.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a life style and not a simple commitment of an hour or two a week. Throughout most of my married life I have worked with the youth or Young Single Adults. I teach them about faith, integrity, leadership, service, doctrine and love. I am a visiting teacher and do not take my calling to visiting teach three sisters in the neighborhood lightly. It is through visiting teaching that I can assist my fellow sisters in any way they need - help with a meal, a ride to the doctors or simply a trusted friend. Currently, I volunteer at the local university where I assist in the service corner. There I encourage students to perform a service that helps our local community, such as making quilts and hats for the homeless, creating a Christmas tree for the Festival of Trees, looming hats for newborns and many other small projects the will help others. I love the fact that our Church encourages us to help neighbors and community. A loving and caring family is critical to members of the Church. We believe that we will be together eternally. Can you think of anything better?
