Hi I'm Wendy

I have grown up and lived in beautiful Cornwall all my life. I'm a nursery nurse, a mother and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been working as a nursery nurse since I left school in 1995 and in 2009 I became a mother. Being a mum has given me a lot more patience and helped me put my life into better perspective. Becoming a single mum has brought many more challenges but also many blessings and my wonderful young son is a constant reminder of Heavenly Father's love for me. I've recently begun learning British Sign Language (BSL) and have made some wonderful new friends in the local community and especially through the Cornwall Deaf Centre. Living in Cornwall is amazing and I try and make the most of the beautiful beaches and woodland surrounding us here.

Why I am a Mormon

My nana and my mother joined the church in 1972 and stayed. I was brought up to know I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and as I've grown up with this knowledge I have come to know for myself that Jesus Christ died so that I may live in heaven again someday. I know I can be with my family for eternity and this brings great peace to me when so many of them have already gone ahead and are waiting for me. I have a strong belief in the power of prayer and I know that my Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers. As a single mother life can be difficult at times but my faith helps me cope with the many challenges this life brings and I am teaching my son that he too has a Heavenly father who loves him and that he can talk to Him though prayer.

How I live my faith

I visit some of the women from my local ward on a monthly basis with another lady and together we share a spiritual message with each of these women. Sometimes we help them with hugs and cookies and other times just by being a friendly face and reminding them that God loves them. I have helped serve in my ward in many different ways including with the children, the youth and the women of our ward by teaching and helping organise fun events.
