Hi I'm Sandy

I grew up in England, raised by fine Jamaican parents. I love to paint and I am a Mormon.

About Me

While growing up my parents moved myself and my three brothers from Hertfordshire to Montego Bay Jamaica. After a few years my family moved back to London England but over time moved further and further away from London until we settled in Berkshire. I have served a full time mission and loved the opportunity it gave me to meet different types of people. Several years later I gained my degree in History and History of Art and Design. I currently work for a large Telco/Digital company whilst being a carer for my disabled father, who is a talented painter. In my spare time I love to paint and draw, watch animated films, read or watch period dramas. I also like to read or be read to by someone who can make up voices and accents.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing that brings greater peace and happiness in my life than my membership in the church. By doing all I can to live by the teachings of the church my faith in Jesus Christ has increased. Also I have been provided a knowledge of God's plan for me personally, and this simply makes me a much better person than I would be otherwise. The commandments keep me focused and safe. I love knowing that God is the same as being he was when time began and that he continues to speak today through a living prophet. I am able to see the hand of God in my life on a daily basis and I always wonder with gratitude and amazement at the love God has for all of his children including me.

How I live my faith

I get involved with various activities at Church on Sundays and or mid week. I have been involved with working specifically with the youth (12 to 18 year old) young women. Most recently I have been involved as a Leader with the women in the local church to find ways to seek out those in need and find ways to make ourselves self sufficient and generally look out for each other and our families. This can involve anything from sitting beside a hospital bed and keeping company, sharing cookies and a warm drink, getting together and making home made facials or just generally keeping in touch by phone or other means.
