Hi I'm Cyndi Barker

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am happily married for eternity. I love being a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife to my highschool sweetheart and mother to 3 wonderful sons and 1 amazing daughter. My son is currently serving a mission for The Lord in South Carolina. I teach at a program for special education students. We home school our children through 9th grade and love spending time as a family. I enjoy time in Southern Utah with my family- hiking, fishing, exploring, & playing. I love to travel and spend special time with each one of my kids. My husband and I enjoy doing photography together as a team.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have chosen to continue following the gospel because of my ever growing testimony. Members of the church have a light within and that light comes from Christ. I always want to feel the warmth of the spirit and feel Christ's love for me. I have amazing examples in my life of how we can be blessed by living the gospel. I know that we have a prophet on earth today, Thomas S Monson. I know that through him, we receive guidance from the Lord. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and through The Lord he translated the Book of Mormon and re-established The Lord's church on earth. I know that God lives and I know that I am His daughter. I know these things because I have prayed about them and the spirit has testified to me, personally, that they are true. This knowledge brings me peace and comfort and the scriptures give me direction for my life and a guide of how to raise my family so that we can return to our Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

My family and I attend church every Sunday and learn more about The Gospel and our Savior's teachings so that we can be more like him. We take the sacrament and renew the covenants we made at baptism. I attend the temple often and enjoy the blessing that come from within those sacred walls. I pray and read this scriptures and seek for my Father's guidance. We strive to raise our children within the gospel and they learn about morals, and self worth above all. By holding weekly Family night, we know that we will remain strong and can create a firm foundation for our family. When we struggle, we go to the Lord. He is always there and knows each of us personally. He will hear us and he will answer. I love to serve callings with the youth and teach the younger children at church. I enjoy going to Young Women's Camp each summer.
