Hi I'm Sandy

Hi! I have lived in the "lone star state", most of my life. I'm a wife, mother, and nurse...and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a registered nurse and have had the opportunity to work in many different areas as a nurse - hospitals, nursing homes, and even the correctional setting. I enjoy caring for and bringing comfort to people that are in need and have health issues. My number one job is being a mom - I absolutely love watching my kids grow, learn, and participate in activities. I am a wife to a loving and hard working man that I respect and admire. My hobbies are photography, scrapbooking, reading, and walking.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandfather was a convert to the church as such, I was born into the LDS faith. As a child, I enjoyed going to church and hearing the hymns and music, they brought a special feeling into my heart that I just knew was good and true. Throughout my growing years, we did not always attend church, but the feelings I had there were real and I never doubted it was the church I belonged to. When I was 20 years old, the sporadic church attendance had continued and I decided to read the Book of Mormon, for myself, promising that if I received an answer of it's truthfullness I would attend church and be active in every aspect of the word. I read the book prayerfully and with a real desire to receive a spiritual answer, and so it was that I could not put the book down and read it in 3 days. The special feeling is not something that I can describe with words that are spoken or written, but I can say that I received a spiritual witness that the Book of Mormon is true and oh, the joy that I felt, as I had never before felt during those 3 days. That was thirty years ago, and I have been true to my promise, attending church and accepting any assignments that are given me to assist the church and those that attend. I served a mission and my daughter is waiting to leave on her mission very soon. I am a "mormon", because it is a way of life - the gospel teaches us how to better follow Jesus Christ and become more like him (that is a life time progression). I received blessing untold, and my life is far from perfect or without illness, trials, or tribulations...but when I am doing the things that I know I am supposed to be doing, burdens become tolerable and lighter. And the happy times are just the more happy. I choose to be mormon because I choose to follow Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by treating others with kindness, being honest in my dealings, and trying to be a good example to others. I am currently the "primary president" in our church's children's organization. As such, I assist in overseeing the children's program and ensuring that all the children's spiritual needs are met. Our primary goal is that the children learn that they have a Heavenly Father that loves them and a Savior, Jesus Christ that will help and guide them in whatever they do and whatever they need. And that they will know how to come unto Christ as they grow. I love working with and serving the little children. They have sweet, innocent spirits that can lift anyones heart and bring joy to our lives.
