Hi I'm Cyndi

I studied Speech/Language Disabilities, worked with learning disabled children, cared for my father with Alzheimers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been happlily married since 1977. I've been blessed to be the mother to 5 wonderful children. My finest moments come through the eyes of my granchildren. I enjoy walking on the beach or hiking in the mountains. I like to write poetry and read. I am trying my hand at quilting. My life hasn't been made up extraordinary things done but it is an accumulation of daily lessons learned mixed with small acts accomplished to meet the needs of the many people that have crossed my path in some way or another.

Why I am a Mormon

When reading the Book of Mormon for the first time, I came to 3 Nephi and received a very deep impression that what I was reading was in fact true. The events described and principles taught rang so very true. Since then, I have received a far greater understanding of who we are, who our Father in Heaven is, and who Jesus Christ is. My relationship with Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father has become more definitive. It is a relationship which allows two-way communication between myself and God. The principles and doctrines taught have changed my life. I've learned how to apply those principles into my everyday life and see others as God sees them - as His children. It has helped me to achieve happiness even when things get hard. It has created hope and peace in my life even when the world around me embraces darkness.

How I live my faith

I belong to the organization of women within our faith called Relief Society. I've been given the responsiblity of providing "watchcare" to 4 other women within this organization. This entails keeping consistent contact with each of them through visits, phone calls, notes of encouragement, text messages, and small acts of service depending on their needs. I see them as my sister-friends who have brought great blessings into my life. Every so often, I assist in organizing an event that brings many women of our faith together for friendshipping and a common purpose. Sometimes that purpose is to strengthen our faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ, and sometimes it is to meet a need in the community, such as preparing hygiene kits for womens' shelters. Many opportunities have been given for me to teach, witness, and testify of Jesus Christ and the doctrines He taught that lead to true happiness and keeps us out of reach from discouragement and despair.
