Hi I'm Wendy B.

I grew up on a farm in Idaho. I am now a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I am a very happy person. I love singing and listening to music of most kinds. I enjoy crocheting, reading, and cooking. I love getting together with friends and family, I could throw a party every week. I have the best husband in the world. One of the things we love to do most together is go fishing; we take turns catching the most fish. I retired from the state working for the Legislature. I am very patriotic, I really love the United States of American.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints so I was raised in that faith. However, when I was sixteen, I felt the need to find out for myself if that is really what I wanted to be. One day, I went down into the fields and knelt down on a ditch bank and prayed. I really needed to know if my Heavenly Father knew ME and was aware of me and my feelings. I came away from that experience feeling very loved and at peace. Events over the next few days reconfirmed to me that I was known and loved by my Heavenly Father and that I was headed in the right direction in my life.

How I live my faith

I enjoy participating in the community and church events and associating with people in our city. In my church, I have taught the small children, the teenagers, and adults the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have to say, children are my favorite, especially teaching through music. I have a great love for people and believe that a united community and neighborhood, no matter what religion, can accomplish great things.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Wendy B.
Throughout the scriptures, we are commanded to take care of the poor and the needy. The church welfare service is an organized and loving way to do this. Both the giving and the receiving through this program blesses so many lives. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Wendy B.
I deeply honor and respect Joseph Smith as I am sure the people of Abraham did in Abraham's day and the people of Moses did in his day for their great leadership and guidance. Joseph Smith was asked to restore precious ancient truths that had been lost from people's knowledge. It was not something he sought; he was asked to do it and he did. It took great sacrifice and courage and by doing so blessed all people of the earth. Show more Show less
