Hi I'm Sandra Bacon

I was born and raised in Monticello, Utah I was raised in a Mormon family.

About Me

I grew up in a large Mormon family. I am a wife and mother. My husband is my best friend. I love my children and adore my grandchildren. My extended family are so dear to me. I enjoy being with family and friends. Some of my hobbies are woodworking, tole painting, & quilting.

Why I am a Mormon

As I grew up in the church I was taught the gospel by my parents, siblings, and teachers. At first I naturally relied on their testimony and teachings. As I became an adult I gradually realized that I believed those teachings and they became my own testimony. I know that if the church wasn't true and that by following it teachings and standards it would still be a wonderful way to grow into good people and citizens. I do know the church is true. I know that it is the church that Jesus Christ established when he walked on the earth. I know that it was restored through Joseph Smith and that he translated ancient records that we know of as the Book of Mormon. I know that they are another testament of Jesus Christ along with the Bible. I know that they are both the word of God.

How I live my faith

I strive to do my best to live my life so that the Savior would be happy with my actions. Through the years I have served in callings in the church with the primary, the youth, and adults.
