Cymrie recently returned home from an 18-month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in east Houston. Many of her arrangements are inspired by the hymns that she was raised singing and reflect her love of service and family. Cymrie also loves the color yellow, homemade soup, city lights, and making people smile.
