Hi I'm Cheryl Christine Burton

I am a Southern Girl and a Texas Transplant. I am a Wife, a Homemaker, an Aspiring Designer, and I'm A Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I am in my twenties, and I've been married for 5 years. My husband and I met while we were kids and his sisters were my best friends, and now we are anxious to start our family. I like doing things that are creative, like music, reading, and interior design. I have two siblings, an older sister,who is married with a child and a younger brother who is currently serving his mission in Utah. My parents are both hard working people who tried very hard to instill in us the importance of knowledge and learning, but also the importance of faith, and that although my life may not always be perfect, or even easy, Heavenly Father is always beside me and willing to help me through my trials if I have the faith to believe and trust in Him.

Why I am a Mormon

Most of my family are members of the church. So when I was born I just grew up going with them, but at one point in my life, I was searching and praying to know if it was really true. As I read the scriptures and prayed to Heavenly Father, I felt the spirit confirm to me that this church is true, that it holds the complete gospel of Jesus Christ. I felt peace like I had never felt before in my life. I knew then that the LDS church was where I should be, and I have never doubted it since. I love the Gospel. I love my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ. I know that I will be able to live with them again after this life. I thank God every day for the blessings he has given me. For my family, For my husband. For the opprtunity that I have to be with them forever and ever, not just until death. For the love and the friendship that I have in my life. For the ability I have to KNOW, not just believe, but KNOW that He exists. I know that Christ died for me to redeem me from my sins, and most of all. I KNOW that He lives and He wants me to be able to return to Him. Most of all, because He loves me, He wants me to be happy. He wants me to have everlasting joy. I love my Savior and I feel that joy when I feel that love.

How I live my faith

One of the most wonderful things about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the gospel of Jesus Christ, is that it's not just about showing up on a Sunday morning and spending an hour at church. It really is a way of life. It offers you MANY opportunities to serve, and therefore share the love of Christ with someone else. It's something that I can take with me throughout each day and it teaches me how to make good choices, be kind, be generous, be loving, and come closer to Christ.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Cheryl Christine Burton
Mormons believe that Family is a central part of Heavenly Fathers Plan of Happiness. We believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, that Sex should only be practiced within the bonds of matrimony. We believe that families can be together forever, not only until death. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Cheryl Christine Burton
My husband and I were sealed together in the Temple, and because of this, we have the opportunity to, through obedience to Heavenly Fathers commandments, be together for eternity. There is no " 'til death do you part" in a Temple Marriage. I am so grateful for this and for the knowledge that when we have children, no matter what may happen in our lives, we will not be separated for more than a small moment. Why would I want to lose my family? It would make having one pointless. Luckily, that's not Heavenly Father's plan. Show more Show less
