Hi I'm Sharee

I'm a cosmetology instructor, wife & college student. I love running, piano, & family. Nature inspires me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

About me? Well I guess first and foremost I am a wife to an incredible man. We are getting ready to make the transition to graduate school for him where he will be studying for a PhD in counseling psychology. I am a licensed cosmetology instructor and have been teaching at a Paul Mitchell Partner school for 3 years. I have a passion for skin, nails, and makeup. I have developed a love of running and I wish so much I had a talent for fashion and design (I'm just not good at that! :-) )I am a soon to be college student and a little bit in love with organizing. I am interested in essential oils, love music of any kind, enjoy movies and cookie dough. Reading books is an escape from the world when I need it and I love little pups! I can't wait to be a mom :-) I feel like an all American girl who wants to learn everything and have new adventures. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My parents have always been members and I was raised a Latter day Saint. While in high school we moved to a new state. I really struggled with my self esteem in our new home and really tried to find myself. Once I left home I felt like I could understand my real self when I started attending my church meetings and my singles ward activities. The peace I felt as a part of that group helped my anxiety and depression. I felt at home even though I was on my own. I wanted to feel that peace and feeling of belonging/love because it kept my anxiety away. So I continued my attendance and involvement with my singles ward and family home evening group. It was there that I realized that the comfort I felt was from The Holy Ghost. I wanted to live my life in such a way that I could have Him as my constant companion. Learning our Heavenly Fathers plan of happiness for us made me feel complete. I have a testimony of the gospel and how as a part of it I can be truly at peace and full of happiness.

How I live my faith

Throughout everyday of my life I live my faith through different actions. Starting on Sunday I participate in Sunday church services. I love going to Sunday meetings because I love learning. I try to be a sponge and soak up all the information that I can. It is good to review gospel principles each Sunday because I feel that I always walk away learning something new that I didn't realize before. Throughout the week I like to study and learn about my faith. It helps me feel closer to my Father in Heaven, my Savior Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. I study by reading Church magazines, such as the Ensign. I love visiting the Church websites to see new ways to get information and insight into the topics I am studying. My husband and I aren't settled with a graduate school yet so we have moved a lot and probably will until we are excepted into graduate school. Since we move frequently the wards that we attend for Church and our Church callings change quite a bit. We are grateful that even though we move to new Church wards and get to meet new people, the gospel is always the same. We live the gospel in our home, wherever it may be, by having Family Home Evenings, prayer, and scripture study (together and personally). We love to learn especially about the gospel. By learning we are better able to share and teach others our faith.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is an organization for women. We get to meet as The Relief Society each Sunday as one of our three Sunday meetings during Church services. We learn and build our faith and personal righteousness. The faith and righteousness enables us to strengthen our own homes and families as well as help our Sisters in their quest to strengthen their homes and families. We also help those in need. We do this by actively participating in our communities, schools, and neighborhoods. We also get to do this by participating in Visiting Teaching in our wards. Visiting Teaching enables us to care for our ward members which in turn helps families receive care, help, and love that they need. Show more Show less
