Hi I'm Sharon

I grew up in Oklahoma. I'm a teacher. I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I went to school to be a teacher and taught preschool for two years. Then I became a mom and decided to stay home and raise our son which has been a new challenge all on its own. I like to try to be crafty, travel, read, be with friends, and enjoy the out doors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon and have always believed it was the true gospel of Jesus Christ. However, while being a missionary I came to know it was true through the feelings I felt while teaching His gospel to others. Every time I taught a person about the truths of the church, my heart would feel warm and I would be happy. One day I realized it was the Holy Ghost telling me that what I was teaching was the truth. What comfort it gives me to know that the true gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth again today, we have continuing revelation from Heavenly Father, and prophets to lead us. Heavenly Father wants us to learn and be happy here on earth and has given us everything we need to do so.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by serving others and trying to become more like Christ. In the church you don't have to go far to see people serving each other. We all have different responsibilities in our church and try to do them the best we can with no monitary rewards, just the good feeling we get knowing we are doing our best for others. Just as Christ served the people he was teaching, we also try to follow in His footsteps and try to serve others and make our lives more like His.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

We believe that God reveals Himself to all people through prophets. The words that He tells a group of people is written down and becomes scripture. So we believe that the Bible is the word of God revealed through his prophets to the Jews, just as the Book of Mormon is the word of God revealed through prophets to the people of the Americas. The Lord speaks to us through those words to help us in our lives. Show more Show less
