Hi I'm Sharisa Pergler

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of four kids and have two brothers and one sister. All of us are old and married. Well what I used to think was old when I was a kid. My to oldest siblings have three kids each. I attended two colleges in Utah and I am now with my husband in Louisville Kentucky. He is going to Dental School and I am lucky and get to stay at home. I am a certified Pharmacy Technician and my last job was as a Pharmacy tech. at Walmart Pharmacy in Logan. My husband and I will be having our first kid this September. I am so excited to have a little girl.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints because I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. The Book of Mormon has truly helped me to come to know who my savior is and what the atonement means for me personally. There has been many times in my life that I have had to rely on my faith in Christ. He has always been there for me. Every week that I attend sacrament meeting I am reminded that my Savior loves me and that this next week is a chance for me to be a little better. I know that Joseph Smith Jr. truly did see God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. I have felt the Holy Spirit witness this to me. I also know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet who receives inspiration for us all. I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and know that it blesses all the lives of its members and many others.

How I live my faith

When I was a senior in High School I ended up having to have brain surgery. I was so devistated at the time. I thought, as most selfish teenagers would, that my life was over. I would not get to finish my senior year of high school with my friends. The only thing that helped be get over not finishing was the constant pain I was in. I could barely move. By the day of peers graduation I had gone through two surgeries and two lumbar drains, 19 days in ICU, and trying to finish school at home. Every morning during this time I would attempt to roll out of bed and sometimes just in bed say my prayers. Everytime I said a prayer I new that Heavenly Father was there with me. While I was in the hospital there were many people who came and served me. I had friends bring me a bowl of fruit, neighbors stay a day so my mom could get some rest. There were people who would just take the time to smile, even though I looked very scary with a tube out of my back. From this experience I have worked to live my life better because you never know what will happen or who you might touch. I now work to serve in my community, home, and church in any way I can; because I know what it is like to be served. Everytime someone toke the time to serve me I truly felt my Saviors love. I hope that as I serve others that I can help others feel his love also.
