Hi I'm Sherilyn

I am from Colorado, USA. I am a full-time missionary in Donetsk, Ukraine. I love to sing! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to do many things, from painting and gardening to kayaking and crocheting. I am a college student with a major in Vocal Performance and a dual minor in Russian Fluency and Web Design. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and my friends. Right now I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Ukraine Donetsk Mission. I am so grateful for this incredible opportunity to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world! I love people: working with them, serving them, getting to know them. Life gets busy, but it is meant to be enjoyed; I enjoy life by living the gospel of Jesus Christ, sharing it with others, and making sure I stop to smell the flowers.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being Mormon. I live to love and serve God by being His hands here on earth. I know I am a daughter of God; I know that God knows me and loves me. Jesus Christ is my older brother; He died so that I may live free from sin. I know Christ is a resurrected being, endowed with the very power of God. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the fully restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know this because the Holy Ghost has testified of this in my heart; this gospel is filled with love, peace, and godliness. I love the feeling that grows inside of me when I do something good. That is what this Gospel is about: doing good and loving one another.

How I live my faith

Living the gospel of Jesus Christ requires a daily commitment to serve and love those around me. I am so grateful for my family! I show my faith by loving them. I read the Book of Mormon and other books of scripture every day. I know the Bible is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly and I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I also stay close to Heavenly Father by praying vocally morning and night and by always keeping a prayer in my heart. Sometimes (most of the time) life is challenging, but I know that with my Savior anything is possible. Through Christ's Atonement I can overcome every weakness and become strong. To me, living my faith is to live a Christian life. I testify of Christ and His divinity by the way that I live; in kindness and love towards my fellow men.
