Hi I'm Sharon.

I am a mother of three. I am a runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies include reading, bargain shopping, and listening to uplifting music. I like to eat hamburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches and ice cream. I enjoy spending time outdoors and taking in the many beauties and wonders of God's creations. A few years ago I got into running and have participated in several races along with a half marathon. I am daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother of three dynamic children who are the joy of my life, and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon defines who I am as a person. I have been a member my entire life. Some people feel The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints expects much of its members and is restrictive. I think of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as protective. As I live the principles of the gospel and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ it helps me to be a better person. I have been raised with good morals and values that I now try to instill in my children. I have an understanding of my purpose here on this earth and that I am a daughter of God. As I follow Jesus Christ it helps me to feel peace and happiness in my life.

How I live my faith

I attend church services on Sundays which gives me a spiritual lift and prepares me for the demands and challenges of the coming week. Reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon help me to know the things I can do to live the kind of life Jesus Christ lived and the things I need to do to live with God and Jesus Christ again. I pray to God and know that he hears and answers my prayers. Opportunties I have had for serving in the church include working with the young children and youth on Sundays and with their activities during the week. I am a part of and currently serve as a leader of the women's organization of the church. It is the largest womens organization in the world. I seek for opportunities to do good in my community and church. I enjoy helping other people and it helps me to feel meaning and purpose in my life as I help those in need.
