Hi I'm Sherri !

I'm a Math Teacher, a Mom and a Nana. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a middle school math teacher (some people tell me "bless you", I say, "Thank you" because I enjoy teaching them!) I have 4 children, 2 boys who still live at home. I have lived in Texas for 26 years where my husband and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary this year! I have moved over 16 times before settling down in Texas. I love to try EVERYTHING when it comes to hobbies, but I am really good at sewing, woodworking (painting), and cooking. I have served in the LDS church as a Early-Morning Seminary Teacher for 16 years and love every minute of it!

Why I am a Mormon

In the beginning...I became a Mormon because my mother joined the church when I was 4. Now, I am an active Latter-Day Saint because I know the church is true. I have read the scriptures many times and I have taken the principles that Jesus taught and applied them in my life. I practice my faith everyday and raise my children to know that Jesus did walk this Earth, set an example for us, suffered for our sins, and died on the cross for us. I also know that He called a Prophet, Joseph Smith Jr., to bring the true church back after a period of Apostasy. Why am I a Mormon? Because I know this church is true and I have learned that I am a Child of God and He loves me (and you too!)

How I live my faith

Everyday I read my scriptures and pray. I know that is how we can get closer to God and allow Him to give us guidance while we are here. I am a Visiting Teacher where I go to a few members houses and share a short lesson and help them with their needs. I also teach the 9-12 grade youth every morning during Early Morning Seminary. This is where the students learn about the gospel every morning before going to school and strengthen their lives and testimonies for the challenges that they will meet that day.

Are Mormons Christians?

Sherri !
Of course we are! We believe in Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. Many think we are a cult but we are far from that! We teach & learn about Jesus Christ, what He did for us, and how we can live to become like Him. Show more Show less
