Hi I'm Sharlene

I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming. I am a twin. I have a husband, 5 children and 13 grandchildren. I graduated from the University of Wyoming in mathematics. I like to sew, play the piano, read, research genealogy, and take walks. I am a natural health consultant. I believe that the best way to stay healthy is by eating right, using natural supplements and obeying natural law. Living a life in accordance with God's laws is always the best way.

Why I am a Mormon

My father was not a member of the Church and we lived on a ranch. I was not able to go to church very much as a child. I did get baptized when I was eight years of age. My sweet mother taught us well to obey the commands of the Lord and to pray and walk uprightly. She also taught us to keep the sabbath day holy. I learned that when I did not keep the sabbath day holy and went out with my friends swimming or to movies, etc. that I did not have a very good week. The spirit of the Lord was not with me. To this day I strive to keep the sabbath day holy. When I was 15, I was able to drive a car and go to church meetings. Then when I was a senior in high school, I was able to go to what we call seminary like bible study every day at lunch at school. That was a wonderful thing for me to be able to study my religion and see what it was all about. There was always a wonderful feeling in that seminary class. When I went to college I met my husband and married him after he served a mission for the Church. It has been a great experience to be able to raise my own children in my faith with a wonderful husband.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my life in a way that would please Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I Study the scriptures, have daily family prayer with my husband, work in the temple, and attend church meetings. Recently my husband and I served two 6 month Church missions in Martin's Cove, Wyoming. Seniors are able to serve missions with their spouse which is a great and enjoyable experience.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

 A temple marriage brings a husband and wife together forever as long as they keep the commandments. Children brought into that union will be able to be together with their parents forever as long as they keep the commandments in this life. Show more Show less
