Hi I'm Sheila

I like to have friends over. I like to learn things. I enjoy being with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have four children that I am busy homeschooling. I enjoy the challenge of finding new recipes to make for my gluten/wheat/dairy/yeast free family. I love to read historical fiction and just about anything else! I am learning how to improve my garden. I like watching creatures in nature. I love to go places on vacations. I like making things. I would enjoy being an organizational consultant - all the fun of organizing things without having to do the daily maintenance! 

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, a descendant of the early pioneers. My family has always been strong and active members of the church. I appreciate the foundation that this gives my life, but have realized that no matter who you come from, you have to have your own knowledge. I am an active, happy member of the Church today because I have studied, prayed, and recieved personal testimony of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I choose to live the life that makes me feel fulfilled and at peace.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by choosing to teach my children about their Savior, Jesus Christ, by reading scriptures with them, having family prayer, and trying to serve others. It is not always easy, but always worth it. I also try to do those things on my own. I serve in my ward by teaching young children about Heavenly Father's plan for us all. I am also a visiting teacher, which is someone who serves other ladies in the church by visiting, calling or checking up on them every month or more often. This way, we are able to be friends and helpers in both trying times and uplifting times!

What is being a Mormon like?

It's fun, and full of opportunities to grow and develop your faith, family relationships, and make friends that have a common goal in mind - return to live with Heavenly Father with our families. It is a blessing because it gives you a place of refuge and peace in the chaotic pace of modern life. If we live as we are taught, then we are free to be happy without painful addictions, consuming debt and dependence on others. It is actually very liberating! It also gives you a purpose to your life - to know that all the time and energy that you put into your family and relationships can go with you into eternity. Show more Show less
