Hi I'm Shirley Grover

I am an avid traveler, a seeker of truth and light, an appreciator of a good joke and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Born to an Italian mother and an American father, I grew up the child of two cultures. I enjoyed the culture and cuisine of Italy with the taste of American culture and ingenuity. I am the oldest of five children, all of us unique and individual which makes up the blessing that is my family I am currently serving a full time mission for my church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This position allows me to do what I love, work with others and bring them happiness. I love to travel the world and see new places. I'm currently working towards the goal of visiting every continent before the age of thirty. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and sky diving. I am a recent college graduate and am looking forward to attending law school in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the The Gospel of Jesus Christ is restored upon the earth today. I am Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and know that it is true. I am a Mormon because when I abide by the teachings consistently, my life is happier and full of purpose and joy. I am a Mormon simply, because I know it's true.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving an full time mission for my faith in the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Mission. This means that for 18 months, I leave my family and my work to preach and spread the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ to the area in which I have been assigned. My days consist of study of the scriptures followed by proselyting and teaching.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Shirley Grover
God is our loving father, and we once dwelt with Him. He is a God made of flesh and bone. We are created in his image.His nature is relateable to the same attributes a loving father would have on earth: Merciful, kind, and just. And just like a loving father on earth, He wants to know about us. He wants us to talk with Him.He wants to know our sorrows, our joys, our concerns and things we don't understand. Not only does He want He want to hear from us, He wants to talk to us and help us with our problems and concerns. He wants to council with us and help to become the best we can be. Show more Show less
