Hi I'm Sheri

I am an Elder Law attorney. I enjoy water sports and bee keeping. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to learn at least two new skills every year. I have taken classes or done research on all sorts of things that interest me. In the past couple of years I have taken classes in archery and English horseback riding, studied greenhouse gardening, learned how to stand up paddle board, began painting with watercolors, and learned how to make wire wrapped jewelry. I have also begun keeping chickens and bees (both of which I greatly enjoy). I have an abundance of ideas for additional things that I want to try and to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I became interested in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the example of my high school boyfriend. There was something about him and the way that he treated others that impressed and touched me. I wanted to know what made him different and he shared his feelings about his church and introduced me to the missionaries. I had feelings of warmth and peace as I continued to learn more. What I now identify as the Spirit of God communicated to me through my feelings and in a dream that membership in this church would put me on a path that would lead to a lifetime and eternity of happiness. I experienced deep feelings of peace and joy.

How I live my faith

I am the president of the women's organization at my Church. The motto of the organization is , "Charity never faileth." The women of the organization visit one another each month to support and serve each other. We also strive to do service for families in the Church, for our communities, and for the Church' s international humanitarian efforts. I volunteer for several community organizations that are not part of the Church. I serve as the president for one of these organizations and volunteer my time to others.
