Hi I'm Cheryl

I grew up in southern New Mexico and now I live in Idaho. I chase around 4 kids who call me mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and myself have three boys and one little girl ranging from preschool to high school. They all keep me busy and fill my life with wonder, laughter and proof of God's love. And plenty of messes as well. I love cooking and especially tinkering with seasonings. I read quite a lot, mostly fiction. I play my music really loud when the kids aren't in the car. I have struggled with depression off and on for most of my life, but it doesn't define me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon faith, but that's not why I am Mormon today. Today I am active in my faith because of all the things I know to be true. I have felt the Holy Ghost confirm that the Church is true and headed by a true prophet of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that God loves me and all of his children.

How I live my faith

I currently work as the secretary in the Young Women's organization in my ward. I get to do so many different things there. I organize, supervise, teach, laugh, cry, play, listen and once a year even get to go to girl's camp. I am in awe of the faith and leadership skills of these twelve to eighteen year-olds.
