Hi I'm Sheila

I am Canadian and mom of 4. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a Latter Day Saint home with 3 brothers. I am married with 4 children. I enjoy spending time with my family by checking out different parks & recreation areas around our city. I love scrapbooking and doing family history. My kids and I love sing star kareoke and playing rock band. When my girls were younger I was a Girl Guide leader for 3 years and enjoyed helping the girls earn their badges and doing fun camp outs. Now I enjoy being on the school Parent Activity Comittee and being involved in my childrens education.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Latter Day Saint home with loving, kind parents and 3 brothers. The church members became my extended family. There were so many wonderful and kind people that were great examples to me growing up. I could go to any of them for help or advice but it wasn't till I went through a divorce and was a single mom of 2 that I was truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know Jesus Christ knows me personally and loves me. He knows my trials and my triumphs and lifts me in times of need. I am happier knowing who I am, where I came from and where I am going. Knowing my children can have this same joy and peace, is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I work with the children in our church. I teach them every Sunday. I love to see their eyes sparkle and shine when they tell me about our Heavenly Father and the love He has for them. I have also worked with the women in our church planning activities for us to grow together and bond with each other. One of my favorite was a Super Bowl activity where we broke into groups, made our own chants, cheers and flags and showed them to everyone. Lots of fun & giggles. Then we played assorted relays and laughed so hard our sides hurt. We truly came to love each other by having fun & being ourselves and being silly with each other. I have also worked with the young women in our church. Helping plan girls camp and advising them on family, school and most importantly boys!! Serving in the church has brought me so many great opportunities to grow and I have many wonderful memories!!
