Hi I'm Shari

I am happily married to my amazing husband Matt. We have 3 kids. My family is everything to me. I love this gospel.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom. I am so happy to have the opportunity to be able to stay home and raise my children. My husband and I have a great marriage. He provides and meets my everyday needs. My faith grows stronger everyday and is strengthened by sweet primary children who I get to see every sunday. I look forward to attending church, so I can leave there with my heart filled with joy. I love taking my family to High school football games. I love to support the youth in our ward and to see them in action! My parents live in Utah and I come from a family of 9. I have 2 siblings that live very close to me who I can rely on in my times of need. I love to see my nieces and nephews whom I love. When my kids are in school and my husband is at work, I like to stay home and clean, sew, think...I do a lot of thinking. I like to think about the things that I am grateful for like tender mercy's, knowing that God has a plan for me. I think about Heavenly Father often and how I know that he is real. Sometimes when I think a lot, I don't get as much accomplished as I would like too. My husband says I am high maintenance. I like to think that I am somewhat simple. I think life is simple but we make it complicated. This is very true in the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel happy when I hear stories of Jesus. I love to hear the primary sing sweet songs of our Heavenly Father's plan. I like to know that while I am not perfect, neither is anyone else. This life is a journey, not a destination. I love my neighbors and fellow ward members. When my family has had a particularly hard day/week/month, they are always there with encouraging words. I believe that this life is a dress rehearsal for eternity. I am glad to have so many years to try to become a better person. I like to be encouraged to give: Give to your neighbor, give to the homeless shelter, give handmade blankets to the newborns in the NICU in hospitals. If you have something to give to your fellow man, give it. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ. I believe that mankind is basically good. This is reaffirmed when I walk through the doors of my church. I like to sing hymns that uplift my spirit. I like to be encouraged to read my scriptures, because I don't know if I would without constant reminders. I like to socialize with people who share my same values: family, kindness, forgiveness. I like the stories of Mormon Pioneers who persevered to find a place to practice religion the way that they wanted while allowing others to practice in their own way. I like to hear encouraging words "If Life Gets Too Hard To Stand, Kneel." — Gordon B. Hinckley "You have not failed until you quit trying." — Gordon B. Hinckley "Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves." — Gordon B. Hinckley Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight." — Gordon B. Hinckley Why I'm a Mormon...I just like it. I believe it to be true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve others. When my neighbors or friends are sick, I will offer my help whether I take a meal into them or help in another way. I like to visit the lonely or elderly as they have so much to offer! I like to listen to their stories because they can help me by sharing their words of wisdom. It is very challenging today raising a family and I am grateful that I can be an influence and an instrument in the needs of others.
