Hi I'm Cherai

I am a full time Domestic Engineer of 3 great kids & a patient husband. I love learning and all things electronic. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time mom and a full time Disciple of Christ. My day consists of family scriptures, family prayer, meals, driving children to and from, teaching, learning, serving and loving. We moved out into this rural community this past year so we can teach our children the value of work and have a bit of elbow room. My husband and I grew up in a small town together and learned the lessons of work early on. We wanted our children to have those same life lessons. We now have 2 pigs, 2 goat, 2 cows, many chickens, and 2 dogs. We have quite the zoo at our house. We have learned so much and there are so many lessons still to be learned. Not only about animals but about God's many tender mercies and gifts that He gives to us each day. All things come from Him. I was raised in an active LDS family of 5 girls. When I was young, my self employed father broke his back and was not able to work for many years. Money was tight but I would not have had it any other way. Those tough times made me who I am. I enjoy serving and have empathy for those who have less.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a life long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am also a convert. I was taught by my parents but I did not have a conviction of the Gospel until I turned 15. I was at a crossroads. I went unwillingly to a Youth Conference that summer. When I was there a young lady spoke about the things that had happened to her and I realized I was like her in her story. She had made some poor choices and had some friends that were not good. She was caught up in things she was taught by her parents to be wrong. She did not like her unhappiness and decided she wanted to know for her self who she needed to be. She spoke about reading in Mosiah and how it touched her and that she decided to change. I was moved and I decided I needed to decide for myself what path I was going to take. I started to read in Mosiah, in the Book of Mormon, and was touched. I prayed to know of it's truths. I did not get any answers. Over and over I prayed, read and pleaded to get an answer. It was weeks and weeks. I was diligent. I came to the story of Alma the Younger and his conversion story. I remember the morning vividly when I was finally given an answer. The feeling was so warm and happy I could not deny it. It was my answer. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true and that Christ loved me and wanted me to be happy. From that moment on I have been a full time Disciple of Christ and have tried to serve Him in every way I know how.

How I live my faith

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we are given callings. These are inspired positions, or unpaid jobs if you will, directed through the priesthood. Through out my life I have been given many callings. I have never turned down a calling despite my feeling of inadequacies. No matter what my calling is I put my whole heart an soul into it. I do these callings because the Lord gives me all and this is a very small way to show him I appreciate Him and all the He gives me. In John 21:16 Christ said to Simon "lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep". I love my Savior so I try and feed His sheep. Service is what makes me happy. Now that I have children it is what I want them to see so that they will pattern their lives after the Savior so they will be happy.
