Hi I'm Sharod

I'm a small town boy stuck in the big city. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors and spend most of my free time wakeboarding, hunting, fishing, and avoiding the indoors. I am the second of four brothers and enjoy spending time doing just about anything with them or my parents. I am a divorced father of a wonderful 2 year old son. He is the light of my life and I enjoy every minute I am able to spend with him. We spend time on the lake wakeboarding or fishing, going to see his grandparents in Eagar, or just playing with his cars.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that I have a living Savior. I know that he suffered and died for us so that we could return to live with him. I know that he has allowed the true church to be restored once again to the earth through living prophets. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that we have a living prophet on the earth today. I know the Book of Mormon was translated by the gift of God and that it is true. I know that following its teachings and the words of the living prophets will help us live fuller and happier lives.

How I live my faith

I was privileged to serve a mission in northern Brazil for two years. I truly enjoyed teaching and serving the people there. I am no longer a missionary by try my best to be an example to those around me. At church, I love teaching the younger kids about the gospel of Jesus Christ and lessons from the Book of Mormon and Bible.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I love to see the sun rise and understand how everything is set up so perfect that it will happen again the next day. I love to look into the sky at night and see the stars and just how far the heavens reach. I love to see my son and contemplate the miracle of his birth and watch him development from a helpless baby to a growing young boy. I love to learn new things and understand that I know so little about everything that God has created. These are things that tell me there is a God. Show more Show less
