Hi I'm Shirley

Born in a Muslim country, raise a buddhist, catholic school, my first born son died a missionary in Romania, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a stay at home mom. I have a Mater degree. I work for a few years, gave it all up to stay home to raise our children. It was not easy to give it up. Would do it again. We love to travel and learn. My family and I love to read, the outdoors, music and the arts. We believe that if we truly love our spouse and children, we would want to be with them for all eternity and not till death do us part.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a Muslim country, my father raised me a Buddhist, went to a Catholic school, had a Hindu best friend, I was a born again Christian, read the Koran and the bible, studied different religions to understand more, read the Book of Mormom, got baptised a Mormon, because it has the most logical principles. I always felt that if God loves us as much as he did the old testament time and gave them living prophets, he would give us a living prophet in this day and time to guide us. No teenagers could possibly made up scriptures and history like those in the Book of Mormom. I believe in the teachings of the Mormom Church so much, that we allowed our first born son to volunteer as a missionary, paid his own way, and died while he was a missionary in Romania. It has not been an easy journey, I have faith in my beliefs and the teachings of Jesus Christ in the bible and the Book of Mormon, that I am willing to take one step at a time each day or crawl a step at a time each day, while I missed my son. I too hope those who read my words and testimony, will read the Book of Mormon, and pray to see if the words are not from God. If you read it, and believe in the teaching, that you would contact the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints or its missionaries. It is not a easy religion to live by the teachings, but worth it. You have nothing to lose. My son was willing to give his life for it, knowing before he went that it might be a possibility.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. We serve our community and church it ways that are needed. I visit teach sisters in my ward with visits and lunches or what ever is needed. My husband and son hometeach their families and do what is need to help out and keep and eye on them. I like to cook and bring them treats. My husband is a leader of the youth and I help out through feeding them and friendships. We open our home to people in our church and community by having social gatherings and dinners often at our home.
