Hi I'm Shelly

I have been raised in the church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife of 22 year. A mother of three boy and a teacher. n I recieved my Bachelors degree in Early childhood education. I love to crochet and listen to music. I am a volunteer at my youngest sons school. I love to watch my children play in sporting events. I am a swim mom, two of my three sons love to swim and dive. I spend alot of time outdoors with them in the summer around the pool.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I have been a mormon all my life. When I was a teenager, I had some trials in life and made some poor decision. I saw the changes in myself and in my attitude towards others. I began to see that I was not the same person I had been before. I looked at the decision I had made up tp that point and saw were I went wrong. and started to drift away from the church and the church standards. I had to refelect on the decisions I had made and do some soul searching. I began to pray and ask Heavenly Father for help and guidance. I started to gain my own testimony, I wasn't relying on my parents testimonies anymore. As I searched the scriptures and prayed I began to see what I needed to do to be a better member of the church and a better follower of Jesus Christ. It took me many year and alot of trials and errors to cpme to the point that I am in my life today. I know that through my faith in Jesus Christ and thru Christ's atoinning sacrifce for me that I will be able to return to live with my Father in Heaven again. I will have my family with me through eternity because of my faith and the sealing power of the preisthood on earth to have a forever family. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know with0ut a doubt that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God. Through Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ restored his church to the earth in these latter day. I know President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God that taoks to Heavenly father and Jesus Christ and get revelation for the church in these Latter days. I have a great love for my Savior and know that through righteous living that I will some day return to my Father in Heaven and my ancesters tha have passed on. We will be an eternal family. I love the gospel, the guidance I gain from following the teachings of Jesus Chirst. I say these thing in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings in the church as a youth I was President of the Laurel class (16-18 year old girls), this though me leaderships skills and I learned to loive and work with girls that were different from me. I gained a great understanding and love for these girls that has lasted me a lifetime. As an adult I have had callings in the Young Womens Presidency. I learned to be very humble and know the youth of the church have great testimonies and are willing to share their testimonies with others. I grew to love all the girls and leaders I worked with. These Sisters have a great knowledge and love for the Savior. I taught the 10-11 year old classin Primary. I feel I learned more than they did in our class discussions. These young men and women have tremendous testimonies of the Living God. I gained so many blessings from teaching these young people. I am now serving as the Wrd Librarian. I didn't reealized how great a calling this is. I help all the teachers prepare materials for their classes and the youth I often have stopping by the library to say "HI". I Enjoy the interaction I have with the variety of ward and branch members. I have the great assignment of helping to clean our church building once every 7 or so weeks. This helps me to take more ownership of the build and how it looks. I am more aware of the service that other perform when it is their week to clean and look at the opportunity to serve a gift and a pleasure to serve my Heavenly Father by keeping his house clean. I am a visiting teacher. Visiting with these sweet sisters help my testimony of service grow. I know that these sister help me to see the beauty of service. I have the great opportunity of going to the temple to do service for the dead. Throught these ordinances, I know I am helping unity families for eternity. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ we all my have the opportunity to be forever families.
