Hi I'm Sharon

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a grandmother and I have 4 living grandchildren and 1 grandchild in the Spirit World waiting to be reunited with his family. I am retired and right now I am helping out in the home while my daughter recovers from a severe accident, falling 60 feet while repelling. She received a priesthood blessing at the scene of the accident and another while in the hospital. The doctors say it is miraculous that she is alive and that she is healing as well as she is. She broke her arm, crushed one vertebrae and broke another, smashed her heal on one foot and broke all bones in the other foot. She has had about 12 surgeries, including two muscle graphs and two skin graphs. The love and support we have received from our Ward family has been tremendous and has lightened our load. That's why we are here - to help each other and lighten each others load. It is a commitment we take upon us when we are baptised. This brings joy to our lives and helps us forget about ourselves and serve Heavenly Father's children. On September 11, 2011, my daughter was able to returned to Church along with her family. She felt the spirit as we all did.

Why I am a Mormon

I searched for a Church that honestly cared about it's members. When I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I felt cared for and part of a family. Orginary people striving to improve by following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I feel peace as I obey the commandments and know that when I disobey, I can humble myself, repent and continue to strive to improve. My Father in Heaven loves me and my Savior Jesus Christ loves me enough to give me challenges in life so that I can become the best me possible. I am grateful for my challenges as they have helped me grow and become a better person. I know that Jesus is our saviour, that he atoned for our sins and that he gave his life freely so that we could all live again. If we will repent and humble ourselves so the necessary changes can take place in us we will find joy and peace.

How I live my faith

I know the importance of all members of the church being cared for and watched over. As a visiting teacher, I help watch over sisters in my ward. Along with a partner, we seek to know our sisters and their needs and try to help when the need arises. We discuss gospel principles to strengthen each other and learn from each other. None of us are perfect but we are trying and that is what the Lord wants from us. We must have faith in Jesus Christ and then follow gospel principles to become more like him. I try to set a good example for my grandchildren and other family members. I'm not perfect, I'm a work in progress.
