Hi I'm Sheila

I'm a busy stay-at-home mother of 5. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently surprised my husband for our anniversary by scheduling a skydiving jump! When I'm not jumping out of airplains (okay, that was a one time thing), I stay busy volunteering at my childrens' elementary school, where I'm currently PTO treasurer. I like to help the classroom too by tutoring kids with their reading or math. When I have free time, I like to read books and I enjoy scrapbooking. I wish I had time and money to travel more.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't commit to being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints until I was in my early 20s, even though I went to church sporadically as a child. I became "converted" when I grew to know Jesus Christ and felt His love for me. I have found joy and happiness by keeping the Lords commandments. I am able to gain forgiveness when I make mistakes. We are not here on this earth to fail.

How I live my faith

I have a leadership role in the women's organization in my ward. We strive to help women increase their faith in Jesus Christ, strengthen their family relationships, and serve others. I appreciate the network of support that exists among women to help in times of need. Christ was a great example of compassion and love. I think it would be a better world if we could try to be more like him in loving and serving our neighbors.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

I'm always amazed when people think that "Mormons" don't believe in Jesus Christ. The official name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We believe that Christ created this world under the direction of our Heavenly Father. When Christ was on the earth he organized His church and taught us to love each other as we love ourself. Through his atonement and repentance we can return to live with our families forever in Heavenly Father's kingdom. Show more Show less
