Hi I'm Sheila

I am an Arizona native and an educator. I am a wife and a mother to 3 adorable children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two girls and one boy. I have a degree in Elementary Education and taught second grade for ten years. I like to watch movies, read and spend time with my family. I love my kids and enjoy watching them grow and learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. Both of my parents come from a long line of Mormons. I gained a testimony of my own as a teenager by reading the scriptures and attending seminary daily. I came to understand the importance of the gospel in my life and how Christ blesses me in all that I do. When I moved out on my own to attend college, I realized even more how much this church means to me, and how much I want it to be the center of my life. When I met my husband and decided to get married, I knew I wanted to be married in the temple because there I could be married for all eternity. Now that I have children, I know I can be with my family forever because of the blessings of this Gospel. I am a Mormon because I love the way I feel when I follow my Heavenly Father's commandments. I feel peaceful and happy. The knowledge I have from this gospel gives me hope.

How I live my faith

I am a former second grade teacher. Unfortunately, I was not able to preach the gospel in my classroom but, that does not mean I was not an example to my students by loving them the way the Savior would. I tried my hardest to be a Christ-like teacher. Every Sunday I attend church with my family. At church, I am the secretary for our primary. I attend the children's primary meetings each week. I assist primary teachers and other leaders with the things they need to help the children learn more about the gospel. During the week, I read the scriptures and pray with my family each day.
