Hi I'm Shelley

I'm a mother of one son. I'm a teacher by profession. I'm a Yorkie lover. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am blessed to have one son. Being a mother and wife brings me great joy. I taught high school English for 18 years until my health needed my undivided attention. I love teaching and learning and developing new talents. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ has been a tremendous blessing not only to me but to my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Latter-day Saint family but that is not why I am a Mormon. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the center of my life and our home. It is because of Him that I am able to become more than I could ever become on my own. It is because of Him that I am able to love and forgive and grow. It is because of Him that I can "soldier on" despite the many trials that I have faced: infertility, divorce, illness, death. And it is because of Him that I have joy and happiness in my life. He is my life.

How I live my faith

I try to emulate my Savior every day through the attributes of faith, hope, and charity. It is because of my faith in Jesus Christ that I love serving others and my family. Faith is action. I serve in the temple once a week, work in the youth organization and try to help others as much as possible. By doing this, my faith grows which in turn fuels my hope and develops charity within me. I want others to see his image in my countenance and feel not only my love for the Savior, but also my love for them.
