Hi I'm Shalee

I'm a wife, mother of 3, book lover, volunteer, youth leader, t-ball coach, and food fanatic. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was an Army brat and I've lived in 8 states and 5 countries. I attended Brigham Young University, served a mission In Italy and Malta and then married the man of my dreams. We have 3 children who keep me busy. I love to read and write. I love traveling...my next stop will hopefully be to Argentina or Italy or Prague. I love trying new recipes. I love hot weather and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put...I'm a mormon because I have felt the Spirit and know the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ are true. I was raised by a mormon mom and a non-religious dad. I believe that God answered my prayers when I asked that Joseph Smith was a prophet and the Book of Mormon is a true inspired book. Being a mormon is the best decision I've ever made in my life.

How I live my faith

I remember someone gawking when they found out I attended church 3 hours every Sunday. I feel like the time I spend living my faith is little compared to the many blessings that God has given me. The biggest way I live my faith is within my own home. As a mother I feel the heavy responsibility to teach my children between right and wrong. I want them to understand how our choices can affect the joy we feel in life. We pray often in our home- before every meal and as a family before we go to sleep at night. We also try to read from the Book of Mormon every day. Currently I'm the Young Women's President (girls ages 12-18) and we have weekly activities. We learn important principles like virtue and integrity. We organize service opportunities throughout our community. We visit rest homes and help the needy. These youth are amazing and I am thrilled with any chance I get to be around them and feel of their light.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ. It is a collection of writings from ancient prophets who taught about God and His plan of happiness for us. They testify that Jesus Christ is our Savior. Show more Show less
