Hi I'm Cheri Best

I grew up in South Dakota as a farm girl. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I grew up in South Dakota as the only member of the church in the town. I loved it because it was my way of sharing the gospel by just being an example to others. I now live in Utah, married and have 5 wonderful children. I work with the Elderly in their homes. It is fun to hear about their life and it makes me ponder on my own.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I lived in South Dakota growing up, the nearest church was 60 miles away. My mother took all 6 of us to church. Her faith and testimony was an example to me growing up. Through her, I built my own testimony of the gospel. I know it's the true church because it makes sense to me, I'm happier, I feel His eternal love for me. I have read the Book of Mormon and feel His sweet confirmation that what I am reading is true.

How I live my faith

By being a member of the church, I have participated teaching children from 3-12, helped organize activities for the church, taught the adult women and have even gone to girls camp!! I have felt His love and guidance through serving in the church. It's the best ever!!
