Hi I'm Shellee

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Orem, Utah. A town with fruit orchards and a view out our back window of the Timpanogos mountains.

About Me

I'm a wife and mom of 7. I thought my life couldn't be happier. Then our children started getting married and we were blessed with grandkids! So far, we have 7. I love being with my family and I enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, mountains, riding my bike. Indoors I love to quilt, decorate and create.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a good family and we attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I had a happy childhood with wonderful memories with my famiy. I was baptized at the age of 8 which is the age we are baptized in our church. I was a happy child and I felt safe, secure and loved. There came a time when I was a young teenager where I questioned why I was here on the earth and what was the purpose of life. I knew what I was taught, but did I really believe it? Was there really only one true church on the earth? Was it the church I was already attending? I ponder these and had to seek out for myself. I noticed that when I was attending church meetings, reading the Book of Mormon, and living by the values I was taught in my home, I had a peaceful and calm feeling inside. I came to know that I was feeling the spirit of the Holy Ghost which testifies of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love serving in our church. I have had many different callings. I have been a teacher to all ages. I especially love to teach children. I learn alot from them. I am currently a cub scout den leader to 9 very active nine yr olds. Scouting helps boys become great men. All 3 of my sons have earned the rank of Eagle Scout. I hope I can help my little den to become great men, husbands and fathers.
