Hi I'm Sharon Denkers

I live in southern CA, I have 5 kids and 2 grandchildren. I have been a member of the church since I was 11.

About Me

I am a mother of 5 and grandmother of 2. I've lived in southern CA for 14 years. I've loved the weather here better than anywhere else I am a teacher's aid for kindergarten during the mornings and I teach my own afterschool class for kindergarten. My goal is to be as loving and respectful to these children as possible in a world where children are treated as a bother. I also taught early morning seminary for 14 years and have a passion for learning and studying the scriptures.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe this is the only true and perfect gospel on this earth. I absolutely believe in the Plan of Happiness - without a knowledge and understanding of this perfect plan I would be a confused, lost and probably and acoholic, since that's what my extended family has turned to in times of trial. Instead, I as long as I am faithful and righteous, I get to experience peace and pure joy from the understand of this genius gospel plan.

How I live my faith

I could not get through this life without prayer, scripture, and family. Just because I am a Mormon, doesn't mean I am protected from the trials of this world. They hit me too! It's how I live this gospel that gets me through it. I pray constantly, on my knees, in my car, and in my heart wherever I am. In my prayers I thank my Heavenly Father for everything He's helped me with that day - which is every thing that's happened in my life! Studying my scriptures helps me see how to deal with my trials and shows me that my life problems are really not that serious and that helps me find humor and balance in everything. Last of all, if I keep my family in the forefront of my life, I find joy and possibilities in all my trials, as well as the strength to deal with anything!
