Hi I'm Shereen
I'm a Mormon.
Hi my name is Shereen and I come from a large family with 5 brothers and 2 sisters. I loved growing up in a big family because it was never lonely! I have been married to a wonderful man for 30 years we have 4 great children. Our oldest is our one and only daughter, who has blessed us with our 4 beautiful grandchildren. We have a son who lives in San Francisco with his wife. Our next son is going to BYU and our youngest son still lives at home. I have worked in the Optical field while raising our children but chose to not work these last couple years and enjoy the time with our youngest son. I love the outdoors skiing, biking, hiking, and golf, (when my husband has the patience to take me.) We live in Arizona and love the beautiful winters here. I love that there is a strong mormon influence in the area we live in.
Why I am a Mormon
I come from a long line of faithful mormons. I have always had a belief in the truthfulness of the gospel. Without the church I don't know that we would have been able to raise our children to become the wonderful people they are today. The gospel foundation that was set for me at a very young age has truly made me who I am today. I have had tough times in my life as most people do but the knowledge that my Father in Heaven loves me and watches over me has been a huge blessing for me. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and I am so grateful that I can be with them forever. I am grateful for my savior Jesus Christ and all that he did for us. I try to follow his example and always look for the positive in every person I meet.
How I live my faith
I love to serve in the church and always accept what ever calling that is given to me. I am currently teaching the 6 year olds and I love the enthusiasm they have even though there is 12 kids in my class and sometimes hard to keep there attention. I truly believe that you come to love those you serve and I love all these children! I feel like the program for the women in our church is such an inspired program. My calling as a visiting teacher even though it is hard to find time to do, is a great way to stay in touch with other women. You really come to love and appreciate the wonderful women that you get to know through this program.
