Hi I'm Cherie Burton

I'm an accomplished business woman, coach, wife and mother. I've lived all over the world and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm happily married with one son and one on the way. I attended the University of Oregon and then Brigham Young University earning a degree in Psychology. I've had the pleasure of working in many different fields including high tech, training, sales, international relocation, and life coaching. I've lived in lots of places including the USA, Thailand, Indonesia, and China.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because this is God's full gospel on the earth today. There are many churches that teach good things or are well intended - but this church has it ALL. My parents joined when I was young after years of unsuccessfully searching for a church that taught the values they were looking for and would bring our family eternal happiness. Even though I was raised LDS, I still had to make decisions on whether the gospel was for me when i became an adult - everyone does. Through prayer, living the gospel and the blessing of the Gift of the Holy Ghost Heavenly Father has repeatedly shown me mercy, love and that this is His church on the earth today. I love love love being a Mormon. It gives my life meaning, purpose, direction, stability, peace, joy and happiness! I literally can't imagine life without the gospel.

How I live my faith

I have served in many different church positions including working with children, teaching youth, teaching adult sunday school and more. Currently I teach the 14/15 year olds in a Sunday School class. In addition I serve as visiting teacher - a great program for women to connect and look out for each other - something so important in today's world.
