Hi I'm Shelly

I live in Mesa, AZ. I am a Interior Designer. I am involved in educational charities. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have four sons, ages 20-28 who live in Arizona, Texas, Montana and Mexico. We are now empty nesters and for three years (2012-2015) will be living in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have a BS in Business from UNLV. Additionally, I am an Interior Designer and have been enrolled at the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach, CA. I love Yoga and sunshine. My husband and I are also involved in educational charities in the Philippines, Central America, Cambodia and North America. I have found greater reward than could be imagined when placing the interests of others above my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon faith. I love the value and emphasis it places on family. The doctrines taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints inspire me to be a better person and to live life with joy knowing that life doesn't end here. I will be able to be with my family forever. I am a Mormon because the teachings I have learned and applied have brought me great joy and true happiness. I have direction in life and that has caused me to want to be a better person.

How I live my faith

I work with a youth group of young women ages 12-18, providing meaningful weekly activities, counsel and advice, and instruction of Gospel principles that benefit their current and future lives. I look after three families in my area, befriending and providing assistance as needed. I try to be a good neighbor. I teach my children moral principles of honesty and integrity and encourage them to lead good lives.
