Hi I'm Cheryl

I am an active grandmother of 7 beautiful grand children and still a mom of 6 children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I moved to St. George from Ohio, upon my husband retiring. I love to horseback ride, enjoy sign language, hiking, walking, gardening, cross stitch, doing family research, reading and attending musicals and plays. Love to be with family, especially spending time with Grand children. But love to be with my adult children too!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was just a baby. They both came from different religious backgrounds and neither was happy with their religion. Luckily some Missionaries knocked on their door and they accepted the gospel and were baptized. Though they joined and went to church, I had to gain my own testimony. Through prayer and scripture study (not just reading) I slowly but surely gained my own testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true and living Church upon the earth. I have attended other religion services, as a youth and a a few churches that currently have bands in them. I did not go to these because I was looking. I already KNEW that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true. I went out of courtesy to my host or hostess. I knew from reading, studying and praying with a strong desire to know and the Holy Ghost touched my heart and mind in a way I can't describe. It moved me to tears of joy. I knew at that point that God knew me, that he loved me, and I was his daughter. I knew that what I had been doing pleased him. I was so humbled to know these things. My membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is dear to me. I have a testimony that Joseph Smith was and is a Prophet of God, I know that he spoke to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and received an answer to his prayer of which church to join, which was none, I know this church has the fulness of the gospel, the principles and ordinances which will lead one back to the presence of their Heavenly Father. I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God, my Savior and Redeemer. That it is only through his grace that we can be forgiven of our sins and faults through repentance and obedience to his laws and commandments. I know I have a loving Heavenly Father who loves me. I know this through the Holy Ghost. This is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed working with the Deaf and helping out at the Deaf Center in St. George, Utah. I currently enjoying writing my Church's Branch History. I have in the past been able to teach youth gospel principles, such as faith, obedience, love, kindness, being friendly, service, the importance of studying the scriptures and coming to know their Savior, Jesus Christ. The youth come to what is called Early Morning Seminary, which started at 5:50 in the morning ending at 6:45 so the students could make it to school before 7:10. They were an example to me! I have served as a Camp Leader, teacher in Sunday School and served as a leader over a Deaf Women's Group. I was humbled to accept an opportunity to serve in the Deaf Women's Group, it helped me to grow in my signing skills and love for the "Deaf" especially in the community of St. George but also those special friends I first met in Houston, Texas! I really enjoyed reading and tutoring in the schools, both here in St. George area and Spring, Texas. Kids teach us so much more than we do them.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus is the God of the Old Testament, "Jehovah" and the Great "I Am". Christ himself told the people of his day that he was "I Am" Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. It is through his suffering in Gethsemane, taking upon him our sins and suffering and upon the cross and death that we can receive forgiveness of our trespasses and sins and can be comforted in times of trial. Not only this but saved us from physical and spiritual death. All mankind will be resurrected, for Christ overcame death, being the first to be resurrected upon this earth. If we repent of our sins and endure to the end the power of the atonement will help us overcome spiritual death. Jesus truly is our Savior and Redeemer, the only Begotten of the Father, the promised Messiah and Deliverer. This I know to be true. Show more Show less
