Hi I'm Sheryl

I am a reader. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a large Mormon family, surrounded by their examples. I work as a waitress. Jane Austen and J.K. Rowling are my favorite fiction writers. I love learning about new cultures and their histories. Music is my language of choice. I've played piano for over a decade and long to learn violin.

Why I am a Mormon

Despite growing up in the church, it was my choice. No one made me read the Book of Mormon, no one made me say my prayers or actively participate in church activities- I never had to listen to my parent's suggestions. I chose, everyday, to get up and go to early morning seminary. I chose to let my friends know that I wouldn't drink because I chose to hold to the standards I was taught growing up. Reading and Praying about the Book of Mormon cemented my testimony- I know this church is true, I know Joseph Smith was a prophet and I know that God has restored His authority upon the earth today. With that authority, I know that my family can be together forever and that one day, I will have my own eternal companion- Life has enough challenges and trials, but I know that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides me with guidance from a living prophet today to help me through anything life throws at me. I know this with all of my heart, and no one can take that from me.

How I live my faith

In every aspect of my life, at home with my family or at work with my co-workers and customers, I live my faith by being the best me. I pray to know how to be my family's peacemaker, seek for ways to share the light that my savior has given me with those around me. My music, my actions, my words, my life. My Faith.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are the most basic unit of society. We do not choose the members of our family, but we choose how we interact with them. We may choose to separate with the years and forget our ties, or grow closer and build on the strength that can come from being a family. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We belive that God is our loving Heavenly Father, that He has a perfected and glorified body. We belive that He knows each of us individaully and loves each of us. We believe He sent us to this world with a plan enabling each of us to return to Him. Show more Show less
