Hi I'm Shalise

I am a wife and mother. I am a recent college graduate and have successfully completed my first marathon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have recently graduated college and become a mother. I worked very hard to get through school and I try to find a good balance between work, being a mother, being a wife, fulfilling church duties, and pursuing my interests. I love to run, read, sew, cook, learn, spend time with friends and family, and go to the temple. One amazing truth I have learned in my life is that God is the best source of advice in every situation.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I need The Lord in my life every day. Through His one and only true church I am able to receive answers to my prayers by way of personal revelation and also through His chosen leaders, such as the prophets and apostles. This gospel gives purpose and meaning to all of my efforts to do good in this life.

How I live my faith

The most consistent way that I renew strength in my faith is through service. I know that the easiest way to feel closer to heaven is through serving those around us. I visit a few women on a monthly basis to share a gospel message with them and offer any assistance they may need. When I visit these women I have not only had the opportunity to build lifelong friendships but I am also able to be the Lord's hands and do His work. I strive to emulate the Savior in everything I do.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

The living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, is such a great source of strength and guidance for our family. I know that he has been called of God and speaks the words that God needs to have relayed to us, His children. I know this because of the amazing answers to prayers I have had by acting on the council I have received from President Monson. Show more Show less
