Hi I'm Shaelee

I'm studying to be a teacher. I love my family. I often have my nose in a good children's book. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of five children with two older brothers and two younger half-sisters. My family is my favorite. We love to play games and make sticky popcorn together. I am currently studying to be an elementary teacher. I love being with the students. Teaching is exhausting, but very rewarding. During the time that I am not trying to plan a lesson, I am with friends and family, planning a hiking trip. I love being with people, and being outside. I am so grateful God has blessed me with good people and beautiful mountains. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family. When I was little, I trusted in my parents' guidance and relied on their belief that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was God's true church on the earth. As I have grown older, I have learned for myself, through prayer to Heavenly Father, that this is His church. The Book of Mormon is a book from God. It is an ancient record of the people in the America's translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith. It is another testament of Jesus Christ, along with the Bible. The Book of Mormon brings people closer to Jesus Christ and to God.

How I live my faith

I am grateful to have my faith play a role in every day of my life. I rely on Heavenly Father and His counsel in this time of my life where I need to make many important decisions that will shape my future. He is good to listen to my concerns as well as the things I am happy about. I live my faith by reading the scriptures every day. The Book of Mormon brings light and peace into my life. Every time I read it. As I read the Book of Mormon I can feel God's love for me and for the people in the book. I feel like there are people I can relate to in the Book of Mormon. I know Heavenly Father has given that book as a way for us not to feel alone. He wants to be a part of our lives every day.
