Hi I'm Shirlene Buckway

I am the mother of ten children of whom six are married and have blessed my life with 17 grandchildren, thus far.

About Me

I love to cook and take care of my family. I have always wanted a big family and love the joys and challenges that come with it. I like doing puzzles which these days I do not have time for, but I think what I learned from doing them in my not so busy time of life, helped me to enjoy the solving and organizing, and enjoying the finished picture of having many lives to fit together and the joy that comes when a special moment or memory has been achieved.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life, but have come to have a personal testimony that this is the same gospel that was organized by the Savior when he was here on the earth. I know the teachings from his gospel has brought my life great joy and happiness and especially hope as the trials of life have come. Because of my faith I live I can know that there is a purpose in all things and that I have a Father in Heaven and His Son who is my Savior that I can put my complete trust in and know they are always there for me.

How I live my faith

I love having the knowledge that living my faith has brought. I have been a life time member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am currently teaching Sunday School and I a Gospel Doctrine teacher. I have gained so much from this experience teaching because of what I have learned from studying the Book of Mormon, Old and New Testament and now currently studying the Doctrine and Covenants. I know they each are the words of God and contain within them an opportunity for anyone to come to know that they have a Savior, even Jesus Christ.
