Hi I'm Sharon L. Chambers

I grew up in Arkansas. I was baptized when I was 9 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the wife of a devoted husband. I am the mother of four wonderful children - two sons and two daughters. They have blessed my life with 17 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. I love being part of such a loving family who are all active members of the Church. We live many miles apart but get together often and spend special time on the telephone and internet together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful for a mother who recognized the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ when it was first introduced to her when I was just a baby. Our family descend from a surviving child, my great-grandmother, of the Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857. We have studied the history of that event and recognize that even though the massacre was committed by members of the Church, it was not THE church and it did not take away from the foundation of church principles and the great plan of happiness that is offered to us for our obedience and faithfulness. I feel it was a miracle that the gospel came into my life since there were few Mormons in Arkansas and not much information about them. I have been privileged to be guided by gospel tenets throughout my life. I was tutored by great leaders during my youth and developed a strong testimony and gratitude for the Savior's atonement and his love for me.

How I live my faith

I love to serve in the Church and have served four missions with my husband - in a mission presidency, in the Senior Missionary Department at Church headquarters, public affairs in the Europe West Area, and currently serving in the Church-service missionary department at Church Headquarters. In addition, I have volunteered in a reading program at a local elementary school for three years. I have served in many capacities in our ward and most recently served in the Branch Presidency with my husband as we presided over 200 senior missionaries serving at Church Headquarters in Family and Church History and Church administration.
