Hi I'm Sheighla Petrie

I'm an Idaho girl through and through. I'm an aspiring novelist. And I'm a mormon!

About Me

I'm the youngest of 10 children and I love having a large family. I've grown up with music in my life and that is a big passion of mine. I love sports of all kinds and I love being outside in nature. I love acting and singing and making people happy. I was homeschooled for 9 years and even though it was hard, I wouldn't change it. Through the examples my family has given me I have found faith in my Savior Jesus Christ and I'm so grateful for the foundation I've found in Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been brought up in the church but, like many, I had to find out for myself if it was really true. It wasn't until I was in Junior High that I actually started to develop a firm testimony. Thanks to the support of my family and close friends I was able to make it through some pretty rough times. I discovered love and strength I never knew I had. Being a member of this church has taught me about my worth as an individual and as a daughter of God. It has also taught me the worth of other people as well. Though I'm not perfect I think I have a better understanding of how to love others. I know without any doubt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church on the earth today. I know that we have a living prophet who guides us by direction from Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of this church my whole life. It has taken me a very long time to develop faith in what I believe. I had to discover for myself if I really believed in the teachings of the church. I live my faith through being on a mission. I have chosen to give 18 months of my life away from everything familiar to serve the Lord. I am taking this time to teach others what I have come to know and love as The Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Are Mormons Christians?

Sheighla Petrie
We are in fact Christians! The title of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We believe in His Atonement and His teachings. Our whole purpose is to bring others closer to Christ. He is our Savior and through the Book of Mormon we recieve another witness of His life and sacrifice for us. Show more Show less
