Hi I'm Shelley

I am the coordinator for DisAbled Womens Network (D.A.W.N P.E.I) Canada. I have been a member since 1996.

About Me

I am learning to play piano, which has been a lifelong dream of mine. I enjoy being involved with the D.A.W.N. (DisAbled Women's Network) group. I have a beautiful kitty cat named Princess. I love to do crafts. I run the canteen at the lodge where I live. I love to help and serve others-it brings me so much joy.I love butterflies.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church in 1996. When the elders came to my door I wanted to hear what they had to say. I watched a movie years before about a Mormon family and that sparked my interest. The people in the movie were so honest and I wanted to know more. That movie stuck in my head. The elders asked me to read the Book of Mormon and pray and consider how I felt. When I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. I was bed ridden because of a bad back injury so I read the book in less than 3 months. When I read the Book of Mormon I felt the spirit so warm inside me. When I read it I knew it was true. I could relate to Joseph smith because I'd been to so many churches growing up and I always felt like something was missing. When I started going to church I knew it was true. When I came out of the water after being baptized I cried because I was so filled with joy.

How I live my faith

When I first joined the church, I was a Sunday school teacher for the 4 and 5 year-old children. I was in various leadership positions in primary-helping the children learn. I am always trying to become more Christ-like. I live my faith everyday through my way of life. I get up early in the morning to read the scriptures. I gave away my television so that I could be more focused on better activities (prayer, reading scriptures, watching talks from the prophet and apostles, etc.).
