Hi I'm Cheryl F.

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. I'm a wife, mother, grandma and a caregiver for older adults. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work in health care, and I spend alot of time with residents who have Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. I also enjoy reading, cross stitch, spending time with my grand-daughter, and creative writing.

Why I am a Mormon

From the time I was a small child, I think I have always known that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me...and that He was watching over me and guiding me on a path back to Him. I joined the Methodist Church when I was 12, and I have many good memories of what I learned there, my participation in the church choir, and the friendships I started there. But I always felt there was something missing.....until I learned about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, through two missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Here were the things I already knew in my heart, but didn't know how to put into words! I know the Book of Mormon is true, and I love it. It testifies of my Savior and His love for me, and it is a second witness of Christ's Atonement and His Resurrection....He did it for ME! And he did it for YOU! And he loves each of us and wants us to follow Him back HOME to our Heavenly Father!

How I live my faith

On Sundays, I teach a class of 3 yr olds at Church. They are so full of life and enthusiasm, and I learn as much from them as I hope they do from me and my co-teacher. Our lessons are from the manual "I Am A Child of God", which speaks of all the blessings our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ have planned for us. The lessons help the children begin to recognize how important they are: what blessings we all have; and how we can show gratitude to our Heavenly Father for all He has given us . I also enjoy visiting with my sisters in the Church, and sharing our faith in the Savior and helping wherever I can. I feel my "everyday" job also helps me live my faith as I serve, assist, and truly listen to the concerns of my elderly residents and try to make their days a little brighter.
