Hi I'm Cherie

I live in Hawaii. I'm a nurse and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with family, hanging out at home or spending an afternoon at the beach, being together is most important. I work part time as a registered nurse.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Christian but still had many questions and fears concerning death. When I got married I was very uncomfortable with the statement "as long as you both shall live" and "till death do you part" being part of our vows. As we prepared to welcome our first child, my search continued for hope and peace in a family unit after death. I mentioned my concerns to a dear friend and was led to hear the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I wanted so much to believe in this plan of happiness being taught to me. As I prayed, read and gave serious thought to this new information I had received I was overwhelmed with the personal confirmation in my mind and heart of its truth. Today, over twenty years later I am still firm in my understanding of an eternal family and am grateful to have this peace in my life.

How I live my faith

In our home, prayer and scripture study are important. Over the years this has been the foundation of learning gospel truths. Supporting my children as they learn and grow as individuals in the gospel has been my greatest challenge and reward. I work alongside several women to organize and conduct wholesome activities centered on Christ for the children in our area as well as their local leaders. We enjoy visiting them regularly at their Sunday meetings. .
