Hi I'm Sherri

I am a retired teacher. I volunteer at a local historical site and a family history center. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

History has always fascinated me. What was a city like before I came there? Who settled here and why? Children have kept me young. I love to be of service to others So why not put the three together. I volunteer at a local historic site and take 4th graders back to 1840's California and bring them through to the 1920's as I lead them through the homes there. Every group is different, every group teaches me something new. My family's history is equally fascinating. What was it like before I was born? Who settled where and why? My research helps me understand more about who I am. I find it hard to stop there,though. I love to help anyone research their family that I can help. Just ask my friends! Volunteering at the Family History Center fulfills both my desire to be of service and practice my research skills in behalf of others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a life-long member of the church. When I was 14 I attended a youth scripture study group every morning before high school. We studied the Old Testament. The teacher showed us how many of the scriptures foretold of the restoration of the gospel in the latter days. It made so much sense. The more I read the Bible, and the Book of Mormon the more sense they made to my head and my heart. They answered my basic questions: Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going to go when this life is over? I knew it was all true. Because I am a Mormon I have an eternal outlook. I see what life's possibilities are, and not the limitations. I know that I am a precious daughter of God. I have a purpose in His kingdom on Earth and in His kingdom in Heaven.

How I live my faith

King Benjamin in the Book of Mormon told his people that when they were in the service of their fellow beings they were only in the service of their God. I take this very much to heart. I am what is known as a Ward Missionary. I help new members of the church learn more about the gospel, and help teach people who are investigating the church. I am a worker in the temple. I assist those who come to worship. I visit and write sisters in my congregation every month as a Visiting Teacher. When you know the restored gospel is true it's hard not to live my faith.
