Hi I'm Sharie

I love going to the movies. I grew up in Utah. I'm a mormon

About Me

I graduated high school early. I Love to sing just not very well. My favorite thing to do is hang out with my friends and family. Trying new things is fun for me. Im a utah girl at heart but i'm from california. Movies are something i'm in love with along with eating. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is my passion. So much so I decided to go on a LDS mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from difficult circumstances. My dad was murdered when I was four. When I was seven I was token away from my mom and put into foster care. Three days later I was taken to my moms parents house whom later adopted me. My grandparents were Mormon and that is how i was introduced into the church. I had a very hard time copping with not living with my mother and It was hard sometimes to go to church. I had a period of time where I was struggling with life and I got started to dedicate myself more to the church. I would feel the Holy Ghost testify that the church is true over and over again at different periods of my life as I acted and prayed to our Heavenly Father. It wasn't just when I was going through hard times with my family but also when I had happy moments. I realized Jesus Christ is with me all the time. He never leaves our sides! While growing up if I didn't know something was true I would pray about it. Like if the Book of Mormon was another testament of Christ, or if Joseph smith was a true prophet of god, or if we have a living prophet today, or if the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and each time I would get a answer! I know this church is the true church of Christ. I know Joseph smith restored Jesus's church back on the earth! I also know with all my heart that the Book of Mormon is filled with truth! Ii have prayed to know and I received a answer. God loves his children so much. I know he loves me and I love him and Jesus Christ for his sacrifice.

How I live my faith

I always participated in my church. Starting from the age of twelve i was ahead of the 12-13 year old girls, as far as making them feel loved, comfortable and not lonely. I was in charge with the activities that we would do every week with the help from the ladies that were in charge of all of us girls from 12-18. I was also in charge of the 14-15 year olds as well, just helping everyone feeling welcomed. I have always loved doing that because no one likes to feel alone and especially at church. Plus i've made lasting friendships doing that!
