Hi I'm Sheli

I love my family so much! I am going to serve a mission in Tacoma Washington. I play the piano and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I graduated high school last year and am attending Brigham Young University-Idaho. I have 3 siblings (2 of which are married to great people), wonderful parents, a beautiful chocolate Labrador, a leopard gecko, and a new baby nephew. In my spare time, I love playing the piano. My dream is to one day own a grand piano in my living room of my future house.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom and her family grew up in the church but my dad did not. If it weren't for my mom meeting and converting my dad I probably wouldn't be here and I probably wouldn't be a member. I am so grateful for my parents because they raised me and taught me to do what is right. Because I grew up in the church, I got baptized at the age of 8 and I don't really remember much of it but I do know that I made a good choice. I don't think I really gained a true testimony of Joseph Smith until my Freshman year of high school, when I started to go to Seminary. We were studying Doctrine and Covenants and I never really knew what that book meant until that year and now I do. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I know He died for me and atoned for my sins. I know that God is our loving Father and He sent His Only Begotten to die for us all. I have a testimony of eternal families and I know that I can be with my loved ones who have died. I love the Book of Mormon and the truth it testifies of. I know without a doubt that we have a living prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson, who loves and guides us. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that He helped him translate the Book of Mormon and through revelation, restored the true church to the earth. I know that my Redeemer lives!

How I live my faith

I have been a member my whole life and growing up I was the only girl my age in my ward. I was always with the boys who were my age. I was in charge of myself my whole time I was a youth (age 12-18).
