Hi I'm Sheila Sorensen

I live in Weiser Idaho, I'm a mother, I'm a school bus driver and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to spend time with my grandkids. I'm a mother of 6 children. I gave birth to 2 of them and inherited 4 more through a second marriage. I raised them all as my own. One of my children was killed when she was 19. I was so thankful for a testimony of the Gospel and my Lord and Savior because that's what sustained me until I could get through my grief. Some of our children are active and some are not. Through my faith I have to believe that one day my other children will come back to church and enjoy all the blessings that come from trying to live a righteous life. I enjoy gardening, bike riding and walking.

Why I am a Mormon

When I decided to start attending the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I was already attending a Baptist church. I got tired of jokes being made about Mormons because I felt that Christ would not do that. I had been baptized into the LDS church as a kid but never really attended on a regular basis but when I started getting Visiting teachers come to my house once a month and visit me I thought that was wonderful. These women just glowed and were so nice and had a lot of kids and there lives were so busy and I wanted to have that too. I've had a lot of trials as well but always my Heavenly Father has helped me through it. I know that this Gospel has all that our Heavenly Father has to offer that is available on the earth today. I also know that there is truth taught in other churches as well and wonderful people that attend those to. I just feel so blessed to have all that is available. We as Christians believe a lot of the same things we as LDS people just believe more. I love this Gospel so much because it's true and there's something for everyone. The children have a program the youth have a program and the adults do to. There are programs for families and singles young and old. Everyone is watched over by having visitors twice a month. Your not alone and you always have a family where ever you go in the church. I have a part in this gospel and I'm always a participator because were all needed by our Heavenly Father to see that his work goes forward . I love my Savior and I'm so grateful for his sacrifice in my behalf and I only want to do what he wants me to. I say this in his holy Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

My calling in the church @ this time is a Missionary. I love to share the Gospel with others because I know that there lives will be blessed if they will put forth the effort to gain a testimony of their own. I've had callings working with the children also with the youth and been in callings teaching the adults and been in leadership as well. My testimony sustains me each and every day and helps me to be happy and have feelings of comfort and joy. I enjoy sharing my bounty with my neighbors and sharing with those who don't have enough or need a helping hand. My testimony just helps me to feel love for my fellow men and women and children.
