Hi I'm Sharie

I chose to be happy. I want to make a difference. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in four different states. Each place is unique but beautiful: Utah, Hawaii, Colorado, and Washington. I grew up in the church but I discovered for myself that this was God's church on the earth. I love the outdoors--biking, hiking, running, and anything that can get me in nature. I appreciate being fit. Another passion of mine is music. I play the flute, piano, and some guitar. I love to inspire. One of my favorite hobbies is to smile and make others happy. But what I love most is my family. I am currently serving an LDS mission to share the eternal happiness that I have found.

Why I am a Mormon

The first time I read the Book of Mormon I prayed to know if it was true. I felt this warm and joyful feeling. I knew from that moment forward that the Book of Mormon was the word of God. The feeling felt like God was pouring out His love for me. I know I am a daughter of God. I know my divine purpose. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, who atoned for my sins. Because He atoned for the world, He knows me personally. When I feel discouraged, He lifts me up. He gives us living prophets and apostles who speak the word of God. The words of the prophets have become my strength. Through this church I have learned that I can have a close relationship with my Heavenly Father. I know through faith and the Holy Ghost that this is the restored church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures and words of the living prophets. I pray and look forward to the day that I will meet my Maker. I try to serve my family, neighborhood, and community. Although simple, these daily activities have strengthened my testimony more than anything else. I love attending the temple where I learn about God's love for me. Being a part of this LDS church is being a part of something greater than yourself.
