Hi I'm Sharlene Welch

I grew up in Savannah, Georgia where I attended church until I was 16, then after 45 years of being inactive I returned in 2013.

About Me

My favorite pastime is reading. I like to read church literature on gospel topics and biographies of leaders. I was in the U.S. Army for 9 years and traveled to many countries in Europe. I have a great love of soccer and watch every game I can on television or in person. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters and 19 nieces and nephews and so many greats I have lost count... probably about 60 now.

Why I am a Mormon

Having been raised in the church I fell away and looked many other places to find happiness. That was a lost cause. My happiness was only obtained when I returned to the true gospel of Jesus Christ after wandering lost for 45 years. Now each day is filled with joy and happiness.

How I live my faith

I like to volunteer at a local soup kitchen called Rebecca's Cafe that my ward participates in with other local churches. I also teach classes at church for the women in the organization called Relief Society.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost is a comforter and gives us the ability to receive guidance from our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
