Hi I'm Sharon Johnson

I lived most of my life in Seattle but moved to Utah after retirement. I raised 8 children and worked as a paraeducator there.

About Me

I love to make homemade cards, do needlework, gardening, canning and most domestic skills. I love nature and the sciences. I worked as a paraeducator in a low income middle school mostly with Special Education students but also as a remedial reading coach. We have had many pets through the years from dogs and cats to snakes, pygmy goats, birds, ferrets, tarantulas, chickens, etc. I have raised 8 children and have 26 grandchildren who I love dearly.

Why I am a Mormon

There is no other religion on this earth today that teaches so thoroughly by the spirit. His strength and goodness are felt wherever the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is established. Christ and His atonement are integral parts and can not be separated from it. It is a whole life religion not just a Sunday one. The gospel as presented by the LDS Church has answered all my deepest questions about life and why we are here. I will be eternally grateful to my Father in Heaven for having been given the privilege to have it in my life.

How I live my faith

I have held through the years almost every calling there has been in the Primary organization including president, counselor, teacher development leader, nursery leader, pianist, etc. mostly in the ward but also in the stake. I have held most of the callings in the Young Womens program including president, counselor, teacher, and girls camp director. I have also served in the Relief Society as a counselor, music leader and pianist, and teacher for many years as well as a visiting teacher from the time I was first married. I have served over 20 years in the Cub Scouting program and served as the ward choir pianist and the ward organist for over 15 years. Every calling was accepted with trepidation but also with knowledge that the Lord would sustain and help me, and He did. I have grown to love and appreciate all those I was called to serve and to serve with. Every calling taught me so many new things not only about how to do things but also about life in general.
