Hi I'm Sheryl
I'm an urban school teacher. Building strong friendships is important to me. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.
After returning home from a full-time mission in South Africa, I realized I couldn't help everybody everywhere, but I could help somebody somewhere. Becoming a teacher was the way I felt like I could fulfill that personal mission. I love meeting new people and strengthening the friendships I already have. There are many things that I consider fun: hanging out with my family, eating great food, being a matchmaker and dancing!
Why I am a Mormon
When I was 10 years old two young men (missionaries) came to our door and I knew right away that what they had to say was what I was missing in my life. From that point, every good choice I've made has been because of my Church membership (choosing where I went to college, deciding to serve a mission, choosing my profession). When one truly understands who they are as a child of God and that they have a purpose here in life, as I've learned through my membership, then anyone can be happy. That's what the gospel of Jesus Christ has done for me; helped me to be happy because I have found God's truth.
How I live my faith
Attending church every Sunday possible allows me to remember the promises I made at baptism and the lessons I learn while attending strengthens me. Inviting my friends and family to come with me to church to learn more about my faith is something that's important to me. I know this is God's true church on the earth. I must share it with others. Praying daily to my Heavenly Father allows me to give thanks and ask for guidance in my life.
