Beyond Death

Salt Lake Temple

Tonight I was part of a program for the youth of our church to help them understand the importance of geneology and doing sacred temple work for those that have passed on. It was a wonderful experience to play the part of someone that has passed away and was now seperated from from their spouse waiting to for someone to find their name and have sacred work done for them.

For those of you not familiar with LDS beliefs, a large part of our sacred work involves uniting families together for those that have passed away. This sacred work is called sealing. Through the LDS Temples with the priesthood authority we are able to take real peoples names that have passed on and stand as proxy for them and do the work they were not able to do in mortality on this earth. A simple way to understand this beautiful sacred work, for example civil weddings the sermon says,"To death til you part," or "For as long as you both shall live," But because of the priesthood authority (the ability to act in the name of God) we are able to be sealed which means beyond death, "For time and all eternity."

As members we find and take names of those passed on, such as ancestors and do the work they were never able to have done. When married inside the LDS temple being sealed means not only you and your spouse will be married for time and all eternity, but your children will be sealed to you beyond death, meaning you will not be seperated as a family. Together for eternity after this mortal existence. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has the true doctrine and gospel of Jesus Christ, so we are able to do this sacred work, because of the Holy Temples dedicated for this purpose.

I testify the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I am so very very grateful that I was married in the LDS Temple by the sealer who had the authority to seal my husband and I for time and all eternity. And the knowledge that my children will be bound to me beyond death is priceless. I encourage those of you that love your family and want to know what happens to a loved one in the family after they have died to go to this website and read about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Know that you can and will see that family member again and can through this holy work be sealed to them beyond death. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Church sites: or Geneology sites: or If you want to know more you can have missionaries of the LDS church teach you about the gospel of Jesus Christ. It will change your life and beyond death.

Well, the last few weeks i've had insomnia. My body and eyes are tired, but my mind is wide awake, jumping from one thing to another. I'm not really that stressed... i do have my few things i contemplate each day. But i'm just not sure why it takes me forever to fall asleep. i don't want to take any medication. i will take some advil-PM, if i have to. But this past weekend my lack of sleep hit me like a brick, and i've had headaches. Anyway, if anyone has any good ideas to make my mind shut off, please do tell me!!!! Not to mention my husband Taylor was gone Tues-Sat for work, and i never sleep as well when he's not next to me. I like to snuggle with a shirt he's just worn, just so i can smell his scent, i love his smell!!!! i'll never let him wear cologne, i love it that much! ~Sigh~ And Taylor had to leave again at 3 AM this morning to go work out of town ~again! And he doesn't have reception, he can only text me! ~UGH!~Anyway, all i know is i'm going to read, cuz i think that'll get my mind & body to relax, hopefully i won't have a hard time going to sleep tonight! Grrrrr!

Sher's Band "The HYPER~DEVILS"

So this is my MUSIC VIDEO!!!! This is me at 20 yrs. old in California right before i moved to Arizona in 2002. Me and my friends made this video, it was such a blast! my friend Brent is the brilliant fella that produced/recorded it, and he's in the band as well, he's playing the keyboard. The band members are Brent-keyboard, Jessica-drums, my bro Gerrit-guitar, Justin-random stuff, and me Sher-singer/bassist. The way we got the band name is hilarious. My friend Jess and I were driving in the car with Brent he said randomly to me "Sher, whats the first word that pops in your head?" i said, "HYPER!" and he asked Jess the same, she replied, "DEVILS!" So there ya have it we named our band 'THE HYPER~DEVILS' is that not the coolest band name or what? (the song is a cover song by an underground band.) Finally after 5 years waiting for Brent to edit, finish, and finally send me the complete video, here it is!!! Ahh!
