Sharee Byrne, Children’s Religious Exploration 

I was raised in Utah, in a big LDS (Mormon) family. After leaving that religion, I spent my adult life not remotely interested in religion in any form. After I had my twins, I realized that I deeply missed the community that I was raised in. I found the Unitarians at a particularly lonely time of my life, after losing my brother to suicide. I saw immediately the benefits of a Unitarian community. It was refreshing to see a church community where people of all beliefs were welcome- including atheists like myself.

I am happily married to my best friend of almost 20 years. I have three children, a 14 year old son and 6 year old twins. In my spare time, I love to try and create new recipes. I hope to bring my passion for food into our new church community. My professional life has been mostly spent in the outdoor industry. I moved to Montana because of all the opportunities it offers my family and I to do what we love- to be outside. I fall more and more in love with this state the longer we stay. I have moved this little family of mine many times, and I am happy to say we have finally found the place we hope to call home for years to come.

I am hopeful I can bring my passion and enthusiasm for teaching children into the Religious Education program here at the Billings Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. I believe children should be encouraged to question the world around them and to learn all about different belief systems. I greatly hope to inspire in children a passion for learning and critical thinking.
