MEET THE ORGANIZER

My name is Laura Sherif.
GOD gave me life because of HIS LOVE ! ! !

The museum was organized and arranged for God's glory... and by His instruction.

The start of the museum began in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
This area of the world is full of so many different kinds of GOD's beautiful animals.
This area of the world has a rich history of carving the beautiful animals of God's amazing Creation in wood.

Before I was born GOD placed an intention in my heart to help every animal of His amazing Creation
and I wanted to help them in every way !


He started me to learn about wood carved animals when I was 3 years old ...
when He led me to a little carved Noah's Ark with a few animals at a Church sale for 5 cents...
and
there He had me declare that I was going to make a museum for Him.

Such a declaration results from the dreams GOD places in our hearts

The dream GOD placed in my heart has made me thoughtful of animals all my life.

about how the Lord made them all ... beautiful .. strong .. graceful .. beautiful as babies .. !!!

about them living wild and free ..
traveling through the forests and oceans .. the sky .. the trees ..
the mountains .. the streams .. the soil .. the caves ..

living the lives GOD blessed them with ..
enriching GOD's beautiful planet with their presence ..
filling the air ... with the wondrous sounds of nature ...
song of birds .. humming of bees ..  beating of wings .. splashing in the water .. barking .. growling ..
chirping of insects .. roars .. calls .. whistles ..
all of their wonderful sounds that make this Earth sound like home to me ...
like the croaking of a tree frog on a summer night ..
the call of an alligator looking for a mate ..
the tapping of a woodpecker ..
the whistle call of a cardinal ..
the cak of a bald eagle ..
the slap of a beaver tail on the water ..
the trumpet blow of an elephant ..
the honk of a goose  ..
the laugh of a horse  ..

the flash of their colors .. their eyes  .. sparkling and glittering in the night ..
their wings as they fly around and above ..
the iridescence of their feathers .. the colors of their fur ..

the way these beings create the very beauty that makes Earth so so so breathtaking ..
THE WAY GOD MADE IT ALL ! ! !


GOD always places dreams such as the one HE gave me ... within our hearts ...
and .. so the idea for a museum belongs to GOD and GOD alone ...

DOING WHAT GOD HAS ASKED IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD !

so .. over many years .... GOD encouraged me to study and read about animals...

many books about animals required other books to be able to make use of the information within them !!
a regular dictionary and a zoology dictionary ..
.... read a bit and stop to look up word after word after word ..
then read the part in the book again ..!!!
so it was often a slow process ..
but a super important component of obedience to GOD ...
" For this is the love of GOD,
that we keep his commandments:
and his commandments are not grievous.
"

" God our Savior,
the whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders
"

" God has made you also an heir "
Galatians 4:7

    BIOGRAPHY
    God created me into a family of mountain farmers in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
    who came to Virginia from England in the early 1600's ..

    God raised me in the mountains of Virginia and at the seashore of Connecticut.
    This early exposure to vastly different biomes of planet Earth
    allowed me to have important associations with a tremendous variety of animal and plant life !
    God has privileged me to-experience vastly different geographic environments.
    This upbringing encouraged a tremendous and abiding love of all animals
    and the beautiful Earth
    that GOD made from His LOVE  !
" You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
"
Psalm 63:1
 
" ask the animals and they will teach you "
Job 12:7

    EDUCATION
    GOD has enabled me with an interest in lifelong study ...
    graduating me from Southern Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree
    with a concentration in Education ... a major in History and a minor Geography.
    GOD has blessed me with a lifetime membership in the academic National Honor Society - Phi Alpha Theta.
    GOD arranged for me to be the grateful recipient of numerous academic and community service scholarships
    as an undergraduate and graduate student.
    GOD arranged for me to be accepted into Quinnipiac University School of Law,
    from which I withdrew shortly thereafter, due to complications from cancer.

       Surrendering my will to GOD's perfect will
    fuels an ongoing study of .. animals . the earth . and most important of all ... the Word of GOD.

    I HAVE BEEN PURSUING THE LORD ALL MY LIFE !
" Anyone who does not continue in the teaching of Christ,
does not have God;

" and this is love:
that we walk in obedience to His commands.
his command is that you walk in love
"

LIVING FOR GOD
    GOD instructs us what to eat and has enabled me to be a devoted VEGAN !  
    It is how GOD planned for life on earth to be for all of us
    including all the amazing animals too ! ! !
" the LORD God commanded the man, saying,
Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat
"

who says to you,
Do not fear;
I will help you.

AMAZING ANIMAL ASSISTANCE

    HELPING ANIMALS IS A WAY TO BE A SERVANT FOR GOD !
        
    Insects and worms do so much for the planet .. they make a world for us all ..
    to always express gratitude to GOD by helping them is a reward in itself.
    The LORD has enabled me to rescue and help honeybees . earthworms . all sorts of insects for my entire life ..
    I will pick them up if they are stranded on the sidewalk or road .. if they are wet ..
    It is my privilege and my blessing from GOD to be of assistance to them ...

    OFF OF THE ROAD AND TO AS SAFE A PLACE AS SHE COULD.
    SHE USED THE LAST OF HER ENERGY TO TRY TO PROTECT HER LITTLE BABIES ..
    SHE WAS A HERO MOM !!!

    GOD enabled me to help 2 baby blue jays to reunite with their mom ..
    They were out of their nest and on the ground after 11:00 pm ..
    using heavy gloves and scooping them up into a box ..
    the box inside my car for the night ..
    Then in the morning .. God enabled me to place the box outside on its side so the babies were able to get out ..
    Then the mom came swooping down to get them
    and helped them with her wings to "fly" and hop up and up and up into the tree where their nest was ..
