Hi I'm Shane Ballance
I was born and raised in New Bern, North Carolina. I am a huge sports fan, with my favorite sport being Baseball. I also enjoy playing video games, watching my favorite TV shows, hanging out with my friends, and going to the many activities that my church offers on a weekly basis. I am currently going to school at East Carolina University , located in Greenville, NC, majoring in Information and Computer Technology. I grew up LDS (Mormon) and ultimately plan to serve an honorable full-time mission.
Why I am a Mormon
My dad was converted by one of his friends before he would end up meeting my mom. He would go on to convert her and when me and my older brother were born we went to church regularly. So I have grown up in the church while having to find a testimony of my own. This wouldn't happen though until I was about twelve or thirteen years old. Finding my own testimony has done nothing but make me a stronger person overall and has gotten me excited to learn more about this gospel, since there is always more to learn and it's really the reason why I'm a member of the LDS (Mormon) church.
How I live my faith
I try to keep the commandments as best as I can on a daily basis, while also reading the scriptures and saying my daily prayers regularly as well.
