Hi I'm Shane Stephenson

and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am attending university, studying Business Management. I love creating and playing music. I like a lot of sports, indoors and out.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I love the Book of Mormon because it testifies of Christ, supporting the Bible. I believe that Joseph Smith was the instrument God used to restore His true church and gospel. I choose to be Mormon because these basic things have remained true, throughout my life, in my mind and in my heart. I have seen over and over again that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to live that leads to lasting happiness, although it is not always easy.

How I live my faith

I have spent the last two years of my life teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and serving the people of beautiful British Columbia, Canada as a full time missionary. I like to help the community I live in by doing service projects with people of all faiths.

Are Mormons Christians?

Shane Stephenson
Yes. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. "Mormon" is our catchy nickname, but we are really The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Show more Show less
