Hi I'm Shaun

I'm a husband, a father through adoption, a musician, and a I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my best friend! She is so beautiful and so amazing. We are the parents of two amazing children that joined our family through the miracle of adoption. We live in Utah. My wife is a stay at home mother where she teaches and cares for our children. We love and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Becoming a member of the church, a mormon, was one of the best decisions I ever made. It has helped me see what is truly important in life. It has given me purpose and direction, and it has helped me learn to truly love. I love being an member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love being Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Well... There is no short answer to this question. I'm not a Mormon because my parents made me join the church-they actually aren't Mormon. I'm not a Mormon because my friends are Mormon. I am Mormon because I have felt that it is true. When I was taught about the church I couldn't deny the feelings that I had. I wasn't looking to join a church - heck, I didn't even know if God really existed. But I became a Mormon because I received a very specific answer to a specific question. I"m a Mormon because it helps me be the person that God wants me to be. I'm a Mormon because it makes me a good husband. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. I'm a Mormon because it's real.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day! Since I joined the Church in 2002 I have tried to live a life that Jesus Christ would be happy about. I am not perfect - I'm not even close... but I am trying to be a better person every day. My faith helps me a lot in my marriage. My wife and I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to read the scriptures and prayer every day. We make it a goal to attend the temple as much as possible and go to church every Sunday. We are striving to be the best people we can be.
