Hi I'm Shawn

I am a husband, a father and a recent college grad. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm recently graduated in Information Systems. I'm married to a beautiful wife and have an adorable baby boy. I love sports and the outdoors and spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family who were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It wasn't until I was in my early teens that I decided that if i was going to continue attending this church and following its teachings, then I was going to find out for myself it was true. Once, while I was camping, I went off by myself into the woods to find a quiet place where I could be alone. I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true. It was then that an overwhelming feeling flooded my body. I knew from my head to my foot that the Book of Mormon was true! I knew that God had heard my prayers and answered me that day. Since that day i have tried to live true to the teachings taught in the book of Mormon and by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its leaders.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is not easy. I'm not perfect and make mistakes. However, I know that Jesus Christ suffered that I might be made clean if I repent and try to better each day. Some of the ways I do that is by serving in my congregation as a missionary. I get to know our neighbors and invite them to functions and offer to help them in anyway that I can. I also serve a couple families in my congregation. I visit with them monthly in their home and share with them the gospel. I look for opportunities to help them, whether it is giving rides somewhere or bringing by a meal when they are sick. It is through things like these that I try to be better, as well as, bless the lives of others around me.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, Mormons are Christians! We believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer! It is by Him, and through Him that we can return home to live with Him and our Heavenly Father again. He is our perfect exemplar! Show more Show less
