Hi I'm Shawn Metcalf

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for 2 1/2 years. I go to school at Brigham Young University. I am working towards my Masters degree in Public Administration. I finished my Bachelors degree in Recreation Management this past summer. Hobbies: Extreme unicycling and pogosticking. Gaming.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the book of mormon is the word of god, as is the bible. I know that I will be with my family once this life has come and gone. This is Christ's church restored on the earth today with prophets and apostles.

How I live my faith

The thing I love most about the mormon church is that it's engrained into my heart how important it is to serve people. Every day I look for opportunities to help other people. If I see someone on the side of the road with a broken down car, I'll stop and help. If someone is feeling down, I encourage them. No matter the concern, there are so many ways to help and it's what gives me the greatest happiness I've found in this life. Each week I serve through my current calling- ward financial clerk. I make sure that all the tithes that members pay are correctly accounted for. I make sure that these donations are given to the church for further disbursement. The church uses tithing money to build temples, churches as well as helping the poor through humanitarian aid. Every month I visit two families. This is called home teaching in the church. I make sure my families are taken care of. I share a message with them about Christ and let them know that they can call me for anything they need help with, i.e. job search, moving, food, anything! I just want to help them.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. Some parts of it are as old as the Bible. Show more Show less
