Hi I'm Shawn

I grew up in Utah and now live in Arkansas. I have traveled extensively around the world and I am a mormon

About Me

I am married to my sweetheart of 25 years. We have 6 children (4 boys and 2 girls). I love spending time with them. I enjoy outdoor activities, reading and family activities. I spent my working career in retail management and I enjoy volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior Jesus Christ and want to live my life as He has taught us to do. I am grateful to take upon me His name, to witness to others for and of Him. I know He lives, that He loves us, and has restored His church and gospel to the earth. By joining His church, I covenant to follow Him always, to do as He would do and help others come unto Him.

How I live my faith

I strive to begin and end each day on my knees in prayer to my Heavenly Father, praying to Him in the name of Jesus Christ. By doing this I am filled with their love and have a greater desire to follow them. We do the same in our family by beginning and ending our day in family prayer and expressing love to each family member. This helps us remember Christ throughout the day. We also strive to study the scriptures daily individually and as a family. This brings the Holy Spirit into our hearts and into our homes helping us to choose the right. I work with the youth and youth leaders in our church. What wonderful youth and youth leaders we have. They love the Lord and love to serve Him. Being with them strengthens my faith in Christ and encourages me to be and do better.
