Hi I'm Elliott Shaffer

im a player of music, im a nerd, im enlisted till the conflict is over.... and im a mormon!

About Me

I grew up in the wonderful land of ohio all through out the Akron and Cleavland area. when i was young i loved to do anything that involved useing my hands. from helping my father in the garage working on his hot rods to doing yard work and fixing up the homestead. now that i am older i still love to use my hands. now i mostly use them for playing music, rugby and giving enthusiastic high fives when ever they read the book of mormon or live the word of wisdom and the law of chastity. yep thats right i am a man in the white shirt and tie. basically i love to go about doing good. with my hands that the lord has blessed me with.

Why I am a Mormon

the reason i am mormon is. the book of mormon. i have read it and asked god if the book is true. and the holy ghost has testified to me of its truth and divinity! since i knew the book to be true i knew that there is a prophet on earth which meant i needed to follow him because he was led by god so therefore i am a mormon!

How I live my faith

how i live my faith is by shareing what i know to be true with others i am a full time missionary in new jersey i have been one for 18 months and i love it!

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Elliott Shaffer
dont fall into temptation. i think some thing that would help is limiting the time that we are on the internet. and have a set reason for being on line. if you have no purpose to be on line dont just browse around. thats when we run into that kind of stuff. other than that run like joseph!
