Hi I'm Shannon Durr

I am from Utah. I am a full-time missionary. I love to laugh! I love life and I'm proud to be a Mormon!

About Me

As I have grown up I have sought out the truth about my religion. I have come to know for myself that this is the ONLY true church on this earth. I am blessed to be a part of a large family. Five brothers and two sisters, with two loving parents. I am the first girl from my family to be serving a mission. Leaving the comfort of my home, my family and friends for 18 months has been the BEST decision I have made thus far in my life. I love being around people and learning about their lives and who they are. Being outside is the greatest, the beauty of nature is invigorating! I love the scriptures. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I receive peace and comfort when I read the pages. I love riding my bike, yes in the hot sun of Florida is the greatest. Music uplifts me. I love cooking and baking. I love comparing everything to the gospel and making connections. Miracles are easy to see when we look for them!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of Christ's church, a Mormon, a Latter-day Saint has brought nothing but happiness into my life. I was raised by goodly parents who taught me right and wrong but let me make my own decisions. I have found out for myself that His church has all the true doctrines. I am Mormon because I choose to be. I want to follow my Savior.

How I live my faith

Living as a Latter-day Saint is more than going to church and doing what is right. I live my faith by showing faith. I strive to read the scriptures, I have daily communication with my Creator. Most importantly, I am true to myself and what I know is right. I live my faith by being an example to those around me.
