Hi I'm Shantel

I love cooking, playing sports, I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Idaho. I am currently serving a mission in Ohio. Before my mission I was going to BYU-Idaho to be a Family Consumer Science Teacher. I love watching movies with my sisters and then quoting them later. I grew up on a ranch and worked on it most of my life. I love being outdoors and in nature, but most importantly, I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ and I love being on a mission serving them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the LDS church. I have always loved the church and found so much joy from being a part of it. A common thing I heard growing up in the church was "I know the Book of Mormon is true because I prayed about it." Well, I had never prayed about the Book of Mormon and when was a teenager I decided that I wanted to know for myself that it was true. I read it and I prayed about it, and I just felt such a good feeling. The best way to describe it was that I couldn't stop smiling. I have come to a better understanding of my purpose in this life and what I am to become. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Currentlly I am serving as a full-time missionary in Northren Ohio.
