Hi I'm Shawn

I love the summer time!

About Me

My name is Shawn. I work on Trident Nuclear Submarines. I'm ex-Army, and I'm a father of four.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a kid my Mom would drag me to church every Sunday morning and I just couldn't stand going, so when the time came for me to make a decision I just fell off the bandwagon. For several years of my life I was coming and going, not realy deciding if I wanted to be commited to the gospel of Christ. All the way I was provided constant encouragement from my family. I knew that my parents loved me no matter what, and after a while I came to the realization that going to church was probably the one thing that gave me the good life that my parents provided. I supppose that in the back of my mind I've always known that if I wanted to have the most sucessful family life, to be the best father and husband that I could be, I had to establish the same kind of strong foundations that my parents have. I simply cannot aviod the fact that the kind of core values which are taught by the church are unlike anything the rest of the world has to offer.

How I live my faith

Most of the time I go to work and take care of the family. Then there are days when the men from the church get together and help the less forutnate people around us with their needs. It's amazing how constant it is that there are people who need help but never ask for it. We proactively seek out these individuals, chopp wood, mow lawns clean up parks, rtc. Once you get charitable acts in your system it becomes a hunger and you feel empty without it.
