Hi I'm Shelby

About Me

Hi, I'm Shelby. I like hanging out with my family. I love hunting, fishing and being outdoors. I am beginning to learn how to fight as a Mixed Martial Artist. I am the oldest of four in my family. I love fixing cars and driving them. . . fast. I like to work hard and play harder. I am also in the Army National Guard. I like a good adrenaline rush. I like being out and being active. I find great joy in helping others out the best I can.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was brought up in a loving family in the church, but my Dad was inactive for most of my life. My Mom however being like the great mothers of the Stripling Warriors took all us kids to church and kept us spiritually minded. Just like mostly everyone else my testimony came to me over time through a refiners fire. I never received an outstanding revelation or was visited by angels. My testimony however was built one piece at a time. I continue to try and live the gospel everyday because every day I receive a personal witness that the Book of Mormon is true, that God is our loving Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ is His Son, and we have Prophets today. I do the things I do because I love doing them and I love God. The Church means so much to me because it gives me true teachings about the Savior and His earthly ministry. It helps me better understand the Atonement and the things I need to do to be the best that I can be. It gives me hope, which in turn increases my faith, and helps me find deep inside charity which is "The Pure Love of Christ". I know this church is true! I know that Joesph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and that He died and lives again for us! I know God loves us! A sign of His love for us is that he has given us a Prophet today, President Monson, who leads and guides us. I know these things are true. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. I get up each day and give it my best. I am currently serving as a missionary teaching people about the gospel.
