Hi I'm Shannon

I grew up loving my Savior Jesus Christ, family, music, dance and dressing up. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in a home that love for our Savior and one another was our foundation. I am the youngest of 6 children, with my mother and father who were always showing their love for each other. I love music and it was something that my family and I could do together. I love to play the piano and my bass, and most of all I love to sing. I also love to read. I read many types of books but I always love a good adventure with a pinch of romance. My other favorite thing is to watch Asian dramas. And then every weekend I would hope that there was a dance to go to. I also love to design costumes and am going to college as a costume designer. That makes Halloween one of my favorite holidays. I am a returned missionary from the Nebraska Omaha Mission and I loved it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a home where every morning my mother would read from the scriptures while we got ready for school and when we didn't have school we would all take turns reading. As a family we prayed daily morning and night, and each week we would go to church. I was also taught to read my scriptures and to pray on my own every day. As I grew older I came to see how much of a blessing the foundation of the gospel was to my family. I gained a love for my Savior which helped me build my own testimony and has given me strength for when I left home and was on my own. When I came to a point in my life where I asked the questions of my heart, I knew were I could turn for the answers. So I turned to my Heavenly Father and asked in His son's name, Jesus Christ, if all that I knew was true and He answered me. Through that answerer I know that this is the church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the basic things that Heavenly Father has asked us to do such as; read, pray, go to church, and love one another by serving them. I found the best way to do this is to serve a mission, where I can bring others closer to Christ through the restored gospel. Missionary work is the most rewarding service and I am grateful I have this opportunity to share His love.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Shannon
Our Heavenly Father loves all of His children and he is a just God. We do baptisms for the dead so that those who never heard about Christ or had the chance to be baptized can have that saving ordinance after this life. Show more Show less
