Hi I'm Shawn Murray

I'm a father of four beautiful children and I've been happily married for 16 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really love the outdoors. I love to hike, camp, fish, and mountain bike. I love to share these experiences with my family and it is so refreshing to see the smiles on my children's faces as we experience the beauty of the earth together. Spending time with my family brings me such great joy and peace.

Why I am a Mormon

God truly loves all of us as his children and he does not want us to be confused. He has promised that if we ask Him in prayer with a sincere heart, then we too, can know His truths. I personally have asked God in prayer whether or not the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of Jesus Christ. I will never forget that day and the answer received. The answer was a strong feeling that was very peaceful and sweet. The feeling was an unquestionable yes and since that day, I have dedicated myself to serving the Lord.

How I live my faith

There are so many ways to help and serve other people around us each day. I look for opportunities to serve others and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ on a daily basis. Often times that service is as simple as holding a door for someone or making someone smile. Some times that service is harder and requires true love for my fellow beings. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to assist families after a devastating tornadoe tour through my community. It was sad to see so many people lose their homes or personal belongings but everyone was so grateful for the help. I wish I could have made it all go away, but all I could do was serve and love others. Thinking and acting outside of myself to serve others is where I have found true happiness.
