Hi I'm Shane

I'm from Idaho. I grew up on a potato farm with 4 older brothers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

We currently moved to Nevada for graduate school. I am going to school to become a Physical Therapist. I am married and have one child and one on the way. My wife is due in December.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church in a typical Mormon community in Idaho. Most of my friends were LDS. I always knew I wanted to serve a mission for my savior when I turned 19 even though in High School I might have forgotten that until my senior year. I ended up serving a mission in Taiwan, which was an amazing experience and met a lot of wonderful people. To be honest if it wasn't for my testimony I probably wouldn't be religious or active in any faith. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes you a better person and I wouldn't be who I am without it. Knowing who I am and where I am going after this life brings such a peace into my life, and knowing that I can live with my family for eternity is the greatest blessing of all. Jesus is the Christ and this is His church.

How I live my faith

My wife and I just started teaching the gospel essentials class in our ward. So those who are investigating the church or who just joined the church, who might not know a lot about the gospel, can come and learn the basics of what we believe.
