Hi I'm Shawna

I grew up all over the United States. Now I am a wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My dad was in the Navy so I grew up all over the U.S. Now I am a wife and the mother of 4. I crochet and write patterns for my blog in my spare time.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to whatever church I could walk to or get a ride to. When I was 14, the missionaries came to our door and offered to show us a video. My dad let them in. A lot of people at the time tried to tell me that Mormons were evil and did all sorts of weird stuff. Luckily my mom's best friend was LDS and I knew that Mormons were just regular people like me. I decided to listen to what the missionaries had to say and, after a lot of prayer, was baptized a short time later. This year marks my 20th as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I work in the nursery with 18 month to 3 year olds on Sundays. During the week, I am an assistant den leader for the Bears in Cub Scouts.
