Hi I'm Shawn Wendt

I grew up in upstate New York, I am an Engineer, and I am Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Great Falls, Montana to a military family. My parents joined the church when I was 2 yrs of age. I grew up in Rochester, New York and went on a church mission to Germany from 1992-1994. I married my wife Heidi in 1996 and I am a parent of a beautiful 13 yr old daughter Samantha. I have a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Civil Engineering and work for the Washington State Department of Transportation. I love play basketball, cycle, and workout. I love music.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother joined the church in 1974 when I was two years of age. As I have grown older, I learned more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and my testimony of the Gospel has grown stronger and stronger . I am Mormon because I want to be and because of the accumulative spiritual experiences that I have had while trying my best o adhere to the Commandments of God.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by following the example of the Lord Jesus Christ. I love to visit others and share my faith with others through Home Teaching and by talking to my co-workers and friends. I am also a youth leader. I read my scriptures and pray daily.
