Hi I'm Shannon

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a lawyer and have practiced business law in Seattle since 1975. I graduated with a BA in 1972 and a JD in 1975. I am married and have 4 adult children. I have always worked and enjoy helping others solve their problems. I also love music and play the organ for church. I taught seminary for 7 years and loved the experience. I love to read (especially history and biography) and go to the opera. I also love to travel. I especially love to travel and look at old rocks that were made into buildings by the hands of human beings. I love to combine history, opera and travel. I am still best friends with 6 friends from high school even though I live in another state.

Why I am a Mormon

Luckily I was born to goodly parents who were members of the church and I was baptised when I was 8 years old. I also have lots of Mormon friends that have kept me involved with the church. I am so grateful for my ancestors that left England and Denmark back in the 1850s and 1860s and gave up everything to move to Salt Lake City so that I would have the knowledge of the church from an early age. I think it would be very difficult to open my door to a new religion at this point. I have no doubt whatsoever that when I die I will see my family again and that I will be able to see Jesus Christ and know that he truly does live. When I pray to my Heavenly Father, I know he is there and is listening. I also know he will answer my prayers. I love belonging to a congregation that has similar beliefs and share a common purpose for why we are here on this earth. I love the opportunities for service that comes with being a member of the church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to put the Lord first every day. I have accepted every calling that has been asked of me. I play the organ for church and teach the high school Sunday School class. I like to be helpful.
