Hi I'm Shayna

Back home in New Zealand, loving the beach, roadtrips with friends, I'm excited for my next adventure ...& I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm kinda weird. Or so I'm told... I'm currently serving in the Utah St George Mission. LOVING EVERY SECOND OF IT! America, who would've thunk it! I'm a people person except the times when I'm not. I love the beach! I love to play basketball! Hiking, camping and all that fun stuff is great! Junk food and an awesome movie on the odd weekend is always a good thing. I'm up for pretty much ANYTHING if I'm in good company. It can get me into trouble sometimes =). Love to dance and sing and play the piano.. Hmm, I don't have anything else to say.. (doesn't happen very often.)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but don't believe I was truely converted until I was 18. This was about the time my friends began to experiment things like alcohol, cigarettes etc. I always knew it was wrong and didnt see much happiness in any of it. Something was definitely missing! I took everyday as it came, first work, then school, then sleep and this occupied most of my time but I don't ever remember experiencing actual joy. One night I had had enough and decided to ask for help from someone I knew wouldn't abandon me, my Heavenly Father. I put ALL my trust in him and prayed that he would help me out of the hole I had put myself in... and he did. And I know he will continue to if I choose to follow him. I have NEVER been more happier than I am now. And I have NO DOUBT that He hears and answers prayers. This church is true, the gospel has been restored. Don't take my word for it, ask for yourself. You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain.

How I live my faith

I served most of my adult life in the youth program of the church. AND LOVED IT! It's crazy to see how corrupt the world is today. In saying that it's also sooo refreshing to see the youth in the church, the standards they live and the testimonies of their Savior Jesus Christ they strengthen. Through my own experiences in life I've come to know the importance of learning more about my Heavenly Father and His plan for me and my family. They mean the world to me. I haven't lived the perfect life, far from it. But I'm so grateful that through my past experiences I've been able to grow and be the person I am today and improve to be the person my Heavenly Father knows I can become. This gospel is sooo true and that's the end of that.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Shayna
We will not just talk, but teach and discuss our Savior Jesus Christ. He is the center of our religion. We will teach you about how learning of him and following his example will change you and your families lives forever. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Shayna
Words can't describe the joy that comes from being not just "Mormon" but a true disciple (follower) of Jesus Christ. Speak to missionaries and they can teach you more about it! Show more Show less
