Hi I'm Shanalee

I'm a mother of three. I love crafting, camping, soccer, ballroom dance, skiing, musicals, chocolate, and being a Mormon.

About Me

As a mother of two boys and a girl I spend almost all of my time with them. I would not trade being a mommy for anything even though it's hard work and exposes my weaknesses more than anything else. I love using my hands and imagination to create new things. I am no artist, but I enjoy cutting, pasting, and coloring for fun and relaxation. I love hiking and camping. Some of my fondest childhood memories are backpacking with my family every summer. My husband and I take our family camping as often as we can. I met my husband playing soccer which is a sport we love. I love ballroom dancing and toured with my university dance group in Peru and Ecuador. Through dance we were able to raise money for orphanages and community centers. I feel lucky to have been a part of that.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've found the gospel of Jesus Christ to be true. I've found that obedience really is the key to everything. Jesus Christ gave us His gospel so that we and those around us can be happy and safe. I'm a Mormon because I've seen how the Lord has helped me, my family, and my ancestors. He really does know me. I am a Mormon because I make mistakes and need Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I need to know how to feel inner peace and happiness. I am a Mormon because I've prayed about it.

How I live my faith

I think I live my faith most when I am at home with my family. It is at home that I have the opportunity to answer questions like, "Can Heavenly Father really hear me?", "Where is Great Grandma now?", "Why did God create wolves?" or "Why are there bad guys?"
