Hi I'm Shannon

I'm a wife, mom, grandma and friend. I enjoy spending time with family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother. My husband and I have been blessed with 5 beautiful daughters, and 5 (almost 6) sweet grandchildren. I love being a mom and grandma, my husband, children and grandchildren bring me so much joy and happiness. I enjoy family time, good books, baking, and vacations.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormom because I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm blessed for having the Gospel in my life. It brings me peace, happiness, joy and many blessings. I'm thankful for Our Savior, Jesus Christ and His example and love for everyone. I have always known that I have a Father in heaven, and that He loves me and wants me to be happy. I'm grateful that He sent His Son to show us the way. I'm the most happy when I'm following Christ and His example.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being obedient. Prayer and scriptures are very important to me and my family. I like going to church and learning. I want to be kind to everyone. When interacting with people during the day, I remind myself that we are all children of God, and I am able to feel more love and concern for others. At this time I am serving in Young Women's with the Laurels, and I enjoy seeing the strength and talents of these beautiful girls. They are true disciple's of Christ. They love and accept everyone. In my community, I belong to a non-profit womens organization that gives college scholarships and grants to people in need. I feel that when we serve others with a good attitude and a kind heart we are the ones who are blessed.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons help everyone. The Church donates money each year to various countries in need and many of these countries have few to no Mormons, and some are non-Christian. There are Mormon missionaries all over the world that are serving and helping people. My husband is very good at helping our friends and neighbors who aren't Mormon with yard work, tree trimming or just moving furniture. Our church is all about serving others and doing good to all men. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

God has called prophets to lead His Church in our day, just as He did anciently. The current prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He is assisted by two counselors—Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uctdorf. Together, they make up the First Presidency of the Church (much like Peter, James, and John after Christ’s death).
