Hi I'm Shay

I am a twin. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of five girls in my family. Music is my life! I love to play the piano, violin, and to sing. I love photography, taking pictures and editing them. I am currently in highschool and loving it. A goal of mine is to get my pilots license before age 25. I love to read and write poems. And that about sums me up!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because being mormon has truely made me happy. This gospel puts a smile on my face from sun up to sun down. I know i am not perfect, but I can truely feel the light of Christ growing inside of me each and every day. I love going to church, and seeing people's testimonies being shared. I do not know where I would be without this church. But what i do know is that with it, my life has been forever changed. I know this church is true, and not just because I was raised to belive so, I know it's true because i have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me. I have had expiriences where I know, without a doubt, that this is the true church. And becuase of those expiriences, I believe. And because i believe, I have a special faith inside of me. Faith to continue being a mormon. And having that faith inside of me, has made me eternally happy. I look forward to the future, knowing all the power God has given me, I know I can change lives. I know that, through God, I have the power to do all. And knowing that, makes me greatful. I am forever in debt to God, because He loved me, and you, enough to give us the oppurtunity to be a part of this church. This church of service, this church of grattitude, this church of love. There is no other place that i feel i belong, more than this gospel. It just feels right. And i know it to be a true church, without a single doubt.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of a believer. I am a highschool student, so it at many times can be hard to stand up to my peers about my beliefs. But when I just trust the Lord, he helps me. He gives me strength to be an example to others. Even when they make fun of me, or tease me about my religion. I know that with the Lord on my side, I'll win. I may not know what to say to people when they tease me about my religion, but i do know that if i trust God, he will give me words. I love living my faith by just doing what's right. It's that simple. I love to serve others, it makes everybody involved happy. I love visiting retirement centers with my friends. My twin sister and I recently visited a retirement center. It was such a good expirience. They were so happy to see people take time to play uno with them. I also love participating in clubs at my school. Such as "Best Buddies". It is a club where you are paired up with a buddy, who has special needs. Just being around souls so perfect as the specail needs are, truely change my life. I love serving and living my faith so others can see. It can change lives.

Are Mormons Christians?

Shay
Yes, Mormons are Christians. A CHRISTian is someone who believes and follow Christ. We, as Mormons, try to become like Christ each and every day. That is the goal, to become like Him. Not only are we Christians, but we believe in BEING a Christian. We try to act as though Christ would if He was put in our situtaions. We believe that being a Christian is BEING like Christ. It is having the light of God within us, and sharing that light with the world. Show more Show less
