Hi I'm Shanna

I was born and raised in Mesa, AZ. I am a mother of one (so far) and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a mother of one, hopefully more to come. I love being a mother and I find muchjoy in raising a family. I am always looking for new, fun and creative activities that I can do with my son. I also love living an active lifestyle. I find joy in hiking, running, camping, snowboarding and working out. I am always looking for a new hobby to take interest in and learn about.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. When I turned 18 I became less active in the church, and yearned for the desire to be more involved with the church... To have that burning desire within for me to do what I knew was right and attend a church that I knew was true. After 3 years I found my way back, and I will never forget when people would tell me how happy I looked, or how I was just lit up again! It was a wonderful feeling to have the desire to come back to church! I have chosen to be a member of this church because I know it is true, and I am greatful to have been raised in the gospel and given that firm foundation.

How I live my faith

I have a calling dealing with Visit Teaching. Other women members of the church are given assignments to visit and teach(thus visit teaching) other women in the ward. It is my calling to gather the reports on who has been visited in the month. Also to make sure the sisters know who they teach and to encourage them to build relationships with those they are assigned. I am also a substitute in the nursery. If the nursery leaders are unable to attend, I will fill in and teach and play with the kids for the day, or as long as I am needed.
