Hi I'm Shalyce

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 4th generation Arizona native. I'm a wife and mother of 1. I enjoy hiking, reading, playing soccer, and spending time with my family. I also love to run outside when the temperature is below 90 degrees. I love business and education and I graduated from ASU with a degree in Business Administration. I run my own Real Estate business and help my husband run his graphic design business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the confirmation I received from God many times throughout my life when I have asked if this was the true church. I am a Mormon because of the way the church has influenced my life for the better. I am a Mormon because of the many blessings I have received as direct answers to my prayers. I am a Mormon because I know that God know me personally and wants what's best for me. I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins so that each and every one of us will have the opportunity to repent and return to live with Him someday.

How I live my faith

Life is busy, but I know when I take the time to ready my scriptures daily and say my prayers, I am able to be a better mother to my son, a better wife to my husband, and a better neighbor and friend. I live my faith by being a diligent visiting teacher. I have been able to get to know many of the women in our church by fulfilling this calling. I am also the food storage specialist, which has blessed me with the responsibility of helping the families in our ward plan ahead and store food for future times of need.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is our belief in abstaining from tobacco, alcohol, coffee/tea, and illegal drugs. It was given as a law of health to Joseph Smith in 1833, which was long before science had proven any of the substances were addictive or detrimental to our health. A common misconception of our church is that we are "controlled" or "restricted" based on the Word of Wisdom. Our church believes in free agency, the ability for us to make choices for ourselves. Being under the influence or addiction of said substances is not only bad for our health, but restrain us from having free agency. Show more Show less
