Hi I'm Shannon

I grew up in Salt Lake City, I'm a wife, mother, grandma and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy photography, sports, reading and most of all spending time with my family. My family means everything to me. I love my husband, we have been married 32 years. He is the love of my life. My three daughters are all married and I enjoy having an adult relationship with each of them and watching them start families of their own.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith and membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is such an important part of who I am. I have always been a believer and an active member in the church. Following the gospel of Jesus Christ and trying to pattern my life after the Savior has brought great peace and happiness to me. To know that if I keep the commandments and try my best everyday to do what's right I will be blessed. I love knowing that families can be together forever. That is a driving force for me to stay on the path and try to inspire my husband and children to always do their best.

How I live my faith

One thing I love about the church is I know we have living prophets on the earth today to help guide us and give us direction. I love how the church is organized into ward families. It is like having a community of brothers and sisters helping each other through love and support. I have the opportunity now to work with 8 and 9 year old girls reach goals, try to strengthen families, increase the girls testimonies and also teach each other about service. It's wonderful to have a format laid out to help us all become the best we can be. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ is such a blessing in my life.
