Hi I'm Shane

I'm a husband and father. I love outdoor adventure. I'm a facilities and construction manager. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a devoted husband and father. I enjoy most, spending time with my wife and children. I am lucky to be married to such a wonderful person as my wife. I am a facilities manager. I am a construction manager. I have undergraduate and graduate degress in construction managment. I completed most of my education while having a family and working full time. I enjoy golfing, hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking. I enjoy the outdoors because of its beauty, natural feeling, and the many ways in which it excites and refreshes my spirit. The world is a beautiful place. I like to enjoy the outdoors while also enjoying outdoor activity, such as hiking. Doing so brings me joy through the enjoyment of the natural beauty as well as through the excercising of my body. I love enjoying these things with my wife and children. I have fun watching my children play sports. I enjoy seeing them develop athletic talents.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found its beliefs to be true. The scriptures explain that we can come to know if something is true through the power of the Holy Ghost. The scriptures further explain that through having a real intent to know if something is true, by honestly pondering it, and and by asking God in prayer if it is true, having faith that He will tell you, that He will answer you by the power of the Holy Ghost. It is through applying these principles that I have found that Christs teachings in their fullness are found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Through this process, I have discovered that God, our Heavenly Father, is indeed a real person, who loves me, and hears and answers my prayers. God understands me as a person. He knows me. He knows my thoughts, my feelings, my worries, my struggles. Through my faith in our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ, I have found powerful direction in life. I have found that the purpose of living is to grow and become like the Savior, Jesus Christ, by heading to the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through doing so, we can receive certain blessings that God has prepared for those who believe and follow Him. I have found that living the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me tremendous blessings in my life; blessings that I see I would not have if not for faith in Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively being a part of the Church and its teachings. I try to associate myself with good people. I find that family life occupies most of my time. I live my faith by serving the members of my family. By loving them. By thinking about them. By doing things for them and with them.
