Hi I'm Shaun

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to spend time with my family and friends and serve others. I enjoy singing in my church choir and have sung in my school choir before. Playing piano is one of my passions and I love playing every opportunity I have, especially for others. I love being outdoors- camping, hiking, swimming, biking, etc. I also love to play tennis and racquetball. I am a Freshman at Arizona State University studying Mechanical Engineering Systems.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the gospel is true. I have prayed and received an answer about this Church, that it is true and it is lead by our Savior Jesus Christ through the Prophet and President of the Church, Thomas S Monson. I know that President Monson communicates with God. I know he receives revelation from God on how to guide the Church. I know that President Monson has the authority from Jesus Christ to guide His only true Church, this authority being the Priesthood. I know this and because I know this, I know being a righteous member of this Church is the way back to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that through the Atonement of Christ we can all be saved, and I know that when I make covenants, or promises with God by the power of the Priesthood, I can live with God again. I know God is the father of our spirits, He is our Heavenly Father and loves us. I know that we have true scriptures on the earth today, including the Holy Bible and Book of Mormon. I know with both I can better understand what Heavenly Father wants me to do. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who restored the full Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Earth under the direction of the Lord. I know that we can be sealed with our families and live with them for eternity if we keep the commandments and are faithful to our covenants, or promises we make with God in the temple. I feel such joy in knowing that I can be with my family for eternity and live with our Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to others. I share with others my joy in living the Gospel in word and action. One of the ways I do this is by sharing my testimony, or sharing what I know to be true and what I know is right. I love sharing about how living the principles of the Gospel have brought me closer to Jesus Christ and have brought me peace and joy. I try to love the people around me and serve them because I care about them.
