Hi I'm Shannon

My family and the gospel of Jesus Christ make my heart so so so happy!

About Me

My family and I are from Guatemala and I truly enjoyed a great childhood there. We now live in Arizona and have for some time. We love it! I've been blessed to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life and have learned that, as I get older, these two aspects of my life bring me more joy and satisfaction than anything else. My favorite things to do normally involve music, art, literature, friends, and adventure. I live in Hawaii and go to school at BYU and am going to serve in the Salt Lake City mission starting this summer!

Why I am a Mormon

I've stayed a Mormon all my life because I've witnessed the blessings from this religion in my life and am constantly brought to know of the truth of God's eternal plan for me. Truly, my savior Jesus Christ still lives and has Atoned for my sins. I know the Book of Mormon is true and it is a comfort to me to know that I can always open them and draw strength from them. I know that Christ and Heavenly Father live and, along with the Holy Ghost, are always "rooting" for me and guiding me back to live with them again. Whenever I pray sincerely, I can feel their eternal and overwhelming love for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating and following God's commandments. I try to always attend church, and enjoy other church activities like Family Home Evening, seminary/institute, etc. On a daily basis, I live what I believe by living high standards and trying to be an example at school, home, and wherever I may be. In the past, I've had the great privilege of participating in the Mesa, Arizona Easter Pageant, a beautiful re-telling of Christ's life and divine role on Earth. This has been a marvelous opportunity, since the past six years of doing it, that helps my testimony grow as well as help others come unto Christ. I am going to dedicate 18 months to serve the Lord and bring His message and happiness of His gospel to others. Constantly trying to do our best will allow for goodness and happiness in our lives.
