About Me

Hey, Im Shannon. Im a junior in high school. I moved to Utah last year . I'm the oldest of nine kids. I love sports and going to the dunes. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints becuase i choose to be. I have grown up in the chruch my whole life and i know it to be true. I gained a testimony through my parents and now that im older I have gained my own through prayer, studying the scriptures, going to church, and other church related activities. I know this church is true. I know that Joseph Smith brought the gospel of Christ back to earth. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I am so grateful for Thomas S. Monson (the Prophet.) I know he speaks of turth. And i am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? I try to follow the standards of the church. Whether its modesty or family, I want to do what is asked of me. Sometimes it seems like te church asks a lot of us but it's not that much at all. And everything we are asked not to do, is to protect us. One example could be smoking. We are asked not to do it not to deprive us of something everyone sees as ok but because it's bad for our health and can cause serious problems. We are asked as youth not to date untill 16, not because our leaders don't want us to have any fun, but because there is a hire risk of bad things happening that can lead to immoral behavior. I want to please My Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I'm grateful to belong to this church because I know it's true. There is no doubt in my mind.
