Hi I'm Shelby

I grew up in Indiana, and I am serving in the Tucson Arizona mission!

About Me

I am currently 19, the oldest of 6 kids and did a year of college studying Music Education.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me, and my future husband for all of eternity and not just "till death do you part". Though I've grown up in the Mormon faith, I have chosen to follow it myself, not just because my parents do. I know that Heavenly Father has sent a prophet to this earth to help lead us and share the current counsel given by the Lord. I know that Christ has felt all of my pains and sorrows and he not only wants to help me grow from it, he will mourn with me and let me cry, and I know he listens when I talk. I love the temple, it is one of the most important parts of the Mormon faith and without it, eternity is impossible. I will have eternity because of the covenants I have made throughout my life. I love my Heavenly Father and have faith in all of his plan for me, even when it's not necessary what I had in mind.

How I live my faith

Before I left for my mission I was a sunbeam teacher (teacher for 3 year olds) in primary. I help out a lot with the youth, especially young women. I help out quite often with my old high school show choir program and my brothers baseball team.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Know that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and everyone of us as individuals, if he wants something in your life, he'll put it there or help you to find it yourself. If he knows something needs out of your life, he'll remove it and help you get through the pain. Show more Show less
