Hi I'm Shannon

I am a speech-language pathologist, a voracious reader, a mother of four, (I wish I had an interesting accent) and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

My life can best be described as organized chaos, but that’s the way I like it. I have been married almost longer than I have been single. My family keeps me busy in a whirlwind of activity. I love to read, especially fluff. I consider myself more a collector of all things scrapbook rather than someone who actually gets around to making scrapbooks. My feeling is that I scrap green: I take lots of pictures that I never print and plan layouts that I never complete. :-) As a speech-language pathologist, I enjoy providing the tools of communication to the children I work with to enhance their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ has always been a part of my life. It is the template I strive to base my life upon. I know that our Heavenly Father knows and loves each one of us and actually takes a personal interest in all that we do. My parents were wonderful in teaching us how to listen to the whisperings of the Holy Ghost to receive guidance in our lives. I really can’t imagine not having the gospel. The world’s influences can be so very overwhelming. The guidance we can receive in the choices we have to make is comforting, especially when it comes to decisions about raising our children.

How I live my faith

I strive every day to do the best I can, and do a little better each day. Using daily prayer and scripture study, I can know what I am to do. The everyday workings of the church include many great programs for the youth, so as a family we encourage our children to be involved in their programs so that they too can learn and grow in righteous ways.
