Hi I'm Shauna

I played the Wicked Witch of the West. I went skydiving. I love to sing in the Messiah and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother of eight children, and grandmother of twelve. Raising my children has been the greatest adventure of my life. My hobbies and interests include singing, playing the piano, theater, reading, and sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I LOVE being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised in the church, but at some point in time you have to discover that commitment for yourself. It was a process of moving from the trusting years of my childhood to the searching years of my youth and on into the believeing years of my adulthood. One of the reasons I love this gospel so much is because of the knowledge I have gained concerning my loving Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ, who gave his life for me.  My growing understanding of the relationship I have with them blesses my life each and every day. I am so grateful that they have placed everything on this earth that I need to be happy, successful, and to return to their presence. The teachings and example of Jesus Christ give me a vibrant guide to follow. When I am obedient to those commandments, I am always a better wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and friend.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by taking advantage of many wonderful opportunities to help others. It has been great to be involved in my children's classrooms, work in PTA, help keep score at ballgames, assist elderly friends, and be a blessing in the lives of my children and grandchildren. At church I get to work with the children and those who teach them. It is such a delight to be with the children because they are open, honest, and express their thoughts in the most creative ways. The other day I sat down next to a cute little three year-old-girl. We smiled at each other. She leaned over and said, "You're old, aren't you." I said, "Yes, I probably am." She nodded her head and smiling said, "I could tell by the lines on your face." Needless to say, you can't really argue with the wisdom of a three-year-old! Getting to associate with great people makes it easy to go to church. I always come back feeling invigorated and ready to tackle a new week.
