Hi I'm Shelbey!

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Newlywed. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I am thrilled by the independence living a clean, virtuous life gives me. And above all else, I want to live with my Heavenly Parents and Savior for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to invite the spirit of the Lord into my life in everything I do and by keeping His commandments.

What is being a Mormon like?

Shelbey!
Being a Mormon is joyful. I love knowing I am part of a huge work much bigger than me. It helps me to refocus my priorities on what is truly important in this life - serving and having a family. (Because really, why would God send us to Earth with literally billions of other people if we weren't here to create lasting relationships and to help one another along the way?) I am blessed with a sense of peace (even in the most difficult of times) that I think the world in general lacks, and it is 100% due to my religion and observance thereof. Show more Show less

What is the Relief Society?

Shelbey!
It's sort of a funny name, but it's exactly what it sounds like: a society dedicated to providing relief. It is the group LDS women over the age of 18 belong to. It's a sisterhood devoted to giving emotional, spiritual, temporal, and physical relief from the sufferings and trials of this world. I enjoy Relief Society because it's almost like a group of automatic friends! Each Sunday (and often during the week as well), we come together to worship the Savior and get to know each other so we can better serve one another. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Shelbey!
I used to think faith was me wishing with every part of my being that some outcome that I wanted would be realized. That is incorrect. Faith, which really should be called "faith in the Lord Jesus Christ," is confidence that the Savior lives, that He loves you, and that He will return again at an unknown date. In knowing this, we can have faith through trials, because we know that He is helping us with them and will, in the future, make everything right. We have faith that His will for us to be obedient is more important than our will to be popular, comfortable, beautiful, rich, or powerful. Show more Show less
