Hi I'm Shannan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a music teacher! I love to teach and inspire children to find their own voice through music. I am married to a wonderful husband and I am the mother of a sweet miracle. I love to read. I have shelves and shelves of books that I have read multiple times. I love the Harry Potter series and anything by Anne Mccaffrey. Music is my passion. I have on multiple occasions been caught humming and not even realized I was doing it! I love to sing. I am a classically trained mezzo-soprano and I had a blast in college learning art songs and arias.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. When I read the story of the first vision and realized that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ called Joseph by name, it helped me understand that they know me personally as well. They know my heart, my fears, my dreams, my pains, my joys. They know me. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me peace during times of trial: a painful divorce, the death of my beloved father. It has brought me joy as I have learned that there is a plan of happiness specifically for me. I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today.

How I live my faith

My husband and I are sunday school teachers for the 16 and 17 year old youth. I am also the ward choir director and back up organist when the regular accompaniest is out of town. I participate in a community choir every year at Christmas time that sing's Handel's Messiah.
