Hi I'm Shannon

I'm a Mom. I'm a Zumba Instructor. I love to laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay-at-home mom with three beautiful daughters and an inspiring husband. I love laughing and find it so satisfying when my husband and kids crack up at my silly jokes. I love the feeling of my heart beating; be it from excercise, nerves, or excitement; when my heart is pumping I feel alive. I'm a beginner triathlete; running, biking and swimming in races with my sisters. I'm a Zumba Instructor and I never want to stop dancing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me happiness. I have seen lives which have been stunted or that are filled with heartache, all because of poor choices that were made. As a Mormon I learn about the path our Savior took and that how I can follow the same path and live a happy righteous life. I'm not saying that I've never had sorrow or that bad things haven't happened in my life, because that wouldn't be true. But knowing and following the gospel of Christ helps me to rise above the sorrows and allows me to see the beauty in my life. I am always amazed at the never ending variety of opportunities available to me. I truly feel that I could do or be anything I want. It's through following the commandments of God that I have gained that knowledge and freedom.

How I live my faith

I help teach the children in my congregation and am so blessed because of it. Lessons focus on the Savior and his love for them. It is an amazing thing to feel the Savior's love not only for me, but for the kids in class. They are 11 and 12 years old. They are strong. They are amazing. They are learning to be valiant and to not get caught in Satan's traps. I love the opportunities I have had to attend the Young Women's Girl's Camp the past two years. Girl's ages 12-17 spend almost a week learning not only wilderness survival skills but also how to grow closer to their Father in Heaven and Savior. They spend their days helping and getting to know eachother, lifting eachother's spirits and strengthening their testimonies.
