Hi I'm Shae

I am a wife to an amazing husband. I am a college grad. I live a extraordinary life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have been married for two years now. We were married in the Manti, Utah Temple in 2010. He is most definitely the love of my life. He and I are working on starting a family, and just bought our first house. We are planning on having 7 children (or more!!). I love huge families (coming from only having one sibling, a sister who I just adore!) and can't wait to have as many children as the Lord sees fit to send us! I graduated from BYU in April of 2011 and love to learn. I also love to longboard, play basketball, play the guitar, go hunting, fishing, and do many other activities. My husband and I are both active and live a very active lifestyle. We both love to play sports, spend time outside, go camping, and spend time with our family. We have two dogs and a cat who we also like to spend time with. I love being with my husband and doing awesome things with him. He is the best thing in my life. We have fun doing whatever we do! I was born and raised a member of the LDS church. I served a full time mission in Colorado. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a member of the Church to a mother who is a member and a father who is not. As a child I knew that the church was true, but during my teenage years sort of fell away. I grew up in Illinois where I was the only member in my whole high school. With that being said, I used to attend church meetings with my friends. Baptists, methodists, catholics, you name it and I attended it. Then I got accepted to BYU. I came to Utah and went to school. Three years in I had a very good bishop that talked with me about serving a mission. I decided it was something I wanted to work towards. I read the Book of Mormon for the first time completely through. It was then that my testimony began to grow. I decided that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was true. I received my mission call to serve in the Colorado Denver North Mission and spent a year and a half of my life there. My conversion really happened right before I left, though everyday I am further converted to the gospel. My conversion didn't happen over night, but I know that Heavenly Father has blessed me with a knowledge of the gospel. He blessed my with this knowledge so that I could help other people find the truth. I know that I am supposed to use my life, and my abilities to help bless the lives of those around me. I know that this gospel is true. That Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God, and that there is a living Prophet on the Earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I've read it. I've pondered it. I've prayed about it. And Heavenly Father answered those prayers. I know that by living by it's precepts and the teachings of the Prophets and Apostles that we can live happy and fulfilling lives. I know that the purpose of the gospel is to bless our lives. I know that this is possible, because I live it everyday. Being a member of the Church and having the chance to be sealed for time and all eternity to my sweet husband has made me the happiest person ever!

How I live my faith

My husband and I try to continually live our faith every single day. We make time each day to "feast" upon the scriptures, to pray with one another, to hold Family Home Evening (a Monday night tradition among Mormon's....a kind of get together with a lesson, an activity, and a snack.) We attend our Sunday meetings and try our best to magnify our callings (wolf leaders in the Cub Scouts). I love our knowledge of our loving Heavenly Father and older brother Jesus Christ. I know that in living the gospel standards set forth by the Prophets and Apostles my husband and I can live clean and worthy lives. We are truly blessed to be members of the LDS Church. I try to serve other people as best as I can. My husband and I try to look for those in need and try to help them out the best we can. I try to set an example of our faith in the way that I live. I try to be open about what I know is true. I speak, quite frequently, with people of other faiths and try to help them see what being a Mormon is all about.
