Hi I'm Shayla

I am a sophomore in college. I am athletic and musical. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love doing anything athletic. My favorite sports to play are soccer and softball, but I will pretty much try anything. I play the piano and participated in choir and voice lessons in high school. I am the middle of 8 children. I love to spend time with my family and friends. Some of my favorite things to do are watch movies, play card and board games, and have dance parties with my siblings. I attend Brigham Young University, but I am taking time off from school to serve a mission in California.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of this church, and I have never doubted it. Because of the church, my life is so blessed and I am happy. I recognize the heartache and trouble that exists in families and friendships, and I have seen that through this church true happiness can be achieved. I love this gospel and want to always have it in my life. This church has given me direction and guidance in my life. I know where I am going and I know that I can make it through tough times in my life if I turn to God and Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I love my savior Jesus Christ and want to be close to Him, and I want to strive to be like Him everyday.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith each day through my actions. I pray, read the scriptures, and participate in many church activities. I try to live like Jesus Christ and to show others that they are loved. I have also decided to serve a mission and spend the next eighteen months serving God and bringing Christ into others' lives. I want to share the gospel with others because it has brought me so much happiness and peace.
