Hi I'm Shayla Osborn

I will soon be a missionary in the Washington Tacoma mission, I am a fun loving college student, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a college student at BYU Idaho. I love to watch movies and hang out with my roommates. I also love to cook and bake, when I have time. I am currently planning on majoring in dental hygiene and eventually want to be a dental hygienist. I also am going to be serving a mission in the Tacoma, Washington mission very soon and am very excited to share the gospel! I play the flute, piano and also love to sing in choir. I also am a life guard during the summer, which I really enjoy doing! When I feel like the world is coming down on me I trust in the Lord and remember that he loves me and everything always works out.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. I am a mormon because I love the feeling I get when I go to church and learn of Heavenly Fathers plan for me. I follow his commandments because I know that he loves me and wants the best for me. It is sometimes hard to do everything he has asks but I know that when I make mistakes I can repent and come unto him once more. I am also a mormon because of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and his teachings. It adds so much more to the truths that we find in the bible. I have found that the Book of Mormon helps me understand the teachings in the Bible better! It is easy to understand and helps me gain a better relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I have prayed and asked of the truthfulness of this book and have felt that it is true. I know that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and I want everyone to know that. I also love this gospel because it allows me to continually strengthen my relationship with Jesus Christ. This gospel has blessed my life in so many ways and I'm grateful for it and proudly stand and say that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each week and by doing what I know is right. I really enjoy attending church and living the standards of the church because I have seen the many ways in which it has blessed my life. I have found that when I do the things that Heavenly Father wants me to do I am happy and my life runs pretty smooth. I also live my faith by trying to be an example of Christ to the people around me. I know that the Savior loves each of us and when we follow his example we can be happy and help others around us to also be happy.
