Hi I'm Shannon

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of 5 kids; 3 girls and 2 boys. I have a wonderful husband. I like to sew, cook, hike, camp, serve my family and others, read the scriptures, sing, play my flute, rearrange furniture, jump rope, work out with my husband, fix what I can around the house, watch my husband, dad, and others fix stuff, and I like to listen to whoever needs me to. I went to two years of college. I met my husband and married him in those two years. I was going to transfer to ASU and get my teaching degree, but got pregnant with my first baby. I have been teaching my 5 kids ever since. I have been to 3 other countries, Mexico, France, and Germany. I traveled those countries when I was just 14 years old when I was invited to my Aunt's home to watch my cousins for a summer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My parents and on back for generations have been members. I was taught how to love one another by my parents and teachers at church. I loved to sing the primary songs when I was young. I knew from a very young age that I am a child of God and I have a divine purpose here on earth. I have felt the love that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ has for me. I have prayed to know if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true and have gotten a very special feeling of warmth from the Holy Ghost that it is true. I love that when I pray I get an answer. I know that Joseph Smith restored this church to its ancient form when Jesus Christ was on the earth. I know that if I am righteous and teach my family to be righteous then I will be able to be with them for eternity. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in the church. I have taught children to sing. I have taught children lessons about Jesus Christ. I have played my flute in church meetings and have sang also. I help with the compassionate needs of the women in our area. I lead music for the womens organization. I have had the opportunity of taking care of the 18 month to 3 year old kids and teaching them about Jesus Christ. I enjoy serving others in my neighborhood. My neighbor always says don't or you will be asked over and over to help them, but I say bring it on. The more I serve others the more I am serving my Savior Jesus Christ.
