Hi I'm Shane

I grew up in Utah. I love acting on stage, singing, playing football, being and artist, and just being cool too, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a huge geek. I love theatre, especially shakespeare, I love to sing and dance, I used to play football and baseball, I love talking to people, and I love watching movies. I actually aspire to be a screen director someday. I think that would be one of the coolest experiences and jobs ever. For now I'm interested in digital media. I would like to do the animation for video games.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of this church because of the feeling i get when i think of the teachings of our prophets. There are so many different churches in the world, but none of them match what the other one says. I find comfort in knowing that no matter where in the world I go, I can find the same consistent teachings in my church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church, and setting an example to other people that shows my beliefs. I love inviting others to experience the happiness that i get from christs restored gospel.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

We perform proxy baptisms in our temples because some people go through this life and never have a chance to accept christs true gospel. Baptism is the first step someone needs to take in order to make it back to live with our heavenly father and be like him. If we didn't do the baptisms and give them that chance to make that covenant to follow christ, it would be like giving someone a test without teaching them the material. Show more Show less
