Hi I'm Shane

I'm a stroke survivor, I'm a little league softball coach, I'm a father and husband, I'm a CPA and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stroke survivor. In 2009 I cracked my neck, which I did by my self very easily, I had a bleeding stroke. Two brain surgeries later and answers to prayer from both non-Mormon and Mormon friends and family members my life was saved. Life is a struggle, a trial, an adaption to new challenges, but very rewarding. I have been blessed to be involved with various softball and football teams and I feel that the love of those team members and coaches has been a huge help to me. If any of you are reading my profile, I could never thank you enough for picking me up the last couple of years. I have also been lifted. helped, strengthened, by my family and office friends. My stroke was a blessing, I have to keep telling my self this, but it is a blessing to know how many friends I have. My favorite movie It's a Wonderful Life ends by saying,"No man is a failure, who has friends" My friends and family mean everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the teaching of Jesus Christ, the modern prophets and the scriptures tell me that with the teachings of Jesus we can return to our Heavenly homes as families.

How I live my faith

I try to be nice and live with integrity. At work there are some (non-negotiable s)I will not cross over the line for anyone or for any reason when it comes to being honest. You can take that to the bank. In the church I believe in being active. When you are worthy and active you will get a chance to do about everything in the church, teacher. leader, whatever. The church is a wonderful place to grow, usually growth requires stretching. The church will stretch you and make you better form day one.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

I like what Benjamin Franklin said," Death is not extinguishing the light, it is turning down the lamp, because the dawn has come." We believe in life and growth after death. The person that we are here on earth will continue when we die, only without our body, until the resurrection. We believe the resurrection will come to all men and women, even if they are living their life here on earth as if this is the end. Because of Jesus Christ all will be reunited body and spirit to live for eternity. Show more Show less
