Hi I'm Shannon

I'm a student. I'm an aspiring author. I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite things to do is to write and read fiction. Before my mission I was working on 4 different ones and I hope to be a published author one day.  Go me! I’m studying to be an elementary teacher because I love children and to be a positive influence for the growing generation. My family moved around a lot when I was young and I love getting to know new people and experience new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose, and continue to choose, to be a member of this church because it makes me SO happy! I love it! I was raised in the church but I prayed and studied and asked Heavenly Father to help know that the Book of Mormon is true. And He did!

How I live my faith

Right now I’m serving as a volunteer missionary in Cleveland, Ohio. That means I get to go find and share what I know with others. I give community service and help others to come closer to their Savior Jesus Christ. It’s the best!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No one is required to serve a mission. And even though it's highly encouraged, it's all voluntary. It's a great privilege that we have to go and share the truths and joy that we have found to all our brothers and sisters across the world! Show more Show less
