Hi I'm Shaun

I grew up in South Carolina. I was raised by a single mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy the outdoors and especially soccer. I am a father to 3 wonderful boys. I am in graduate school working to earn a PhD in biological sciences. I was raised by a single mother. I served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have lived in mainland China.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith means a lot to me. I was raised by a single mother who showed great faith in the face of opposition. As a teenager, my father discouraged church activity, and my faith was tested. As a teenager, I turned to prayer and the Book of Mormon for direction, and my life has never been the same since. Prayer coupled with the study of the Book of Mormon gave me strength to overcome the trials I was facing in my life. After I gained my testimony, I sought out to share how the gospel of Jesus Christ can change lives. I served as a full-time missionary for two years. The experiences I had as a missionary changed my life. I learned for myself that the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have the power to change our lives if we let it. I'm a Mormon because I know that God infinitely loves each of us. I learned this from the Book of Mormon. That knowledge has given me the power to work through all the problems I have faced and will face. The lessons I have learned from living my faith prepared me to become the husband and father for my children and wife that they deserve to have.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to give service in many different ways through my activity in the church. I am currently a Sunday school teacher where I lead discussions about different teachings from the Bible, Book of Mormon, and other scriptures. My experience as a Sunday school teacher has taught me that the lessons from the scriptures are extremely applicable to our lives today.
