Hi I'm Shelby

I'm a singer. I'm a piano player. I'm a tennis player. I love lipgloss. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission! I have been serving for a couple months now and I love talking with people and sharing this gospel because it makes me so happy. I love bringing the same joy and happiness to others!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon becuse I know the teachings are true. I grew up a member, so I know all the standards and I have chosen to continue to follow them. I love going to church and meeting new people to help me stay strong. I also love helping others hold on tight to the Iron Rod. I have a strong testimony of the Plan of Happiness; I know we will all be together in heaven again, just like we were before we were born. Also, I have a strong testimony of the Priesthood. I know it can work miracles. I'm not afraid to let my light shine and share the gospel with others. I want everyone to be as happy as I am, knowing the gospel. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know this because I have read it and I've asked if it was true, and I received my answer. I know anyone that chooses to do the same, with faith, will also receive this witness. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet called of God to restore this gospel and to bring forth the Book of Mormon. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that He loves me. Because He loves me, I strive to follow His example and live as He would have me live. He has helped me so much in these past couple months, I can't even describe the joy that comes from my knowledge of Him and how He has influenced my life.

How I live my faith

I serve anyone and everyone. I love being there for people. I let people know my standards and make decisions before I get myself into a situation where I have to make a hard decision. I surround myself with people who will uplift me and help me keep my standards. As a missionary, I have the privilege for letting everyone know who I am and who I stand for as I walk the streets of Ohio.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

We believe that through the grace of Jesus Christ we are saved. We are saved through His grace according to our faith. All we have to do is believe in Him. We show our faith through our works. The way we live our lives is how we show our faith. As we continue faithfully throughout our lives, we are saved by His grace. We are not saved by our works, but by His grace through our faith in Him. Show more Show less
