Hi I'm Shawn

I am a college student. I love my family. I love sports. I love Jesus Christ and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Shawn. I'm going to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am from San Diego, California. I am attending Brigham Young University and loving it! I love sports, the outdoors, and spending my time with my friends. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and all the blessings it has brought to my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this Church since I was eight. I was baptized by my father. His father joined the Church in the 50's before my father was born. I love this Church because of the feeling of truth I receive and because of all the nice and friendly people I am surrounded by. This Church also has wonderful standards that are meant to keep me happy and safe as I live my life here on Earth. The Church has given me direction in my life to help me to where I am today. I know that everyone can benefit form hearing the words of our Heavenly Father through His servants here on Earth. I have come to know that we are all trying to achieve the same goal of improving ourselves and finally returning to our Heavenly Father who loves us.

How I live my faith

Currently I am attending Brigham Young University until I leave to serve a two year mission. Before I leave, I need to prepare myself. Every day I immerse myself in the holy scriptures. I mostly read from the Book of Mormon. This book combined with prayer to my Heavenly Father helps me to go about my day searching for things that I can do to serve Him and His children. I constantly ask the Lord to help me find ways to make someone else's day better or to be a better person and friend.
