Hi I'm Shay

I am a happy, go lucky girl with many goals and dreams in life. And I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a Senior in college studying Hospitality and Tourism Management in Hawaii. I love traveling and going on adventures with my family and friends visiting historic cities and seeing old architecture. I have two dogs, a husky/lab mix and a beagle. I am the youngest with 3 older brothers and 3 wonderful sister-in-laws. I love my family, they mean the world to me. I have been called to serve for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Peru Lima West Mission. I am excited to be serving the people in Peru, and to be a missionary for 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that by being a Mormon, I am happy. This gospel is a gospel of happiness. There are a lot of joys and truths in this gospel as it has the answers of where we come from, why we are on the earth, and where we go after this life on earth. Along with answering these questions, I know I can be with my family forever. This is one of the greatest blessings on earth and brings happiness into my life. To know that I can be with my family and also to be able to return to my Heavenly Father is one of the greatest joys in this life. There are many reasons as to why I am a Mormon: The Book of Mormon, Temples, and living prophets. Knowing these things brings peace to my soul.

How I live my faith

Each day I spend showing how I live my faith. Finding those around you that you can serve, taking upon many church callings, reading scriptures, praying for guidance and for the spirit to be with you. Elder Holland said in a recent CES fireside that "we are NOT to check our religion at the door." No matter where we go, who we are around, or what we are doing, we should be living our lives in the way of our religion everyday. It is by these examples and those around me who do live the gospel that strengthens my testimony of this gospel.
