Hi I'm Shelby

I'm a way crazy, super out there, kinda awesome, overly epic guy from Utah! I love my family; the Violin, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Utah! I have an amazingly wonderful family! I am # 5 of 6 kids, 2 sisters and 3 brothers! I have the coolest group of neices and nephews on the planet! I have been playing the violin for some years now, and its such a fun talent to be able to share with those around me.... Whether they like it or not!! I enjoy playing soccer and tennis, or just being outside with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church because i have found the answers that i was looking for. I was actually born into the church, but left for about 9 years. When i was 21 i decided that my life wasnt going the way i thought it should be. Things were always going wrong, and I was not content with the life i had . So one day i decided to actually sit down and start reading the Book of Mormon. I started slow, one or two pages a day, but then i realized, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! I fell in love with the Book of Mormon, and the Gospel, over a short span of time, which has really had a huge inpact upon my life! I decided I needed a change, and the Gospel gave that to me! I started attending church once more, and eventually decided, I HAVE TO DO MORE!! I spoke with my Bishop after about a month and decided to serve a mission! I am so gratful, because the restored gospel is the most amazing message on the planet!

How I live my faith

Well, for two years, I have decided to serve the Lord! I am in the best mission ever, South Carolina Columbia of course, and it ROCKS! I get to share with people the message of the restored gospel everyday, and on top of that, help them to find the same joy i have experienced! Its truly amazing! On top of serving a full time mission, I study the scriptures EVERYDAY, pray CONSTANTLY, and strive to be the best example I can be for the Savior!!
