Hi I'm Shaun

I am from Orem, Utah. I am currently a full time Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest child of five. I've got two older brothers and two older sisters. During high school, most of my waking hours outside of school were divided between spending time with my siblings (my best friends), Marching Band Rehearsals and World of Warcraft. I marched in my high school marching band for five years, 4 years on the Alto Saxophone and I switched to brass for a year to play the Baritone. I graduated from High School with an Associate's Degree in "University Studies" -- Which is just a fancy name for my generals. I am currently serving a full time mission in Pocatello, Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in this church. It wasn't until I was a Junior in high school that I understood what being a member of this church means. At the same time I discovered a desire to learn more, to become a better person. I began by reading the Book of Mormon, then taking the challenge given in Moroni chapter 10. I prayed. God answered. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. That Jesus Christ is our Savior. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. I know that Thomas S. Monson guides us today.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Full Time Missionary. I have been called to teach people about Christ. I have the privilege of spending two years sharing what I believe with others. I know how it has blessed me. I want it to bless others. I live my faith by trying to be an example to others. I live my faith by trying everyday to improve and become just a little bit better than I was the day before. The gospel is to make bad men good and good men better. What good is having knowledge about anything if you don't use it? So when you learn you are required to change. To become better than you were before.
