Hi I'm Austin Shurtliff

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student studying art, communications, and chinese. I am a designer, illustrator, photographer, and a web designer. Most of all I am a storyteller. I am married and have a beautiful little boy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I am a Mormon because of my desire to live together with my family for eternity. I have been blessed by the special teachings revealed to Joseph Smith by the power of revelation, such as: the power of the priesthood, the temple, and eternal marriage. I honestly can not imagine living life without some of the wonderful insights that are found only in the teachings of the Mormon church.

How I live my faith

Right know the most important way to follow Christ's example in my own life is by being a kind, loving, and serving husband and father. I try to find ways to serve both in my family and in my community. At church I am a Sunday School Teacher and I strive to bring the Holy Spirit into the lesson so that the class can be edified and uplifted.
