Hi I'm Shelby

I'm a small town girl, almost everthing I own is Orange, I love to make people laugh...and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Oklahoma, and moved to Sourthern Nevada when I was about 3....I was born and raised in the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I always loved going to church activites, and I have always loved the emphasis the gospel has on Families....Because of that my family and I have always been close!!! I LOVE IT!!!! I graduated from High School in 2009. Went off to College at Dixie State College in St George, UT. I had a great job. Then one day I decided I needed to go on a mission...so I packed my things moved out of my apartment the middle of August...moved home, and started my papers...in about a month and a half got my call and left for the MTC!!! It is amazing....I love sharing the Love that God has for me with others that may not have that ability to find that love for themselves...It's been a blessing and a humbling experience going into a home and expecting to teach people and I walk out of their home with them having taught me instead!!! I love my calling as a full time missionary...IT'S AWESOME!!! So yeah...That's me...I love life and have so much to be grateful for every day of my life, and I know it comes from the knowledge I have of a Father in Heaven that loves me for me.

Why I am a Mormon

Like I said...I was born and raised into the church!!! It's what my family has always done...BUT...I never HAD to go if I didn't want to...I GOT to go to church with my family every Sunday to feel the Spirit. It is a choice that I make to learn more each Sunday...I have had too many experiences in my life that have strengthened my testimony that it would be impossible for me to deny the doctrines of the gospel!!! I am so grateful for the knowledge I have of life after this life on Earth...and the re-assurance that I will see those I love again, and that I will recognize them and be with them for all eternity!!! That is truly a blessing in my life!!! I am grateful for a Prophet and apostles called by God again on this earth...How lost I would be without their guidance and their counsel!!!

How I live my faith

Since I was 12 I have had responsibilities in my home congregation, home stake, and beyond...I have been in leaderships positions, pianist for auxiliaries, etc...I have always loved it...It has strengthened my testimony and faith in the orginization of the Church...I am now living my faith by serving in the greatest calling of all time...and that is of a mission where I am teaching God's Children about the faith that i am living...I wouldn't be on a mission if I didn't know for sure that my faith that I am living was true!!!
