Hi I'm Shawna

I grew up in Maryland. I have my bachelor's degree in elementary and special education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent college graduate. I have my degree in elementary and special education. I was recently married. I enjoy spening time with my husband and family. I love to sing and take candid pictures.

Why I am a Mormon

This is God's church. I have realized that if I live by Jesus's example, I will have eternal happiness. The gospel brings true everlasting happiness to my life.

How I live my faith

My husband and I participate in service projects and activites to help thse in need. When I am giving service, I know that I am doing the Lord's work. My husband and I are scout leaders and we teach the yonger scouts about life skills and character traits.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

On Sundays we wear our sunday best. The ladies wear knee length skirts and a nice blouse or a dress. The men wear nice slacks and a white dress shirt and a tie (or a suit). Show more Show less

What is the Relief Society?

Relief Society is an important women's organization. The RS helps build relationships and strengthen faith of all those who participate. Every woman in RS looks out for eachother and helps eachother in times of need. About once a month (or more often depending on where you live) the RS has special homemaking meetings on a weekday and all the ladies gather together to share a skill or complete a service project. Last year I participated in a RS meeting where we made blankets and donated them to a local shelter. I know that RS was established to build faith and personal rightousness, strengthen families and homes, and help those in need. Show more Show less
