Hi I'm Shelby

I love to smile. I love golfing. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am soon to be going to college in Twin Falls. I love people, love being around them and just having fun together. I love to make people happy. In my spare time I golf a lot. I really enjoy music...it is one of my favorite things to do is just chill and listen to music. If I could dance I would say I'm a dancer, but I will just say that I love to dance, not saying I'm good at all, it's just a huge stress reliever.

Why I am a Mormon

I have seen the teachings of this church truly change people including me. The teachings can make someone who has no hope be the most optimistic person you have ever met. They can push you through the difficult times and bring more joy into your family then anything else. The reason is because they are truly the teachings of Jesus Christ. These are his words and his actions. They are the fullness of His teachings. He wants us to follow them so that we can improve in this life. I have seen the power the Atonement, the sacrifice of Jesus Christ's life for us, change hearts so much. I know that because he died and suffered all things alone, we do not have to. We just have to turn to him and he will heal us. God is not just a thing we talk about or serve, He is a real person. He is our father, He has a perfect love for us. He has feelings and emotions. I know he will always answer our prayers. I know this because he has given me direction when it has been needed. He has let me know for a surety that the Book of Mormon and the Bible are from Him.

How I live my faith

I simply do as God asks. I live what I know is true by doing simple things like consistently praying for direction, studying the words of Christ, and loving people as Christ does. That is one thing I have learned is to truly love and serve others. I try to help someone out in some way every single day. Before I do things I always try to remember Christ and then think how He would react to my actions. This has led me to make better choices and live the things I know are true with exactness.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Shelby
We believe that the Bible is the word of God. The Old testament tells that Christ is going to come and take upon Him our mistakes and our pain. The New Testament helps me know how Christ lived and the Stories of His miracles. I know that the Bible is instruction from our Heavenly Father to lead us into the way that we are supposed to follow.
