Hi I'm Shauntel Byron

I was born and bread in Utah. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Shaunzi and I love the church! I have been studying family and behavioral sciences. I'm interested in families and how they function. I eventually want to become an adoption agent and help others start a family. I love to dance, sing and anything else that involves preforming. I also enjoy the outdoors, especially the rain and snow.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! I know that the best way to find true joy in this life is to follow Christ. The gospel makes me happy because I know I can be with my family forever. I know I can repent and through the atonement the Lord will forgive me. I know I can become better and help build the kingdom here on this earth. I am a Mormon because I know that our prophet speaks with God. I am a Mormon because I can feel God and Christ's love for me when I obey the commandments.

How I live my faith

I just finished teaching the women of my ward. We gather every sunday to learn about the gospel and how we can become more Christlike. I also set up activities for the youth in my ward every monday. We get together to have fun with others that seek happiness through Christ. I will be leaving on a mission very soon. I will be teaching people about the church through service and lessons.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Shauntel Byron
In mormon temples we learn truths about how to live this life according to the gospel. We also learn about where we were before we came to earth and where we are going after. We make promises to God and participate in ordinances. Families are sealed so that they can be together for eternity. We also perform baptisms for those that passed on without the opportunity to recieve the gospel of Christ, however it is up to them to accept or decline this ordinance. Show more Show less
