Hi I'm Shauna Merrill

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Shauna. You can usually find me traveling, working, or at the library studying. Four-wheeling, boating, sports, the beach... I just can't get enough of it all. I'm a sucker for fresh flowers, lipstick, and all things pretty. I am a student studying Community Health Education and I work at a nearby hospital.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. The Book of Mormon is the single most influential thing in my life. When I read the words of that book prayerfully, I am filled with the spirit and I am able to feel my Heavenly Father's deep love for me and all of His children. The gospel of Jesus Christ grants me vision of who I want to become and how to live my life with purpose. I'm grateful for the knowledge I have that families are eternal. There is nothing I want more than to be with them, in the presence of my Heavenly Father, forever. In a world of changing morals and values the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only sure and constant thing in my life.

How I live my faith

A huge part of my life is service. It is in those moments of service that I feel closest to God. I am able to feel a love for others beyond what I thought was possible. I served a full-time, 18 month, mission in Brisbane, Australia and to this day consider it one of the greatest decisions I've made.
