Hi I'm Shakir Isaiah Sims

I'm a Southern Brother through and through. I'm a Musician, Dancer, Filmmaker, and Full Time Missionary. I'm Living the Dream!

About Me

I do A LOT of things that occupy my time. I play 5 instruments, DJ, Skateboard, write songs and scripts and film! As of now I am a Full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in the Fresno California Mission. I love music. Music is a part of everything I hear see and do. I find myself humming and beat-boxing new tunes and concepts a lot! It never stops! From cars on the street in a bustling city to crickets in the woods back home- everything is music. I love filming and creating music videos and short-films. I know that my talents will go far as I continue to magnify them. I thank the Lord for my many many wonderful blessings and talents. I thank my Heavenly Father for music and the impact that it has on me. James 1:17 Every good gift is from on high. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It's the most perfect thing on this earth. I can be in Tokyo, Japan and the gospel is still the same as it is in Newberry, South Carolina. There's no where else I'd rather be on Sunday than at church surrounded by lovers of God and proclaimers of the name of His son, Jesus Christ. I'm living the dream.

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly, there is no other place I would rather be than in the church. The members are without a doubt the nicest group of people you will ever meet, and there is always a shoulder to lean on. The atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ is central to the work that I will do as a missionary and the basis after which I will live my life. Being in this church gives me a light on every subject of life. I know that the Gospel answers all questions EVER in life. Try it out. You can't fool TRUTH.

How I live my faith

Everyday I wake up and be thankful for another day, all my talents, and my wonderful family. With the knowledge that I have, I set the example for all people I come in contact. I try to have a Christlike attitude whether or not anybody is watching. I live the Word of Wisdom by not partaking of or viewing things that are harmful to my body or mind. My group of friends and I are a light of the Gospel to all of those we meet. As a missionary I strive to bring people to the happiness that I have come to have as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I choose my friends wisely and surround myself with people who are willing to follow the teachings of the Lord.

Are Mormons Christians?

Shakir Isaiah Sims
Honestly, the term Mormon is a nickname. We are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We pray and worship God in the name of his son Jesus Christ... hence, "the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". Invite a missionary to your home. They will explain it all if you are willing to learn. Show more Show less
