Hi I'm Shawn Lords

I was born and raised in the United States. I love the temple. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have two awesome sisters, three great brothers, and a wonderful mom and dad! Both of my sisters are married and have given me two incredible little nephews. I love spending any time I can get with my family. I like to play the piano and swim. I have been in band, choir, and on the swim team. I've worked on a farm and a ranch and loved both.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's true church upon the earth today. The Spirit has testified this to me multiple times. I know that we can communicate to our Father in Heaven through prayer. I know that God knows and loves each and every one of His children individually. I know that Joseph Smith saw the Father and His Son and restored His church on the earth again. I testify that Thomas S. Monson is God's living prophet on the earth today. I know that Jesus Christ died for all men and Suffered for each of us. I know that He lives again and that He was risen from the tomb. I know that through Him we can live again and return to a loving Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

When I was 17 I was President of a stake young mens camp. I was able to lead these young men in different activities and through doing so we were both strengthened. I was an assistant 11 year old scout leader and had a wonderful time helping the boys with their scouting. I have played the piano for the ward choir and in different meetings in church.
