Hi I'm Shantel Falslev

I grew up in Utah. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Shantel and I am currently serving a mission in Budapest, Hungary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love being a missionary and helping others come unto Christ. This Gospel makes me so happy and helps me through the hard times that I have in my life. I attended Brigham Young Univesity-Idaho before leaving for my mission. I want to be an Elementary School teacher. I love to be outside and going hiking and fourwheeling with my family. I love to read and learn anything and everything. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed for myself to know whether or not this church is true. I can still remember the day when I didn't really know if the church was true or not. So I prayed, and prayed and prayed. Then I opened my scriptures and studied them, really desiring to know if God was aware of me and what I was going through. As I studied the scriptures and spent time in them, I felt peaceful inside and calm despite the trials that I was facing at that time. I know that Heavenly Father and the Savior does know me personally and loves me very much. I know that my Savior and Redeemer lives. This Gospel has brought so much happiness into my life and into my family's life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith sharing my knowledge and testimony with others. I show my faith by striving my best to be the best I can be every day. I am currently serving as a missionary for the church and so I have the priviledge of sharing my testimony every day to those around me. As I share my testimony with others, my own testimony grows. I love the Gospel and the happiness that it brings into my life. Being a missionary has been the best experience I have ever had. Serving others and testifying of Christ brings so much happiness to my life.
