Hi I'm Shauna

I was raised in the church. I'm an elementary school secretary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sew and do crafts. I enjoy meeting people so it works great being a school secretary. My family includes my wonderful husband, seven children and going on 22 grandchildren. Attaining my college degree took 30 years from beginning to end, but it was worth it. I love doing Family History research and finding out the wonderful stories of my ancestors. I love people!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because through the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have come to know my Savior. I love to feel His promptings on how to reach out to others. I love the power and message of the Book of Mormon. Recently I told the women whom I serve that the Book of Mormon is almost like magic. If you take the time to read from the pages of the Book of Mormon, the spirit will testify it is the word of God and help you in your life. I love the power of the priesthood of God as I have received many blessings that have given me strength and blessed the lives of my children and now grandchildren. I love to listen to a prophet of God, currently President Thomas S. Monson, teach what the Savior would have us know today to strengthen us. I love the attending the temple, knowing through the sealing powers of the priesthood, I can have my husband and children forever if we will be obedient and serve our Savior. The gospel means everything to me and I love the spirit that comes when I bear testimony of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I have been able to meet many wonderful people in my church callings. Serving with the younger children and teaching them songs was one of my favorite callings. Working with the youth was wonderful as I could try to help them in the struggle to get to know themselves and come to know how God could help them. Now I serve helping the women in my area and help them take care of their families. One of the most important messages that have helped all ages is the knowledge that their Heavenly Father knows them and loves them more than they can comprehend. He knows the names of everyone on earth, and will be there to help comfort and assist if we soften our hearts and come to know Him.
