Hi I'm Shawn

I grew up in Utah. I biked 307 miles from Pleasant Grove Utah to Lake Powell. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy woodworking, and have learned to play the violin. I enjoy camping, hiking, and slot canyon repelling.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised as a Mormon all my life, but I always wanted to know for myself if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the true church on the earth. I read the Book of Mormon when I was 18 years old, and prayed to know for myself if it was true. God gave me the answer that it was true; my heart and spirit was burning with warmth that it was true, and from then on I have always known this Gospel is true. Because of this experience, I have a testimony of the restored Gospel on the earth. I also have a testimony that it was through Joseph Smith that God restored His Gospel back to the earth. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, and mistakes, and through His Atonement, if I repent, I can be forgiven.

How I live my faith

I have been called to help teach the Gospel in our ward. I have also been a youth activities committee member for my stake youth activities. I am also a home teacher, so I visit families that have been assigned to me from our ward, and help them with anything they may need, and I also prepare a spiritual message for them.
