Hi I'm Shawna

I'm an artist. I like hiking, strawberries, and rainstorms. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an artist, The Painting, drawing, sketching, guitar/piano playing and day dreaming kind. I believe that art appreciation is as much of a talent as creating is. I can't pick a favorite color because I love the entire crayon box. I am a people person. I used to spend a lot of time in the window seat of a café on campus- just to watch the people walking by. Sometimes I like talking, sometimes I like listening. In order to be happy I think you need a little bit of both. Everyone has a good story to tell- so I'll often ask for them. I'm currently serving as a full time missionary in the Washington DC South Mission. I am an adventurer. I could spend my whole life outside. Unless it's freezing. then I'm content adventuring museums, art galleries, and new cooking recipe's instead. I love to hiking, rock climbing, sight seeing, and trying new things. When it comes to a new adventure- camera documentation is necessary.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been blessed to have the church in my life for as long as I can remember- I am a Mormon, because it makes me happy. I don't need to be worried about what comes next, or sad if things don't go the way I plan because I know that I have a God and a Savior that love me. I know that They have a plan for all of us, and that through this plan we will reach our fullest potential, we will be able to overcome anything, and we will end up happier than we can even imagine! "Happily Ever After's" aren't just for fairy-tales, This Gospel makes them real!

How I live my faith

I've learned that you should never turn down a prompting from the spirit; and Listening to the prompting to go on a mission was probably the best thing I have ever done. Being a missionary is amazing- because my faith is weaved into every aspect of my day. I'm learning that everything you do can be centered around coming closer to Jesus Christ. As I Learn to be more like him, and as I see those around me learning to be more like him- I feel a stronger purpose in our existence as human beings.
