Hi I'm Shannon

I am a civil engineer and mother. I love to go hiking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a civil engineer who loves to design buildings. Right now I am taking a break from my career to be a stay-at-home mother of 3 children. I love taking care of my children and watching them grow. I enjoy hiking in the hills near my home and taking cycling classes at the gym. I enjoy reading books and trying new gluten free recipes.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I prayed to know if I should be a member of this church and I received an answer. My parents were members of this church and when I was growing up taught me about the scriptures and the Savior. When I was 16 years old I decided I needed to know for myself if this was where I should be. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was the word of God. I received an answer to my prayer. I felt that the Book of Mormon was from God and that this church was the restored church of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit testified to my heart and mind as a feeling of joy and peace. I love Jesus Christ because he is my brother and He knows and loves me. When my problems become too much to bear I can pray and give the trials over to Jesus Christ and He helps carry my load. He atoned for my sins so that I can return and live with God again. When I read the scriptures I feel close to Him and feel of His love. I show my love for Him by serving others and trying to be more like Him everyday.

How I live my faith

I work with the young women, ages 12-13, in my church. We meet once a week for activities and also on Sunday for church services. I enjoy spending time with them while we do service projects, learn new skills, and have fun together. They have so much energy! I am amazed by their desire to make good choices and be positive examples to their friends and family.
