Hi I'm Shaylee

I am the oldest of 4 girls. I love being around all my friends and family. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

A little about me is I really like running, sports (mostly playing volleyball and basketball), hiking and just tring to stay active. I like to shop and sew. I am the oldest of 4 girls so I have grow up with a lot of responsibility on my back. I really liked High School so when it was time to move out and go to college it was a tough transition because I didn't want to let go of that chapter in my life. But I did and I am so glad, it has been another great chapter and will be continued after my mission! I went 2 semesters of college then decided to serve a mission. I love people! I love helping, talking, and listening to anyone!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the comfort and happiness that this gospel brings me. I have grown up a Mormon my whole life. But the times that I have had to really stick on and gain my testimony for myself have come in times of struggle. And the way that I get through them is relying on this gospel. Knowing the Savior has done so much for me gives me strength and courage get through whatever I may be struggling with with His help. I learn from each trail. I'm not perfect, I make mistakes all the time but I know because of the Atonement I can become perfect like Him someday. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and that everything happens for a reason, for me to learn and to grow, so that one day I can return to live with Him and the Savior someday to have a never ending peace and happiness!

How I live my faith

One way that I live my faith is going to church every week. I love going to church! I get something out of it each week even if it is the amazing feeling that I have while I am there. I love to get advice on how to be better and better myself and I get lots of advice while I am there from the lessons and testimonies. I love to go to the temple and feel the peace there while doing the work there! And now because I have decided to serve a mission it is my calling now. I am preparing my best for this new calling in my life!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Mormon lifestye I feel is really similar to others. The only thing that could be different is that we try our best to become like Christ by following the commandments and teachings that we have received from Prophets and Apostless. The reason we do it is to be have real happiness and joy and to one day be able to live with Heavenly Father and the Savior again someday! Show more Show less
