Hi I'm Shelby

I am from Utah. I am serving a mission in Texas. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. I enjoy talking with friends and family, running, walking, reading and playing the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my whole life. I have seen challenges and hardships and I can't imagine going through them without my Savior. He knows me and loves me. Through his Atonement, I can be healed and become better than I was before. I know that and I cling to that. I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. It truly testifies of Christ and his dealings with the people in Ancient America. The Book of Mormon gives me peace and hope. I know that as others read this book they will come closer to Christ and understand more fully what Christ has done for them. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet. Just like I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet and how grateful I am that the Priesthood has been restored to the earth. It is the power of God. Through the Priesthood, we can return to live with our Heaven Father and how happy I am for that day.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith be being an example to people around me. I try to make people feel comfortable and have fun. In my calling, I plan lessons and activities, so that we can all interact and get know one other.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. It tells us how we can return back to our Heavenly Father. It is a book written by prophets in America before the time of Christ. It testifies of Christ and his coming to earth and to America after his death and resurrection. Show more Show less
