Hi I'm Shylie Richardson

I am a full-time missionary serving in the Missouri St. Louis Mission. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest child out of six kids. Before my mission I went to school and worked full time at the University of Utah. (Go Utes) I am really indecisive and have changed my major a million times. I love camping and four wheeling and being a missionary! I danced for 15 years and love reading and writing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because through my different life experiences I have been able to feel what it is like to have the gospel in my life and even more, what it is like to be living it! I know that this is God's kingdom on the earth and the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet called to restore the church to the earth. I have testimony of the principles and standards we are given as members of the church and I know that by following them I can return to live with my Heavenly Father. I know that I can be with my family for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by fulfilling my callings. I have held many callings in my different wards and am now serving as a full-time missionary in the Missouri St Louis Mission. I live my faith my trying my best to be an example of Christ. I strive to be kind, diligent, patient, hard working, and faithful. It is hard sometimes, but I think it is so important to strive to live like Christ. Serving a mission has strengthened my knowledge of the gospel and helped me to realize that love is one of the best ways we can live our faith. I live my faith by showing others that I love them through service, simple acts, and my desire to share the gospel.
