Hi I'm Shelby

I grew up in Colorado. I've performed in the circus. I'm currently serving the Texas Houston East mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I started dance and karate when I was 3. Then gymnastics when I was 8, followed by circus when I was 11. Even though I wanted to start performing in big circuses when I turned 18 and graduated high school, I instead attended BYU-Provo and dove on the schools team. I am now serving a mission down here in Texas!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the love and hope offered by this Gospel, and I know that it is only through this that I can resist the temptations of the world and find joy and happiness and peace in this life here on earth. I feel like I am selfish and very absorbed in my own doings and achievements,but because of the Gospel and the principles it teaches I am constantly striving to overcome my self-absorbed nature. Now instead of wondering what I am going to do, and how I am, I find myself trying to make sure others know how much I love them and that I am there for them.

How I live my faith

When I lived at home I was in charge of the Young Women and helped organize events and made sure that everybody was included and thought of.
