Hi I'm Shannon

I grew up in Southern Nevada. I love nail polish. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read and write and learn. I am going to college and I hope to someday have a career in publishing. I have a large family (seven siblings, 17 nieces and nephews) and I love spending time with them. I enjoy spending time outside, whether it's hiking, playing games, running, eating, or reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel. I love my Savior and His teachings. Living the gospel makes me happy. When I choose to follow Jesus Christ, I am more kind to others. I am able to be more proactive and organized in my own life. I know that following Heavenly Father's plan is right because I have felt that I am doing what He would have me do when I follow His commandments and when I follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I know my Heavenly Father and my Savior love me. I know that they have given us the true gospel and that it was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith and that I can grow closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ by reading it. I love to go to the temple because of the knowledge I gain while I am there and the peace that I feel from being in the House of the Lord. I know that as long as I am obedient to Heavenly Father I will be happy.

How I live my faith

I like going to church activities. It is fun to get to know the other members of my church and play games and participate in other fun activities with them. When I am home, I go to church with my parents and I get to spend time in primary with the kids and teach them. I especially love doing that because they are so cute and funny! I love the feeling of fellowship that grows from serving and being served.
