Hi I'm Shalysse

I am a student. I am a musician. I am a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a friend. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church, serving in Gilbert Arizona. I am a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, majoring in Elementary Education. I look forward to having a classroom of my own in the not-too-distant future. Music is a very important part of my personality. I am often found playing my ukuleles and singing with my family members. I thoroughly enjoy having jam sessions with my brothers and my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life. As I have grown and matured, I have had several opportunities to understand, know, and feel that this is the true church of Christ on the earth today. I know that if we strive to live the principles taught by our modern-day prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and if we honestly and sincerely seek to understand the doctrines taught in the LDS church, that we will grow closer to God, that He will bless our lives, and that we will experience more peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

There is nothing that makes me smile more than participating in little acts of service for the people I love. I recently started the habit of attending Bingo hour at a local nursing home, and I cannot even begin to describe how much I cherish the relationships I have fostered there. I started out thinking that I would serve the elderly in my community, but I have learned more from them - they have benefited me far more than I have helped them. I am preparing to serve as a representative of Jesus Christ on an 18 month mission to Gilbert Arizona. I am so looking forward to the opportunity to serve the people in that area and to build relationships with them.
