Hi I'm Shea

I was born in Moscow, Russia! I love my religion, family, and friends! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I enjoy spending time with my family and making sure I am always in contact with them! I love being outside especially playing golf with my dad! I am very blessed to have a wonderful family and good friends along the way! I enjoy scrap-booking and writing letters in my spare time! I just recently finished my first semester at Brigham Young University - Idaho and I am currently serving in the Massachusetts Boston Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 2 years old I was adopted in Moscow, Russia by an LDS family that lived in Provo, Utah at that time. My family knew they needed to adopt me as much as I knew I need them. I know that this was the Lord's plan. I grew up with the gospel in my life and I couldn't image my life without it. I am truly grateful for a Loving Heavenly Father that knows me and prepared a way for me to have the gospel in my life! When I was baptized at 8 years old I knew from there how important it was to make sure I lived my life in obedience. From that time of baptism my faith has grown tremendously! I have grown so close to my Heavenly Father and I know he lives. I know his son, Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and for everyone that lives on this earth today. I know that I can fix any mistake I make in my life. I know the Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and we can grow closer to our Savior as we read, ponder, study, and live righteously. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and that plan is called the Plan of Happiness. I know that families can be together forever! I know that President Thomas S. Monson is our current prophet today to lead and guide this church in righteousness. I know that I am a daughter of God and that he loves ME! I love him! I am truly grateful for the opportunity to serve for 18 months in the Massachusetts Boston Mission and teach those who are searching to come unto Christ! I know Christ lives and those who come unto Christ will be truly blessed!

How I live my faith

I live by faith by taking the next 18 months to serve in the Massachusetts Boston Mission! I know that this is what I am suppose to do at this current time of my life! I have grown so much since I have made this decision! I know that the Lord is watching over me, my family, and others I love everyday! I strive everyday to live my life in obedience with the teachings of the gospel. I strive to endure to the end and always have a positive attitude!!!
