Hi I'm Shona

Student, outdoor enthusiast, ice cream lover, avid picture taker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love photography, there's something magical about capturing a peaceful moment in time.I take a lot of pictures of flags and I've started taking pictures of them whenever I have the chance. I love just looking at the beautiful world all around us. I always have my camera ready, wherever I go. I also love to hike and play sports especially tennis. I have been attending school to receive my social work degree. Helping others is what truly makes me happy, I believe that everyone no matter their background should have the opportunity to change and that's why I am going into social work. I want to make a difference. I am also a political junky, I feel that it is important for us to stay informed with the current events happening around the world. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters, I come from a blended family and love them all dearly. Spending time with my family is one of the most important things to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to my Heavenly Father to know if it was true. When I did this, such a peaceful and happy feeling came over me that there was no denying the truthfulness of it. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that it was translated by Joseph Smith, a prophet of God who restored this Gospel in these Latter-days. I know that President Thomas S Monson is a prophet of God who leads our church today under the direction of our Heavenly Father. This Gospel brings me such peace and happiness and I know that without it I would never be able to overcome the trails that come my way. I also know that our Father in Heaven loves us so much and wants us to enjoy life and be happy, and I receive that joy through this Gospel and am so grateful for it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving the Lord as a missionary full time, and I am loving every minute of it! This gospel truly is the gospel of change, every single day as I strive to be more Christlike I am improving and striving to reach my full potential as a Daughter of God. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me so much and expects me to do the best I can and knowing that helps me to live my faith and be an example to others. I know without a doubt that this is Christs church restored on the earth, and that knowledge gives me peace, hope and joy. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share it with others so that they can feel that love and happiness that I do as I strive to live it!
