Hi I'm Shandee Sheffield

I have lived in various areas of Utah all of my life. I am 20 years old and will soon be serving a full time LDS mission.

About Me

I like to be active. I play softball and volleyball and love to be in the mountains whether I'm hiking, camping, swimming, etc. I have attended 2 years of school at Utah State University. I have 4 brothers and I adore my family. I will be leaving on an LDS mission to Chicago Illinois.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because I know without a doubt how true our church is. No other church has the full package and all the instruments necessary, such as we do, to perform ordinances and to have eternal families. We have a living prophet on the earth today who leads and guides us. And we have a loving Heavenly Father who knows each and everyone of us. He is aware of our needs. He sent His son here to be crucified so that we may be saved and what greater sacrifice is there. I chose to be Mormon because there is no better way to live your life. I am so happy because I have the knowledge of the Gospel in my life. This church is true.

How I live my faith

I attend a young singles adult ward every Sunday to practice my faith. I also attend social activities through my ward weekly to meet and interact with new people. I am a visiting teacher and have been a visiting teacher coordinator.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Shandee Sheffield
As a member of the LDS church our stand point on families is that we can be together forever. Families are our strongest bonds and the people we can always fall back on. We believe that through certain keys families can be bonded for eternity. When a family member is lost in this earthly life it is not the end and knowing that it is not the end gives families hope. Families have the knowledge that they can be with their loved ones again in the after life because we have the keys to be sealed for eternity. Show more Show less
