Hi I'm Shawn Hansen

I am a Mormon and believe in Jesus Christ.

About Me

I have been married for 22 years to a wonderful and beautiful woman. I am the father of six children (5 girls, 1 boy) and a grandpa. I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, riding ATV's, exercising and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and baptized at 8 years of age. As I grew up I saw the happiness that came from my families beliefs in Jesus Christ and belonging to his church. As I grew older I desired to understand more fully if the church was right for me and read the Book of Mormon and gained testimony of that book. Because of this book coming forth there is continuing revelation to God's children here on the earth today. This is very important to me to know what God's will is for us today and be able to use this revelation in my life. I am grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ that makes it possible for me to repent and be forgiven of my shortcomings. And also that it makes it possible for each of us to return to our Heavenly Father some day. The knowledge that being able to live with my family for eternity brings me great comfort and motivation to live my life in such a way so that I can be with them.

How I live my faith

My faith encompasses who I am. Everything I do and the decisions I make are all based on my belief in Jesus Christ and his church. Knowing that I have a loving Heavenly Father that is concerned about me and wants to help me with everything I do brings me great comfort and happiness. As a father I feel a great responsibility to teach my children about the Savior Jesus Christ and how the church can bring them great happiness. I enjoy serving in the church whether it be with teaching the children or providing service to other members or people that live around me.
