Hi I'm Shane

I grew up in the Flint Hills of Kansas. I live and work on my family's cattle/horse ranch. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work on my family's cattle ranch in Kansas. I enjoy caring for the cattle and horses. I train and work with our younger horses and enjoy team roping. I also love playing sports, especially football and basketball. I love to hunt and fish and do anything outdoors. I just got done with my first year at BYU and am preparing for my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but I still had to gain my own testimony of the gospel. As I grew up I gained a testimony by studying and pondering the scriptures and the words of the prophets. I prayed to gain a testimony of these things and the Spirit of God confirmed the truth of it to me through a strong, warm feeling within me. As I have continued to grow, so has my testimony, little by little, as I continued to keep the commandments.

How I live my faith

I am a very active in my church, participating in all church meetings. I hometeach with my dad, visiting assigned members to help fellowship them. I strive to uplift others, both members and non-members. I stand as an example of what I believe. I pray day and night and read the scriptures daily.
