Hi I'm Shanelle Seegmiller

I was born and raised in Utah. I have five siblings, and am currently serving in the Seoul Korea Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be active and be outdoors. In my free time I like to play basketball, soccer, sand volleyball, hiking, biking, really anything active. I'm a student at the local University and hope to go into the field of Physical Therapy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because nothing in this world makes me happier than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the perfect example of how to live, serve, love, and make it back to our Heavenly Father. In times of trial, I can feel my Savior there giving me comfort. When times are good, I know he is there cheering me on. He wants me to succeed and I want to make him proud. I want to wake up every morning a little better than the day before. I want everyone in the world to be able to feel the peace, comfort, and incredible joy that comes from a personal relationship with our Father in Heaven and his son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My callings in my ward include being a visiting teacher and publicity chair. Visiting teaching is great because it gives me and other ward members the opportunity to get to know those around us better than we might normally. We are able to serve those in need. Whether it's going out to frozen yogurt, making cookies, or giving a spiritual thought, it's always fun to spend time with the other girls. In publicity, I am in charge of making the programs each week for our Sunday meeting. I also send out texts during the week to remind ward members about upcoming activities.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Shanelle Seegmiller
The temples are truly God's house on earth. They are very sacred and holy. No unclean thing can enter into his presence, so members must hold themselves to a higher standard of living in order to enter His house. They are not secret, but the work done in temples are very sacred. In the temples, ordinances are performed for both the living and the dead. It is not a work for this earth alone, but it seals things in heaven as well. Show more Show less
