Hi I'm Shannon

I love to travel, go to the beach, and spend time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My family means everything to me and we love to spend time together. A couple of things that we love to do together is hiking and traveling. I am the youngest of four and have two brothers and a sister. I grew up in northern Nevada. I love to hike, run, have fun, and enjoy the beautiful Rocky Mountains, but the beach is where my heart truly is. I went to college for two years and will continue my education after serving a full time mission for my church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is Christ's church restored back onto the earth today. Whenever I travel by going somewhere across the country or even across the world I can find the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I know that it is the same True gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and everyone of us. The Plan of Salvation gives me so much hope and comfort for those of who I love whom have passed on from this life. It also helps me to see my life in more of an eternal perspective. When I was young my grandparents on my father's side passed away and it was hard to see them go. I miss them a lot but I know that because of the knowledge I have of the Plan of Salvation I will be able to see them again. In my sophomore year of high school my best friend tragically passed away. This was another huge trial of my faith and it caused me a lot of grief. One day I was talking to her and texting her and later that same day my mom and I were rushing to the hospital to see if she would be ok. During that time and even now I came to know that this life is precious and that the people we meet here on earth are not on accident. I am grateful for the time I was able to be with her and know that we will see each other again someday. I love to read the scriptures and especially the Book of Mormon because it gives me guidance and direction for me personally! It also gives me comfort and helps me to strengthen my relationship with me Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my very best everyday! I always want to do all that I can to serve those around me and to be a good example. When I was in high school I participated in a large community service club for three years that help other students and families in the community in need. In church I participated as a leader in youth activities that helped them increase their faith in Christ and have fun at the same time. I love to read the scriptures and to learn from the words of the living prophets. I am currently participating in a full-time mission for my church and love sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ all day everyday!
