Hi I'm Shaylynn

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Canada Halifax mission, I love to be with family and friends. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to write. Mainly poetry, but sometimes I venture into story writing. I love playing guitar and listening to music. I love playing games with my family, both board or card games as well as electronic. I love animals, and currently have two dogs and a fish. I have been to college, and plan on returning to explore a different course. I love being with my family and friends and I am currently a missionary serving in the Canada Halifax Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom and dad are converts to the church so I was brought into the church at a young age, and grew up being taught about the church. But when I was in my final year of school, I started falling away. I had doubts, I was struggling with depression and anxiety, and I felt God had abandoned me. So in my anger, I left. I started making decisions I had always been told not to make. Then, when I was 20, two missionaries came into my life and started teaching me about the gospel again. They taught me of Gods love for me, and how He never abandoned me, I was just to angry to see His hand in my life. And I know that now. I know that He will never leave us, and that he gave me my family and friends to help me through that point. I know that our families can be eternal through Him, and I know His son and my Savior Jesus Christ died for me and for everyone. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that we have prophets in the these latter days that guide us. I know this Church is true, and every day my testimony strengthens as I continue to learn and grow. I know it has changed and blessed my life, and it can change the lives of others who let Him in.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission for the Church in the Canada Halifax Mission. I love the opportunity to share what I know and love with the people in Atlantic Canada. I do my best every day to follow my saviors example.
