Hi I'm Shanae

"I love to learn self defense, dance to all types of music and cook new things. I'm a mormon

About Me

I am a junior in College and I am studying to be a speech therapist one day. I love to dance to all types of music. My favorite is country music I love to sing a long to the songs on the radio by Taylor Swift and Brad Paisley and I really want to learn how to do flips and turns in the air. I love watching romantic chick flicks and eating popcorn with chocolate chips with my roommates. Last year for my birthday I went to Thailand and rode on an elephant. I just returned home from teaching English in Taiwan where I taught children from ages 3-5. I want to travel the entire world some day with the Love of my life as my constant companion.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because it brings me so much joy. I have been around people that do not believe as I do and I can tell that even though they think that their life is happy it just feels dark and confusing. I want and need the light that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me. I know that I am happiest when I am in close contact with the Lord. As I pray to him I know that he hears me and loves me very much. He knows that life can be scary and very difficult at times, but he also wants me to know that I am not alone and that as I do my best to live as he would I can have his spirit to be with me. I can have personal protection, peace, and joy in knowing that I am loved and that there is a purpose in this life. This life is so short and the Lord has great things in mind for me. There is pain on this earth, but there is also great joy to be had and the Lord wants us to experience it and it through living your life the best that you can, you can experience the full happiness he has prepared for you. And I know this with all my heart and I say this in the sacred name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by choosing to act as Jesus Christ would if he were on the earth. I am willing to volunteer in gospel discussions for my church. I get together with a fellow peer and pray to know what and how we should teach our lesson and then we work to teach it in a way that our class needs to hear. I also organize activities each week to get our church more unified. I believe that the gospel should be spiritual but it should also be a lot of fun. I work to be a friend to everyone by following my personal motto of "Always be the first to say Hello". I also go out and visit with one or two women from my church and share spiritual experiences from my life that can help them as I get to know them on a personal basis.
