Hi I'm Shanie Rowley

Sports are my passion. I love to be outdoors. I am a proud wife and mother of an adorable little boy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 24 year old mother who recently graduated with a Masters of Accountancy. I just passed all four parts of the CPA exam and am on my way to becoming a Certified Public Accountant! I work part-time from home while taking care of my adorable little boy. He brings so much joy into my life with his new-found smiles and laughs. I love to play sports as much as I can. I also enjoy hiking, skiing, country dancing, sewing, and baking. I love to spend time with my husband and family and can never get enough of them!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is what I know and grew up believing. However, this is not the reason I continue to go to church each week and continue to follow His gospel. I am a Mormon because I believe that the church is true and that this is His gospel. Throughout my life I have gone to the Lord in prayer and sought answers to questions about the church. In every instance where I sincerely prayed and desired to know the truth I have felt the peace and reassurance of the Holy Ghost. All of these little experiences and confirmations are what make my testimony of the Gospel so sure. This testimony is centered on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that He suffered and died for us in order to save us through his infinite grace and mercy.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith an every aspect of my life. Whether it is school, work, sports, or just everyday life, I strive to pattern my life after the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. I am continually humbled by how far I have to go to be more like the Christ. I am far from perfect, but what matters is my continuous effort and commitment to live a Christ-centered life by keeping the commandments. Because of my faith I read my scriptures and pray daily, go to church each Sunday and keep the Sabbath day holy, serve others in my community, and abstain from addictive substances. I don't do all of these activities because I am forced to by church leaders. I do them by personal choice in order to show my love for God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ.
