Hi I'm Shayli Smith

I love to make others laugh. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am planning on attending college next year at Utah Valley University, majoring in culinary arts. I love doing outdoors things like hiking and bike riding and just anything outdoors. I hiked one 14er and hope to hike a lot more during my life. I also love to read. I am from a family of eight, and I am in the middle. I love hanging out with friends and I love to laugh and make others happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both of my parents are members, but if it weren't for their teaching and directing me in the correct direction, I don't know where I would be. Also, I am a Mormon because this is what I feel and know is the true church on the Earth. I have read the Book of Mormon countless times and each time I find something new. I feel God's love for me everyday and everyday I get some new experience that testifies to me the truthfulness of this gospel. When I pray, I know He is listening and I know He will answer even if it isn't right this moment. He will give you the answer when He knows is the right time. Even if He doesn't answer, go with what you feel is right. The Lord will never lead you astray, and if you are going the wrong way, He will guide you to what is best. I also know that He loves every single one of us and He sent His son Jesus to come down to Earth to die for us, just so we can return to Him. I believe and know these things to be true.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and I try to go Wednesdays for activities as much as possible. I also hope to be able to go out with the missionaries and help them. Everyday I try to be a good example and let the Light of Christ shine through me. I hope to be able to help others out when they need it, even if it is just by smiling.
