Hi I'm Andrea Shumway

I am a college student. I love eating, hiking, laughing, and I love my family and friends. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am from Draper, Utah. I am currently a college student at Brigham Young University. I love art and I hope to be studying Art History. I love traveling. I have three older brothers and have had boys as my best friends my whole life. I am one of the boys. I love my family and my friends. And most importantly I love the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I am very blessed to have been born into a family that were members in the church. That being said, I made my own decision to be active in the church. My parents and brothers were all great examples, but I had to gain my own testimony of the gospel. I am mormon because of the peace I feel each time I feel the spirit. I am mormon because I love my Savior and want to become closer to Him. I know that this church is true and I love it with all of my heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each week as well as reading my scriptures and praying each day. I have had the opportunity to serve in so many fun callings. I had the chance to serve as a counselor in the Special Needs Mutual program where I would attend each week and spend time with my "buddy". I have also been able to serve on a committee to plan get-togethers for the sisters in my ward. It has been a blast, I mean who doesn't love to plan parties?
