Hi I'm Shallyn

Missouri is where I call home. Currently I am student at BYU-Idaho. I have been called to serve a mission in Chile!

About Me

I am a college student studying Visual Communications. I love being outside and enjoy living on the farm. I have 4 crazy brothers that I love so much. Volleyball is awesome. I love playing the piano. And I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that is completely LDS, so the church has always been a part of my life! But I also had to pray and come to know for myself that this church is true. I follow the example of my parents and also the example of my church leaders including the Prophet and other General Authorities. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ along with the Bible. I know that when we ask God in faith through prayer he will answer our prayers and that's how I came to know that the church is true. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith through example and service. I have donated hours of my time to helping others. My senior year of high school I spent an hour each school day at the local elementary tutoring the children. When I graduated I then served as the Gospel Doctrine Instructor and the President of the women's organization at church. When at work I strive to act and talk in such a way that my co-workers and others I meet see me in a way that would be pleasing to my Heavenly Father. I continue to try to be that example.
