Hi I'm Shayla Fox

I grew up in Wisconsin. I'm Preparing to serve a mission. I couldn't be more excited, and am proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert of about 6 years now. A very special family in my life were actually the ones who introduced me to the church. I'm very thankful for them. I unfortunately am the only member of the church in my family. One day that will hopefully change though. I am not going to college right now, but have decided to serve a mission. I love to be outside, play board games, and hang out with my family and friends. I'm a very outgoing person, and love to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon!? Hmmm. Well at first I had no interest at all to take the lessons, or go to church. I didn't really care to be anything. Then one day at school a friend of mine asked me to come over, and spend the weekend with her. Which meant on Sunday I had to go to church with her and her family. I said ok fine. It turned out it wasn't that bad, and I started to take the lessons. It was not easy for them or me though. It took about 5 or 6 different sets of missionaries for me to finally be baptised. I had definitely gained a testimony by that time. To this day it grows, and gets stronger.

How I live my faith

I recently have been called as primary teacher, and branch missionary. I love to help organize and plan events at the church. I also sometimes help with music. I haven't really had the opportunity to go out on a regular basis to home teach and visit teach. But am excited to teach people everyday on my mission.
