Hi I'm Shala

I'm a cosmetologist, legal assistant, daughter of God, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an independent woman. Sometimes our roles as women are skewed throughout the world. Over the years, and after being divorced from my ex husband, I have learned that I am loved by my Heavenly Father. I faced an eating disorder, and I learned to rely on my Savior. I am now at a point in my life, that I have learned what love is. I am now engaged to a wonderful man, who loves me more than I could have ever dreamed, or how I ever thought I deserved.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? That's an interesting question. I am a Mormon, because I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that my Savior lives, that He loves me, and blesses my life. I put my will in his timing a few years back, and he has molded me into a beautiful, loving woman, who can conquer anything as long as I have my Savior with me, which I always do. I also know, that a 14 year old boy was the means in which this gospel came about. If it wasn't the one and only true gospel, wouldn't it have died out a long time ago, rather than growing to over 15 million members? Think about it.

How I live my faith

I love this Gospel so much. I have had various callings at church. I have taught every age in Junior Primary, served in a Primary Presidency, and even served in the Library for a time. I love to learn about this Gospel. I think my current callings are probably my favorites I have ever had. (Yes, that is correct, I have 2 callings.) I am currently a Relief Society Teacher, assigned to teach the General Conference talks. I am also serving on the Stake Activities Committee for my YSA Stake. I get a chance to learn more deeply of the gospel through my teaching calling, and then I get to be my social butterfly self with my activities committee calling. I'm very blessed to also be endowed, and to be able to attend the temple frequently to feel the peace that can only be felt there in a world full of chaos.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are one of the core reasons why we are here on this earth. We are here, to bring new lives into this world, and to become like our Heavenly Father, and we are His children. Wouldn't it make sense to learn how to be a family here then? We learn so much from our families, good and bad. Show more Show less
