Hi I'm Rhett Shaw

I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. I am currently serving a full-time mission in Portland Oregon. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE BEING A FULL-TIME MISSIONARY! It brings me much joy to be able to something that means so much to me with those that I love. I love Portland, OR and the many experiences that I have had so far with my mission...best calling ever! I love My family and my 3 sisters; I also love being a triplet! One of my favorite hobbies is running!

Why I am a Mormon

I developed my testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by relying on faith. I grew up in the church, but wanted to know if it was true for myself. I tried to listen to my parents and leaders counsel and did my best to obey. When I was twelve I realized that this church was true. It didn't come suddenly, but it came over the course of my choices. When I followed my parents, bishops, and the prophets counsel and read my scriptures, said my prayers, magnified my callings, I developed a testimony of my own. Through my experiences my testimony continues to grow. As I share it with others, the spirit testifies to me that it is true. I have a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and his infinite atonement. I am so grateful to know that he lives and loves me! I know he loves everyone. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true! It fills my life full of joy and happiness! I am full of gratitude.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others in the community and enjoy visiting with others. When I serve my love for others grows. Whenever I want to be happy, I just do service! It's the best remedy to any of my problems.
