Hi I'm Shawnie

I'm a nurse, dancer, music enthusiast, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a recent college graduate who spends my free time wakeboarding, dancing, or laughing with friends and family. I graduated in nursing and cannot wait to pursue a career in emergency medicine nursing one day; and hopefully eventually go back to school to become a nurse practitioner. Although I'm passionate about health and nursing, I'm even more passionate about sharing my beliefs in Christ. I'm currently in Argentina to serve and love the people there! And bring them the good news of the gospel. My primary assignment is as a mission nurse specialist so hopefully I can help people in that way as well. I may have missed sibling's/best friend's weddings, job offers, or new nieces/nephews but my experience in Argentina introducing others to the gospel and true happiness in life is even more rewarding and priceless!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy!! Not a brief, fleeting happiness; but a safe, comforting, peaceful happiness that is only present in my life if I am living the teaching of the LDS church. I know Christ lives. He is a real person and has truly suffered for not only my sins, but also my sorrows and heartaches. Why should I suffer again if my sorrows have already been covered once by His mercy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving others. I believe it is the smallest things that make the biggest difference and that is how I attempt to live. Sure sometimes I fail, we all do, we're human. But mostly I try to help and serve others. There is always someone who is having a worse day than me that I can help. Whether it's a family member or a stranger in the grocery store, I mainly attempt to show them kindness and love and treat them how Christ would want me to.
