Hi I'm Shawn Crichton

I was born in New Zealand but raised in Australia and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a proud member of the Church. I have been raised by goodly parents. I have reaped the blessings from being active in the gospel. I leave in October 2014 to serve in the Philippines. I am grateful for the saviours guidance and the whisperings of the Holy Ghost.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church. Growing up I never really understood what it was to truly be a Mormon. As i matured I recognised that being a member wasn't normal it was a privilege. I slowly gained a testimony of the true Gospel. I know that if I put the Lord first in my life that he will provide a way for me to succeed. I hope to be able to endure to the end to gain eternal peace and happiness. Ultimately eternal salvation to be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I am currently the Male YSA leader in my ward. This calling has inspired me to be the best I can. Also it has assisted me in gaining the desire in my heart to serve a mission. My female YSA leader and I do all we can to invite others to come unto Christ by visiting, helping, teaching and being great role models to those around us. As I strive to become more Christ-like, I help others help me help them.
