Hi I'm Shoney

I am from a small town in Southern Utah and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I come from a very small town of about 500 people where everyone is like family. I am currently serving in the Alaska Anchorage Mission and loving it! I enjoy participating in sports such as Volleyball and Basketball and am starting to learn how to play the guitar.

Why I am a Mormon

While growing up it was very easy to live off of my parents testimony of the church. However, when I graduated and moved away I found myself questioning a lot of things. I stopped attending church each week and stopped praying. That is when I found myself being the most miserable, I didn't know what to do, things weren't going my way and I just wasn't happy. I had to decide for myself that I needed to start going to church and turning to my father in heaven. As I did this and started reading my scriptures everything started falling into place again. I was happy, I knew what I wanted to do and be in life, and my love for this gospel increased tremendously. I know that this gospel is true and that heavenly father loves each one of us and wants us to be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best me I can be. By following the example of Jesus Christ, and sharing his love with everyone everyday.
