Hi I'm Shannara

I'm an artist, a military brat who wants to see the world. But most importantly, I'm a Mormon !

About Me

Hey , I'm Shannara , I'm 17 :) I have passions in art ,culture and human rights .Growing up around the military I have Learnt to understand choice, freedom and having a willingness to give so that others may have a better life. I love looking for a new adventure and have found my religion to give me the greatest adventure of all . The need to help people has offered me the opportunity to become a lifeguard, work in my calling as a class president and most importantly to become a future sister missionary of 2016 !!!

Why I am a Mormon

As a third genoration my grandparents were the first in my family to convert to the gospel ,it has been a great blessing in my life to have grown up with the strength of the gospel around me. As I have grown I have faced my own personal situations and challanges which have helped me to understand my faith and help my testimony to grow. I am a mormon simply because I know this church is true. Through prayer and the many miracles I can see around me daily , I know that we are apart of a devine plan that our father in heaven constructed so that we may learn and grow to become like him. I know with all my heart that our prophet is a man of God and that the Book of Mormon was restored by Joseph Smith, a man whom acted as the lords hands because of his great faith and love. I am a a member of the church of our saviour Jesus Christ because I have received a knowledge of the truth of this church, and know it is the true church of Jesus Christ and to be just a teenager with this knowledge I am truly humbled and grateful. I know that as a mortal girl I can not be perfect in this life but to know the perfection of the church and to know that through it I can be perfected to lie with my loved ones for eternity is the greatness of this gospel.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I have found that to live by faith isn't to merely choose which values to live by but to stand firm in all of them, even when I faulter I work my hardest to return to my Heavenly Father. I try my best to be a good example to all those I meet and love to share my testimony of the gospel. As the young women's class president I work to serve my girls by ensuring they are happy and grow with confidence. It is a blessing for me to watch them as they become the individual women they are and to watch their testimonies grow with such faith as I can not describe. I am currently striveing in my preparation for a mission and anxiously await the day I may submit my papers finally !
