Hi I'm Shayla

I was born and raised in Utah. You can almost always find me with my family. I love to laugh and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sister, daughter, missionary, and friend who loves nothing more than to be with my family, no matter what we're doing. I love to dance, shop, laugh, and be outside. The beach is my favorite place to be, enjoying this beautiful earth that has been created for us. I will be leaving for the Oklahoma Oklahoma City Mission in July and I am so excited to share this wonderful thing we call the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is the only true church on the earth today and it brings me and my family so much happiness. I cannot imagine my life without this Gospel. It provides peace, comfort, joy, blessings, and gives my life direction. My parents raised me in the church but over the years I have gained my own personal testimony that this is God's church. I am grateful for the knowledge I have that families can be together forever, that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and every one of us, and to know that we are all children of God and we are never alone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church meetings, reading words from past prophets and also modern day prophets, and constantly communicating with my Father in Heaven to help me with my daily decisions and to just talk because I know He wants to hear from me. I have the opportunity to teach a class to 9 year old children and it has been such a blessing because as I teach them, the spirit is teaching me.
