Hi I'm Shandie Demuth

I am a missionary for the Church. I am serving in Boston to share the happiness that comes from our savior, Jesus Christ.

About Me

I attended Eastern Arizona College. In high school I played volleyball, basketball, and track. I love sports and doing things outside. Swimming and hiking are two of my favorite activities and living in Arizona I get to do both. I love hiking the Grand Canyon and seeing the beauty that is in the world. I love laughing and doing things that bring happiness into my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon, but that does not mean that I always believed in it. There was a point in my life when I had to pray and ask our Heavenly Father if the church was true and if it was Christ church on the earth. I got an answer that was simple, but clear. I knew for myself that this is the Church of Jesus Christ, that Joseph Smith did restore the gospel and that the Book of Mormon is a gift from God and if we apply the principles that it teaches, we can gain a relationship with our Heavenly Father. I have decided to live what I know and to share that with everyone. That is a huge reason why I am serving as a missionary for our church.

How I live my faith

I have such a great love for Jesus Christ and I have been given a special privilege to share his gospel with everyone. We share a message that provides hope and peace in peoples life. Our message is centered on Jesus Christ and how he can bring us happiness. Some of the ways we can be happy is by having faith in Jesus Christ, and repenting and turning to him. As I apply those things to my life it makes me happier and more capable to share them with others so they can experience that same happiness.
