Hi I'm Shane

I'm the oldest of nine kids and grew up in many cities and states. I've always loved the Gospel and love to talk about doctrine.

About Me

I work for an investment company with helping clients and their accounts. I studied history at BYU, so I'm not sure how I ended up here, but I like my job. I love cooking, travelling, reading and talking about politics and religion.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ because it's the only way to truly discover my Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ. The Gospel is the only path to real happiness in this world, and the only way to develop pure love.

How I live my faith

I attend a family ward in South Jordan where I serve as often as I can in whatever there is to do.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

This life is our time to prepare to return to be with our Heavenly Father and Mother. To return to our heavenly home we rely completely on the grace of our brother, Jesus Christ and His mercy. We show our desire to return "home" by following the instructions (commandments) that we have been given by Jesus, the prophets, and the Holy Spirit (our conscience). Following these instructions will bring happiness in our lives and allow Christ to redeem us with his atoning sacrifice; it will also teach us how to live as God lives. This life is also a time to learn how to love our fellow men and women, our spiritual brothers and sisters. Show more Show less
