Hi I'm Shaylin

I'm a Marvel fan, band nerd, but most importantly, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Shaylin(or Shay-Shay). I am fifteen years old and I love to sing. I also play the flute and piano, I'm a total band nerd. :) I love basically anything to do with Marvel or Sherlock Holmes.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon. I went to church because that is what I was raised to do. When I was 8 years old, it was time for me to decide if I wanted to get baptized. I seriously considered the question(well, as seriously as an 8 year-old can), and prayed hard. I received my answer, and I have never doubted the existence of my Father in Heaven since. Although I have a firm testimony, I still have hard days(we all do). But, I know that if I pray sincerely to my Father in Heaven, he will always answer me. I have felt his love many times, and I know that he is there, and that he is watching over me, over all of us.

How I live my faith

I live in an area with almost no members, but I love to talk to and teach my non-member friends about my religion. I preform on the piano and flute in church often, and sing. ;) I am proud to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We believe that our Father in Heaven is merciful and full of compassion. We believe that we were created in God's own image, meaning that he has a body much like our own. We believe that we are all sons and daughters of God(Romans 8:16) and that he loves us and sees our worth(D&C 18:10). We believe that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings(Acts 7:55-56). Doctrine and Covenants 84:102. Show more Show less
