Hi I'm Shawn

Hi! I am a second generation convert, I am an eagle scout and I really like the performing arts and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Arkansas, but my father was a truck driver so we traveled a lot, at one point my mother joined the church and we moved to Utah. My father was in and out of my life until he left, and I struggled because of it. I really stuck to the church and what friends that I had to help me through life. I've pursued many different hobbies, I earned my eagle scout award, I enjoy camping, boating, rock climbing, and fishing, I can play guitar, piano, percussion and voice, and I enjoy musical theatre! When I was 15 my mother, my sister and I moved to California where we currently live, and I have finished High School and on my way to serving a mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can't think of anything else that I'd want to be more if I had to choose. I watched my mom join the church and support her two kids as a single mother, I've seen miracles worked and I've been blessed by the church so much. But I've also seen my father stay away from the church, and I've seen him struggle with addictions and finance and how difficult it has been for him, and I don't want that for myself or my family. I've struggled with my testimony quite a few times, but I always pray, and refer to Moroni 10 to help remember why I chose to get baptized, and how much my life has been blessed, and I can't think of any other group of people that I would want to be a part of. I know the church is true, and I've chosen to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is I have a few different callings. I have served many times in charge of young mens' groups, I play piano in church and I perform in most of my stake's choirs! When I was in charge of the young mens' groups I would plan service activities and activities to help get more of our boys out there and having a good time with their friends and I did my best to include everyone that I could. I currently serve as assistant ward mission leader to help serve our members in need!
