Hi I'm Shannon

I grew up in Portland Oregon. I attended Utah Valley University. I will be serving a mission in the Tahiti Papeete Mission.

About Me

I played Lacrosse all through high school and played at Utah Valley University. I received my mission call in July to the Tahiti Papeete Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God loves me. When I have been going through my toughest trials He gives me strength. I would not be who I am today if it were not for the Church and I thank Heavenly Father every day that I am a part of it. I know that the gospel can work miracles in people's lives because I have seen them in my own. I am a Mormon because I love the church, I love Jesus Christ, I love my Heavenly Father, and I know that the church is true.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday and do my best to attend the social activities each week. I took a few religious classes at Institute while I was in college. I loved my class about Teachings of Thomas S. Monson.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No. We help everyone. Jesus Christ was kind to everyone and we have been asked to follow His example. I strive to follow His example by loving everyone, not just members of my church. Show more Show less
