Hi I'm Shelby Winn

I grew up in Utah, I love my family more then anything. I love to be around people. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a senior in high school and I will graduate as a dental assistant. I play lacrosse on the varsity team for my high school, I hope to play in college for a year till I am old enough to serve a mission. I love my family, my 3 dogs, my best friends Trevor, and Hannah. I love to make others happy and I always hope to make others feel good about themselves and that's something I truly deeply care about! I love my dad and my mom so much because they both sacrifice so much for me and my siblings, I love those siblings just as much because they are my best friends and always there for me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for to many reasons to even count! I was raised in the church and learned it growing up. I came to the age where it was more my choice to live this gospel and to be a Mormon, I wanted to very much but at first it was maybe because I thought it was the right thing to do, I read my scriptures, went to church, and worked on my young women's medallion but eventually I wasn't feeling the spirit as much as I should while doing all those good things, it was when I decided to pray for myself about this gospel when I was truly converted! When I prayed about if these things were right for me, and if these things were true and I got my answer that they are more true then anything on this earth. I have a testimony of eternal families and how important they are to Heavenly Fathers plan for us they are no endings in this gospel only everlasting beginnings. I love that I have the comfort and knowledge tha I can be with my family for Eternity and that we can always keep that as a goal to live righteously! I have had trials just like every single other person here on earth, I have learned more then anything that if we can endure those trials with faith and prayer we can overcome them, and I know that when we aren't following the commandments or we are struggling we will also struggle to find that bright happiness that I know I get from living this gospel and doing those uplifting things. If you want a simpler answer as to why I am a mormon then I would tell you it's because it will bring you more happiness, comfort, confidence, and feeling of being loved then any feeling you could ever get from anything else. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the simple things that make me stronger. I like to think of it as putting on the Armor of God by reading the Book Of Mormon, going to church, attending all of my meetings, and doing service for others. One of my favorite ways to live my faith is by regularly going to the Temple. The spirit is so strong there and I feel this overwhelming happiness it is the best thing I could ever ask for. I love to know by doing temple work I am not only receiving added blessings in my own personal life, but I am helping to bless others. I live my faith by showing love and kindness to others, I think the best way to be an example to those who don't know much about our faith is to just always be kind, happy, and loving and I think those things are very Christ like and that's the best way to live my faith!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Shelby Winn
Mormons do not only help Mormons, we are taught to help and love everyone. We have many programs in the church to help Mormons and non Mormons, I believe in our church we all want to reach out, serve and help we many people as we can in any way we can. If you are a non member we aren't going to make you become a member because we helped you either, we truly just care about you. Show more Show less
