Hi I'm Shayne

I'm a guy who live is Utah. I love this gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a guy who tries his best to do his best.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because my senior year in high school was the worst year of my life. Struggling with Depression and Anxiety. Feeling trapped. I was doing things that I thought were helping me, but they were leading me further from the gospel. And at the time I was okay with this, because I thought these things were making me happier. The thing about Satan, is he'll make you things you're doing are okay, and that they really do make you happy. But he gets his joy when he takes those things, and makes the come collapsing down. And that's what happened to me, he took it all, and then I had no happiness. I was stuck for that entire year. I don't know how my parents survived that year. I was failing school, falling away from the gospel, told them I wasn't going on a mission, and that I was going to move away from them because we were fighting all the time. My life was in shambles. One day my sister came down into my room, I was feeling so depressed. I told her I didn't know what to do, and she reminded me saying "You may not consider yourself Mormon anymore, but God will still listen to you, and comfort you". She left, and minutes later I got down on my knees and started praying. I hadn't prayed in months. I started to cry and plead with God. Asking him to take my pain away. After a long time of praying, I was laying in my bed and I got a feeling that I needed to talk to my bishop, and confess to him. That if I were to do that, God would forgive me. I went into my Bishops office, and I just talked about how I was feeling, and how I was lost. My Bishop asked me to keep praying. So I did. It wasn't too long till I started thinking about a mission again. I then started going to church. I started getting my life back. Fast forward a year, and now I've got my call to serve the people in Tampa Florida. I go to church every week. I got ordained to the office of Elder. And I feel genuinely happy with my life. I owe this all to my Savior. He saved me. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to talk to other, and make them feel welcome.
