Hi I'm Shawn Rocha

I was born in Tulsa and raised in Broken Arrow Oklahoma.

About Me

I am the youngest of three children in my family. I grew up in Broken Arrow Oklahoma and spent most of my youth spending quality time with my friends and family. I graduated from high school when I was a bit older but still made it! I served a mission in the Utah Salt Lake City Mission. I'm currently working and going to school. In my free time I usually like to listen to music, play games, shopping, camping, hanging out with my friends. One day I hope that I will be able to travel and see the world for myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church but I grew up in a Spanish Congregation and that would normally be ok but I don't speak Spanish fluently and it was hard for me to understand and learn much of the things being taught growing up. It eventually came to a point in my life where I needed to know for myself if these things were true. Because Heavenly Father loves me and each and every one of us, a simple prayer changed me and my entire life. I know that he can do the same for anyone who will humble themselves to his will and in return you will be bless with so much. Overall I am a Mormon because I had the desire to know for myself if it was true and Heaven Father told me it was, so I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true Church on the entire Earth today!

How I live my faith

At the moment I'm serving a mission which means that I've left behind all my personal things to serve other and Jesus Christ. I love being a missionary so much because it has challenged me to my very soul but also because I love not have to focus on myself but rather on others and how I can help them live a more meaningful, consistent, happy life. Nothing has brought me more happiness than serving others and I know this because of a perfect example of charity and service is Jesus Christ whom I've learned about as I've gone to Church and read my scriptures.
