Hi I'm Shelby

I grew up in California/Utah. I am a sophomore in college. I am serving in the Korea Busan Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a dad, a mom, one older sister, one younger sister, a rabbit, three cats, and a fish. Growing up with these hooligans has taught me the definition of good music, the importance of sentence structure, and the power of optimism amid hard work. I love my hooligans. As a sophomore at Brigham Young University-Idaho, I am aspiring to figure out what to aspire to (probably something math/science related). I work in the kitchen at a nursing home and an OldNavy. I love hiking, making pizza, and playing volleyball. I laugh at everything--loudly. I dance like a wet noodle and I cannot whistle. If we ever met, you will receive a hug.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church. My parents have taught me the principles of this gospel since I was very young. After reading the Book of Mormon, attending church services and activities, and praying to God; the Holy Spirit has told me in my mind and heart that this is Christ's church. The gospel that we share is the same gospel that Christ taught during His earthly ministry. The Book of Mormon contains these unaltered truths and which were restored through the prophet Joseph Smith in 1860. God speaks to us today through Latter-day prophets and through the Holy Ghost. Our lives have a purpose because God has a plan for us that extends into eternity. My testimony of this gospel leads me to hope. I know my flaws can my forgiven and I can become and better person everyday because of the Atonement of Christ. I know that eternal happiness beyond anything we can imagine awaits us if we follow Him. I know I can be with the ones I love forever. I have found a fulness of joy.

How I live my faith

I serving a mission in Busan, South Korea to teach inviting everyone to come unto Jesus Christ!
