Hi I'm Shay Burns

My name is Shay Burns. I grew up in Charlotte,NC. I currently attending BYU-I. I believe Jesus Christ is essential to all mankind.

About Me

My name Shay. I am a convert of 2 and a half yrs. I love sharing the gospel with others and teaching about Christ and his atonement. I am currently attending Brigham Young University - Idaho. I want to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or a Psychiatrist. I enjoy helping others. I love playing pool, football, volleyball, basketball and video games. Mental Health and Neuroscience are two fields that I enjoy studying.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Savior is the only reason why I still have breath in this mortal body and I know that as I continue to truly seeks after his heart and not my own that I shall be numbered among the first resurrection.I believe in his word and i do believe that he has people on this earth who are called to share the gospel. More specifically he has called prophets and seers. I know that my calling on this earth is to service my brethren and to make sure they have a way to return to Heavenly Father. I know that if I continue to keep the commandments and instill those attributes of Christ into my family and friends they will be numbered with me. I testify that I have felt and seen the Savior’s grace, love, and charity among many other things among this earth today. If we choose to allow him to abide in our hearts and truly have the desire to follow his will we will be at the right hand God and you will hear the words “ Well done my good and faithful servant"

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving everyday to be like Christ and by instilling those attributes in others around me.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Shay Burns
The atonement of Jesus Christ was essential for all of mankind to be able to return to Heavenly Father. The atonement is the cleansing of sins and transgressions. No unclean thing can enter into the kingdom of heaven. Which means there had to be a pure sacrifice made so that they is a way back to home which is Jesus Christ. Also, the atonement is just along with first having faith in Jesus Christ, repenting of our sins, being baptized and confirmed by someone who has authority, receiving the gift of the holy ghost, obeying the commandments ,receive sacred ordinances and striving to become more like him ( Jesus Christ). The atonement of Jesus Christ is for everyone and can be used at anytime. There is no sin that he has not felt or does not understand. He atonement is infinite and available to you at all times no matter where you are in your journey. Show more Show less
