Hi I'm Shayna Carson

I was born and raised in good old Utah valley and have been mormon my whole life and I could not be more grateful.

About Me

About 2 years ago, I was heading down a very dark path, it took a lot of hard work to get myself in line and use the atonement. Through the process, it seemed worthless, but now, after its all forgotten, I could not be more joyful, happy, and loved. I am going to college in Utah valley, and I love anything outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being so brings whole, complete, and wonderful happiness. I know for a fact that I can turn to my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ if I am ever feeling sad or upset and they will continuously help and comfort me. The fact that I am able to do that, and that everyone is able to do that blows my mind. We constantly have God on our side, how wonderful is that?! I love this gospel so much and I want everyone to be able to feel the joy that I feel everyday because of it.

How I live my faith

Being almost an adult and about to serve my mission, there isn't a lot of callings that I could have. But I personally think that the best way to live through faith is through example. And I don't mean fake faith just to put on a show. I mean being an example of a christlike person for family and freinds. I also think its very important to live with dedication to your faith. No matter how large or small it is. Own that faith and continue to grow on it. That's what I try to do constantly.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Shayna Carson
To come to know our Heavenly Father, you first have to have a desire to know him. It will not come easily, and it will be very difficult at times. But the reward in the end is anything beyond our imagination. Simply, to know your father in Heaven, you must pray with a true heart, wanting to know answers. Then you can read the Book of Mormon. This book has all of the answers. And most importantly, keep his commandments. Show more Show less

Who are the Mormons?

Shayna Carson
Mormons are normal, imperfect people trying to live a perfect gospel. We try to live, act, speak, and serve as Christ would. The church of Jesus Christ is what our church is called and it is based off of the bible. We have the Book of Mormon which is basically like a second bible. Simply put, our church is the same church that was established by Jesus Christ while he was on the earth. Show more Show less
