Hi I'm Shayla Archibald

I was born and raised in Utah. I love the outdoors and trying new things. Bright colors are my favorite. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the church in a big family of 5 sisters and 1 brother. My family is my life. My favorite place to go with my family is to Lake Powell we have many memories there. I love to go boating and snow skiing. Those are things I grew up doing. Being creative and trying new things is one of my favorite things to do. Anything I can do with my hand I enjoy. Playing in the mud, or building something out of wood all are joys to me. I also love all sports to soccer, volleyball, horse back riding, ballroom dancing and water sports. I'm currently a college student that has decided to serve a mission. I'm headed to Ukraine!!! I can't wait to share what I know, love, and live. I love the outdoors and going on adventures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. And because of their teachings and the promises here on this earth, I know that I will get back to them. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know that the things that happened in that book really did happen. I also know that through the example of the past prophets in the Book of Mormon I can learn from them as I continue to hold to the iron rod to get back to my Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I live the teachings of the Holy Ghost and the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping up on my personal study and continues learning things every day. I have a firm testimony in prayer and that the Lord does answer them on his own time. Every day I look for ways to serve people. Weather is helping to build a shed, a simple smile walking down the street, or taking to someone who needs a listening ear. I love people in general and all the unique and interesting qualities each of us children of Heavenly Father gives us. Our talents are here on this earth to help each other. We all need help. We all need someone to lean on. I pray every day for a new experience to help someone. and by doing so I grew spiritually. it helps strengthen my testimony of who I am and what I believe.
